GLENDIVE – Former police Officer Taylon Bain has been sentenced on four counts of sexual intercourse without consent and one count of sexual abuse of a child, according to reports.
Reports indicated that there were at least four girls, between the ages of 13 and 16, who were victims of the molestation.
Many other victims are believed to have not come forward yet.
Bain was diagnosed with multiple deviancies or compulsive predatory sexual interests, according to reports.
He was described as using his “position of power” to “groom his victims,” including his time as a police officer in the Glendive Police Department.
One of the girls said she thought that what Bain asked her to do sexually was “okay because he was a policeman.”
Bain also got a job working at a dance class with young children, and he volunteered at the community’s Special Olympics program.
Judge Simonton noted “Even though you pleaded guilty to the four instances of sexual intercourse without consent it appears that there were many more…”
“Your lawyer indicated you have a deviant sexual condition. I agree. Unfortunately that condition is uncontrolled,” the judge added.
Bain was then sentenced to 32 years in prison, with 24 of those years suspended.
He will be registered as a sex offender and be required to take annual HIV tests, as well as monitored whenever he is around anybody under the age of 18.
The judge said that there were likely additional victims and that incidents like this are generally “not the whole story.”
