Jury Finds Local Man Innocent Of Sexual Assault Charge

WACO (April 22, 2014) A 54th State District Court jury returned a not guilty verdict Tuesday in the sexual assault trial of Jason Johnell Taylor of Waco.

Taylor was arrested in August 2012 and was charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit sexual assault after a woman told police a man whom she met at a local food bank followed her home and raped her.

After the attacker left, the victim called police, who found the man a short time later walking down a nearby street, police said.
