Former Daycare Worker Pleads Guilty to Sex Abuse
A former Bristow daycare teacher has been sentenced to 41 years in prison after pleading guilty to numerous sex offenses related to the abuse of several children under his care at Minniefield Academy in Bristow.
28-year-old Taylor Keith Boykin was sentenced last Thursday after pleading guilty in October to multiple counts of object sexual penetration, aggravated sexual battery, indecent liberties by a custodian, and producing child pornography.
At his sentencing hearing, Judge Lon E. Farris sentenced Boykin to life in prison, with all but 41 years of the sentence suspended.
Boykin was arrested in April 2018 and confessed to sexually abusing several children at the Minniefield Academy, located at 10368 Bristow Center Drive. According to prosecutors, an investigation uncovered 15 victims. Most of the victims were 4 or 5 years old when the abuse occurred and several were abused multiple times.
According to police and prosecutors, most of the abuse happened at the daycare’s playground. Boykin would reach into a tunnel slide and touch children inappropriately, including pulling down their pants and underwear and taking photos with his smartwatch. Police found 120 sexually explicit images on his watch.
During the hearing, eight parents testified on how traumatizing the abuse has been for their children and their families.
