Sex Offender Accused Of Raping Family Member

(Memphis) A Memphis man is behind bars after a female family member accused him of raping her several times over a four-year period.

Forty-sevenyear-old Daren Taylor is behind bars with a $1 million bond.

He is charged with aggravated rape, rape, and incest.

Taylor is a listed sex offender after a 1995 charge that he raped another family member.

“He was a nice quiet guy but you never know who is staying next to you. I’m glad to know now,” said Frank Black that lives next door to Taylor.

According to the affidavit, Taylor raped the girl several times between 2003 and 2007, while the girl was between 13 and17 years old.

The affidavit said Taylor told the girl “some things we just take to the grave.”

“It’s very common for victims as the mature to come forward. When they’re abused as a child they have the reactions of a child and they kind of have to process that before they become strong enough to come forward and to point out the offender,” said Anna Whalley at the Memphis-Shelby County Rape Crisis Center.
