Jefferson County Man Accused of Attempted Rape of 14-Year-Old Girl
Jefferson County -
A Jefferson County man pleaded not guilty to a slew of charges on Wednesday after he allegedly attempted to rape a 14-year-old girl back in March.
55-year-old Adam Taylor has been indicted by the Jefferson County Grand Jury on charges including sexual battery, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and rape - all of which he pleaded not guilty to on Wednesday. Prosecutor Jane Hanlin said the case could have been much worse had no one caught him. She said, "The only reason this is an attempted rape rather than a completed rape is because somebody walked in on him. And so, if not for that happening we would be dealing with a much worse situation than we are right now."
