Eglin Officer Held on Sex Charges

An Eglin Air Force Base officer is facing sexual assault charges.

Captain Devery L. Taylor is being charged with two counts of attempted sodomy, four counts of forcible sodomy and three counts of kidnapping by holding someone against their will.

This stemmed from a complaint filed by a man who claims he and Taylor met at an Okaloosa Island night spot, that Taylor drugged him, then sexually assaulted him at Taylor's apartment.

Taylor will have an Article 32 hearing, which is like a grand jury hearing, to see if there's enough evidence for a general court martial.

He's now in pre-trial military confinement on Eglin until the trial, which hasn't been set yet.
