Gang Member Sentenced to Serve More Than Sixteen Years in Federal Prison for Carjacking

OKLAHOMA CITY – TREVOR KANE TAYLOR, 31, of Oklahoma City, has been sentenced to serve more than 16 years in federal prison for carjacking, announced Timothy J. Downing, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.

A Superseding Information filed on March 4, 2020, charged Taylor with one count of conspiracy to commit carjacking and one count of carjacking. On March 5, 2020, Taylor pleaded guilty to both counts of the Superseding Information.

According to evidence presented at a sentencing hearing earlier this week, on October 28, 2019, Taylor and another individual carjacked a vehicle at gunpoint in Tuttle, Oklahoma. Senior United States District Judge Stephen P. Friot then sentenced Taylor to 60 months’ imprisonment on Count 1 and 140 months’ imprisonment on Count 2, with the prison terms to run consecutively. These consecutive terms resulted in a total sentence of 200 months’ imprisonment. Judge Friot also sentenced Taylor to serve three years of supervised release following his term of imprisonment. In imposing Taylor’s sentence, Judge Friot noted Taylor’s character and lengthy criminal history. Public records reflect that Taylor holds multiple felony convictions, including those for possession of a taken credit card, knowingly concealing stolen property, and possession of a controlled substance.

These charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Tuttle Police Department, and the Chickasha Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward J. Kumiega.
