ALBION – Morris Taylor, an Albion man who already faces charges for an armed robbery in February, was arraigned in Orleans County Court today on first-degree rape, forcible compulsion rape, and criminal sale and criminal possession of a controlled substance, both in the third degree.

Judge James Punch set bail for Taylor at $75,000. He is due back in court on Dec. 23 at 2 p.m.

Taylor, 23, of 239 East State St. is a former state track champion for Albion. He won the 400 meters in 2008.

On Feb. 28, he allegedly was armed with a knife and robbed a pizza delivery person outside Mark’s Pizzeria in Albion. After the robbery, Taylor allegedly left the area with $300.

The rape and drug charges are unrelated to the robbery and will be prosecuted separately, District Attorney Joe Cardone said.
