SYCAMORE – A DeKalb man was arrested for not complying with state law that requires annual registration as a violent offender against youth.
Terry A. Taylor, 30, of Waterman was arrested Saturday for failure to register annually as a violent offender of youth, which is a Class 3 felony. If convicted, Taylor could face up to two to 10 years in prison.
Taylor pleaded guilty to previous charges against him first brought in 2016 for aggravated battery and domestic battery to his child, which caused bruising to the child’s face. Court records show the offense included the use or attempted use of physical force, or threatening to use a deadly weapon.
DeKalb County Judge Philip Montgomery set a $5,000 recognizance bond – meaning he was released from jail on his own signature – on all charges.
Taylor is due back in court 1:30 p.m. May 30 for the original aggravated battery case and 9 a.m. May 31 for the case regarding his failure to report his change in employment.
