Violated probation more than once. Hearings. Warrants. You know the deal.
Sentenced to 60 days and got credit for 60 days.
Taylor is currently sitting in jail with 2 million dollars bail on the murder change, and also bail of $50,000 on a weapons charge. It appears he has been in the jail since August 9. His address is listed as 4100 Shoreline Drive, Robbinsdale, Minnesota.
The name "Kemen Taylor" comes up in some interesting ways. There is a guy with the same name (unknown if it's the same guy) who spoke at a public hearing in June of 2008 and lambasted the police because of "run ins" his family had with the police, click here for Strib article. Here is the relevant quote from the article.
And, notably, this Kemen Taylor appears to be the same miserable lowlife who used 2223 Bryant Ave. N. as his address on the jail roster when arrested over allegedly possessing some very serious weapons, click here for article. This is the house across the street from my own house where my front security camera is directly pointed.
Gee, I really hope the prosecutors can make this indictment stick.
