‘Jekyll and Hyde’ sexual predator Truro cricket coach jailed | #childpredator | #kidsaftey | #childsaftey

A “Jekyll and Hyde” sexual predator cricket coach who used his position to abuse woman players has been sent to prison. Victims of David Taylor, 61, still speak of him as a brilliant coach, such was the impossible position he put them in.

Taylor, of Upland Crescent in Truro, appeared at Truro Crown Court for sentence having last week been found guilty of six sexual assaults on three women. Back in 2021 Taylor was convicted after a trial but not jailed for touching a woman and a teenager without consent. Media coverage of the trial resulted in more victims coming forward and a second trial taking place.

Taylor’s latest offending involved touching up or kissing three women, as well as exposing his penis to one of them. Taylor even brazenly offended with others present.

At Taylor’s sentencing, a victim impact statement was read to the court on behalf of one of the victims in which she spoke of not realising how inappropriate the behaviour was and feeling angry, stressed and physically and mentally exhausted by the ordeal.

A second victim read a powerful victim impact statement in person. She said: “I feel an array of emotions. I feel relieved, anxious, sadness and guilt. I remain thankful for his efforts in making me better at cricket and feel sad it has come to this.

“Ten years ago cricket was a male dominated sport with no grassroots funding for women. We felt lucky to have someone to give us quality coaching and I looked back on those times with fond memories. These memories have now been tarnished by the realisation I was a victim of sexual abuse.”
