Darryl Lealon Taylor admitted to three felonies Feb. 21 in an agreement with prosecutors. He was sentenced to one year in custody, five years’ probation and ordered to complete a domestic violence prevention program, according to court records .
According to court records, Taylor sent the woman messages threatening to kill her before confronting her in the middle of the afternoon in the Pechanga Resort & Casino employee parking area of the casino in the 45000 block of Pechanga Parkway. As the woman opened her car door on her way to work, Taylor grabbed her and began choking her.
A bystander heard the struggle and called out, prompting Taylor to run away, but he soon returned, court records say. Pechanga security guards intervened, detaining Taylor until deputies arrived.
The Pechanga Resort and Casino was the site of a recent murder of a man shot in his hotel room.
The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians is well know for terminating members from their tribe, in order to steal per capita money. That total has surpassed $400 MILLION. The Tribe is also attempting to change the definition of an allottee, in order to control water rights.
