Witnesses allege years of sex abuse from grandfather figure in Bluffs
The teenager’s suicide note read that he couldn’t live with the abuse he suffered at the hands of an 80-year-old Council Bluffs man who was like a grandfather to him, the teen testified in court Tuesday.
The teen said Jackie Taylor sexually molested him for years beginning around 2012 while the teen was in seventh grade.
Taylor is charged with four counts of third-degree sexual abuse and lascivious acts with a child stemming from two alleged victims.

They are protected by New York State laws.
