IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A 25-year-old Idaho Falls man on parole for a statutory rape conviction has been charged with raping a woman in August.
The Post-Register reports that a judge set bond for Mitch S. Taylor at $75,000 on Friday. His preliminary hearing was continued to Dec. 8. Court records show that he was sentenced in 2009 in Madison County Court to 1 ½ years to five years in prison for statutory rape. He is now accused of raping a woman on Aug. 21.
According to court documents, the victim told investigators she and Taylor got into an argument that he reportedly punched and raped her. Taylor told investigators that he hit her but that they had consensual sex.
