U.S. DISTRICT COURT - On January 7, 2019, Travis J. Taylor, 38, of Marion, has been sentenced for the April 25, 2018, robbery of the Valero Gas Station in Marion.

Taylor, who had previously pled guilty to the one-count indictment charging Interference with Commerce by Robbery, in violation of the Hobbs Act, was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment to be followed by 3 years of supervised release. The district court also ordered Taylor to pay $1,118.00 in restitution.

Evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings established that on April 25, 2018, Taylor entered the Valero Gas Station and forcibly ordered the clerk to remove money from the cash registers. Taylor was wearing a mask over his face and told the clerk that he had a gun. Marion police officers and a Marion K-9 located and arrested Taylor after a vehicle and foot pursuit. The district judge imposed a sentence above the advisory sentencing guidelines range based on Taylor’s criminal history and the fact that Taylor had previously violated the terms of his supervised release on a prior federal conviction. The Marion Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation.
