Lee County deputy accused of sexual abuse

A former Lee County sheriff's deputy has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing a minor younger than 12-years old.

38-year old Kevin Wayne Taylor of Phenix City was arrested by state investigators Wednesday afternoon and taken to the Lee County Detention Center where he posted 10 thousand dollars bond.

The victim's mother told deputies she believed her daughter had been inappropriately touched by Taylor, who is an acquaintance of the victim and her family.

Taylor faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
