Accused Sexual Abuser in Court

A former dorm aide at the Maryland School for the Deaf is due in court this morning. The hearing for Clarence Taylor is about charges he inappropriately touched girls when they were students. Several girls came forward at the end of last year. They are now ages 15 and 16 but the alleged assaults took place between 2008 and 2010, when the girls were between the ages of 10 and 13. In January, four more girls said they had been sexually abused by Taylor, who now faces seven counts of sexual abuse of a minor. He worked the evening shift at the Columbia school.
