UPDATE: Del. man pleaded guilty to multiple 2015, 2016 rapes

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. - A serial rapist pleaded guilty to his role in multiple rapes that happened between 2015 and 2016, in Delaware.

The Delaware Office of the Attorney General says on Friday, 31- year-old Temourise Taylor, of Dagsboro, pleaded guilty to the charges of attempted murder first degree, rape second degree, unlawful imprisonment first degree, strangulation, and terroristic threatening, in Delaware. These charges stem for multiple incidents where Taylor would get women into his car, drive them to a secluded location, and then rape them while threatening to kill them and/or physically beating them. 

In the summer of 2015, Taylor punched and strangled a woman who tried to resist his attack. In the summer of 2016, the 31-year-old, apparently raped two women. In that incident he beat one woman and threatened to other saying he had a knife. In December 2016, Taylor stabbed his last victim after she resisted his attempt to rape her. 

Taylor is facing a minimum sentence of 25 years, with a possible sentence of up to life plus 33 years in prison. Taylor is expected to be sentenced  by a Superior Court Judge in January 2018.

Delaware State Police Detective Mark Doughty  was the lead investigator on this case. DOJ social worker Carla Ennals,  DOJ administrative specialist Angie Waters, and DOJ paralegal Veronica McKain also assisted in the resolution of this case.
