The Richland Springs Report

The Richland Springs Report April 9, 2014. It wasn’t a flood, it wasn’t a deluge, but it was a welcomed dab of rain. The flowers will benefit from it and perhaps some of the grasses. I’m not too sure about the big trees and

Sexual Predator receives two consecutive life sentences

Judge Dan Mills of the 424th District Court handed down 2 consecutive life sentences for Brian Taylor on Tuesday after a jury found Taylor guilty of two counts of indecency with a child by contact. Since Taylor had previously been convicted of sexual abuse of a child in the state of Illinois, the jury's guilty verdicts triggered mandatory life sentences on each count. Judge Mills stacked the sentences, ensuring that the 37- year-old Taylor will not be eligible for parole for approximately 70 years.
