Man Pleads Guilty To Drugging, Molesting Girl
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minneapolis man has pleaded guilty to drugging the soda of three girls at his daughter's sleepover and then molesting a 10-year-old girl.
Ezra Taylor was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a person under 13, and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Friday the 39-year-old pleaded guilty to all three charges.
Taylor faces up to 80 years in prison when he's sentenced on November 10th.
Prosecutors say Taylor acknowledged putting crushed sleeping pills in a girl's drink August 2nd and making her undress before molesting her.
The girl told authorities she felt dizzy and vomited after drinking the soda.
She says Taylor took her to the basement and assaulted her while her friends were sleeping.
Online court records Saturday didn't list a defense attorney for Taylor.
