Former Grand Forks County Sheriff Gordon Taylor has died. Taylor was sheriff for 12 years.

He was removed from office by then Governor George Sinner in 1986 for "misconduct... gross incompetence and crime in office." His removal followed a tumultuous two-year period in which he was convicted twice and acquitted once of drunken driving. Taylor passed away last night. He was 75. Funeral arrangements are pending.
