53-years-old Illinois prison guard,Oscar Taylor, has resigned after 22 years of service when a surveillance video shows him watching a porn video on his cellphone with two inmates inside the Cook County Jail’s barbershop.
Taylor who was supposed to be monitoring inmates while they had their hair cut, was caught by sheriff’s investigators watching the pornographic videos alongside 39-year-old Tyrone Noel and 27-year-old William Taylor. (Oscar Taylor and William Taylor are not related.)
Investigators also found a firearm in Officer Taylor’s car. His FOID card is currently revoked because of an incident that occurred when he wasn’t on duty.
Taylor, of Oak Park, was charged with three counts of unauthorized bringing of contraband into a penal institution, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for carrying an uncased revolver in close proximity of ammunition.
Tyrone Noel and William Taylor were both charged with possession of contraband.
Oscar Taylor resigned shortly after being charged and he was released on electronic monitoring after his bind hearing on Wednesday.
