The overweight sicko was jailed for nine months after he pleaded guilty to three counts of unlawful carnal knowledge between September and December 2007. Taylor admitted flaying to the North of IIreland three times and having sex with the vulnerable young girl after first meeting her on an internet chat room. During his sentencing hearing the court heard sickening evidence that Tylor booked into hotels in Antrim three times during a four-month period in 2007 for sex with the girl after he had phoned and texted her. The court was told that on one occasion the girl came straight to the hotel straight from school in her uniform and she had her schoolbooks with her, leaving Tylor in no doubt about what age she was. The girl told police that she informed Taylor she was 15 at their first meeting and he replied : “That’s all right.”

In interveiws, Tylor said the girl had a young looking face, but he claimed nothing was ever mentioned abouth her age. He said the sex was consensual and that the girl was “an experienced and willing participent “. The court heard the girl told police that in her veiw the accused had done nothing wrong. The lawyer said that the girl’s mother rang Taylor to tell him to leave her alone because she was only 15. He claimed he immediately broke off contact with the girl, but the girls mother said her dadaughter’s third meeting with him came after a phone call.


Judge Gemma LLough ran said that by sending Tylor to prison she was sending out a clear signal that the law existed to protect all young people. As well as serving time Tylor was ordered to sign the sex offenders ‘ register and was banned from unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18 for five years.But the brazen pervert ignored the conditations and was this week hauled before the courts after he was discovered organising a monthly disco for under 11s at the Funtastic Play Centre in his home town of Radcliffe. Following the venue’s first show on March 1, bosses became aware of Tylor’s past and immediately called police. He performed for more than two hours to a crowd of 25 children for a 30 fee and later told officers he had not understood the terms of the order. He was arrested for breaching the order after the disco, and hauled before Bury magistrates court.Shazia Aslam, prosecuting, said : The defendant is prohibited from working with children or vulnerable adults and is allowed no unsupervised contact with any under-18 unless it is consented by the parents or police.


The court heard an employee had aapproached Taylor with a view to employing him to DJ a monthly children’s disco for zero to 11-year-olds beginning on March 1. The court heard the staff member contacted Taylor as he is the brother of one of her good friends. She made it clear to him that the party was for children aged under 11. He set up his lights and DJ equipment and the children started to arrive at 5.45pm and were supervised by parents. The party ended at 8pm when the music was stopped and the defendant left at 8.30pm. Emma Savage, defending, said : There’s clearly work that needs to be done with Mr Taylor. This offence has been committed as he had some confusion with the conditions of the Sex Offender Order. He was given a six-month community order with supervision. He was also order-ed to pay £85 costs and a £60 victim surcharge. A spokesman for Funtastic Play Centre said : Everyone at Funtastic Play Centre is deeply upset by the recent events and we are relieved the matter has been dealt with.
