Bali Holiday Takes a Death

David Taylor and Sarah Connor Sentenced in Killing of Balinese Policeman

(3/18/2017)

The Denpasar District Court on Monday, March 13, 2017, sentenced English DJ David Taylor (35) to 6 years and, in a separate proceeding, his Australian companion, Sarah Connor (45) to 4 years in prison in the death of a Balinese policeman Wayan Sudarsa that took place on August 17, 2016, on Kuta Beach.

Beritabali.com reports that Taylor immediately accepted the judges’ sentence while Connor’s lawyers are urging their client to appeal the verdict, albeit at the risk that an appeal court could impose a heavier sentence.

In seeming response to Connors, Prosecutors in Bali said they were prepared to double down and are also considering appealing Connor's sentence in order to seek a heavier penalty against the Australian woman. Sentences in Indonesia can be appealed by both the defendent and prosecutors. Because Taylor readily accepted the Court's verdict, Prosecutors are not signalling any desire to challenge his sentence.

The couple has publicly apologized to the family of the dead policemen, rejecting any financial compensation offered by those involved in the killing of the police officer.

Taylor and Connor were spending after an evening of drinking in Kuta when at 3:45 am the couple had an altercation with the Indonesian policeman in which the Sudarsa was beaten to death by Taylor who was, in the view of the Court, assisted by Connor who reportedly helped choke the policeman.

The fight began when Taylor accused the policeman of having stolen Connor’s purse, an accusation for which no supporting evidence was ever presented.

Both Taylor and Connor received sentences less severe than that sought by State Prosecutors.
