John C. Barnett, a civil rights activist, took up the defense of Timothy Da'Shaun Taylor, holding a press conference in McClellanville on Wednesday. Taylor pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a Hobbs Act robbery in 2011. The case was resurrected by federal investigators when an informant implicated him in the case of Brittanee Drexel's 2009 disappearance from a Myrtle Beach motel. Taylor faces at least a decade in prison on the conspiracy charge.
