Jakaris Taylor, Dunbar Village Rapist Gets 20-Year Sentence

Jakaris Taylor is a 16-year-old boy who's life will never be the same because of his decision to join a gang. Nine of his gang buddies joined him in rape, sodomy and cruelty imposted on a 35-year old single Black mother and her 12-year old son earlier this summer. Click here for our original post on the Dunbar Village gang rape. He could have faced life sentence for the indictment on each of the three charges of burglary with battery, and two counts of sexual battery with a gun while wearing a mask.
Instead, he flipped. He took a deal.

Jakaris agreed to testify against his co-defendants in exchange for a 20-year prison sentence. His plea deal gives him a 20-year sentence on each charge to be served simultaneously, with credit for 130 days served. He will also be branded a sexual predator, according to the agreement.

Taylor will now testify against his co-defendants, Avion Lawson, Nathan Walker and Tommy Poindexter.

I wonder if the police know who the other six rapists are from the original attack? Are the other six sexual predators still living untouched by the law in the Dunbar Village apartment complex where the rape took place?

In other words, Villagers, methinks that there will be more to this story over the coming weeks and months.
