Former Deputy Will Stand Trial Again for Official Oppression

A former East Texas sheriff's deputy accused of beating an inmate last year will be re-tried.

April 11th is the new trial date for Marshall Scott Taylor. He is accused of abusing his power while working at the Trinity County Sheriff's Office.

Taylor is now a deputy constable in Trinity County. He was tried last summer for nearly knocking a prisoner unconscious. The four-day trial ended with a hung jury.

If convicted of official oppression, Taylor faces two years in jail and permanent loss of his peace officer's license.
