PAROLE DENIED: Jason Lashun Taylor was sentenced in 2002 to 20 years in prison for first-degree robbery and four years for theft of property in Covington County. He has served nearly 18 years of the 20-year term. Taylor was convicted of promoting prison contraband in 2004 and sentenced to 10 years. He was convicted of the same crime in 2005 and sentenced to 15 years. The attorney general’s office, which opposed parole, said Taylor has committed 86 prison disciplinary infractions, six in 2019 alone. “He has not really shown he is being correct,” a representative of the attorney general testified Wednesday.
