Wed., 10:50am: Warren man gets 41 years for robbery, abduction

WARREN — Taylor Ervin-Williams, 21, has been sentenced today to 41 years in prison.

The Warren man was found guilty in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court last week of robbery and abduction.

Trumbull County Common Pleas Judge Ronald Rice sentenced him to 36 years in prison on the home invasion case plus an additional five years stemming from a probation violation connected to a previous burglary.

Reports state he forced family members to withdraw money from their ATM accounts.

Prosecutors said Ervin-Williams went to a home on Charles Avenue last February and forced family members at gunpoint to drive to an ATM and take out money.

Ervin-Williams was on probation for a 2012 burglary conviction when he committed the robbery and abduction.
