Army Guard officer arrested on child pornography counts

By Star-Advertiser staff


An Army National Guard captain was arrested Wednesday by U.S. marshals for alleged possession of child pornography in 2010 and will be extradited to Missouri.

Darrin J. Taylor, 47, is being held in the police cellblock on an arrest warrant that was issued in the Circuit Court of Christian County, Mo., charging him with two class C felony counts of possession of child pornography in the first degree.

U.S. marshals, Hawaii sheriff deputies and U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations special agents arrested Taylor at his home in the 300 block of Gemini Avenue on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

With Taylor was a 16-month-old child who is believed to be his son. The child was turned over to Taylor's spouse, who was at work at the time.

The U.S. Marshals task force said Taylor relocated to Honolulu in August. He is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Guess he won't be going home for, oh, say, about 10 years. At least.

No way should anyone be arrested for having an "image" of something. This is an unjust Law. eventually millions of Computers or devices will have or be infected with these "images". Can they resort to arresting millions? The Supreme Court erred to rule that only ONE form of images are illegal. Odd that they have ruled that no matter how gross or repulsive things are, that it is Constitutional. And yet, they have made an exception. Not very consistent to pick and choose. This is NOT for the product but for freedoms, consistency, and justice. Pity. "
