Fifteenth Circuit Assistant Solicitor, Leigh Andrew says Malikaih Taylor, 39, pleaded guilty Monday, Nov. 6th without a recommendation or negotiation to first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

Andrew says Taylor’s case was being called for trial this week when he decided to plead guilty.  According to the solicitors office, the case involved a girl who was nine and 10 years old at the time of the incidents.

“This was a horrendous experience for the victim and we appreciate the dedicated work of Horry County Police officers to bring this perpetrator to justice,” Andrews said.
