Firefighter Fails to Register as Sex Offender

3-15-06 - A Kingston volunteer firefighter is behind bars Wednesday. 40-year old Dale Taylor was arrested Tuesday because he failed to register as a sex offender.

Taylor has volunteered his time as a Kingston firefighter for over a year, but in 1992 he was convicted of four counts of second degree rape and has not registered as a sex offender for almost two years. The situation was uncovered this past week when a concerned citizen tipped off authorities.

Back in 1986 Taylor was arrested for having sex with a minor and sentenced to 13 years in prison with five years probation. He is still in jail being held on a $100,000 bond.
