Parolee accused of stalking nuns in San Francisco pleads not guilty

A San Francisco parolee is accused of stalking nuns who run a local soup kitchen.

Dionn Taylor, 44, pleaded not guilty on Friday to two counts of stalking in connection to alleged incidents occurring at an undisclosed soup kitchen and at other city locations between Nov. 15 and Nov. 18, according to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.

Details about the alleged incidents were not released in an effort to protect the nuns, Assistant District Attorney Omid Talai said Monday.

Taylor has a long rap sheet in San Francisco, with a conviction in 1997 for making criminal threats and another in 2009 for dealing crack, Talai said. He was sentenced to two years in prison for the latter conviction.

He’s been sentenced to prison a total of four times, each for crimes done in San Francisco, Talai said.

Taylor remains in custody. He is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing on Dec. 15.
