Uninvited Guest At Combs House In East Hampton Pleads Guilty To Trespassing

Jul 10, 2012 4:47 PM

The Queens man who illegally entered rapper and entrepreneur Sean Combs’s house in East Hampton on April 1 pleaded guilty to criminal trespass in East Hampton Town Justice Court last Thursday.

Quamine T. Taylor was sentenced to serve 120 days in the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside and a five-year order of protection was issued against him by East Hampton Town Justice Lisa A. Rana. It orders him to stay away from Mr. Combs’s East Hampton house and other residences until July 5, 2017, according to the Suffolk County district attorney’s office. A charge of petit larceny was dismissed.

Mr. Taylor, who is 30, has been held in the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside since April 1, or 96 days, after failing to post $2,000 cash bail following an arraignment in April.

According to East Hampton Town Police, he took a train to East Hampton from New York City, entered the house through an unlocked basement door, helped himself to food and beverages and slept in an upstairs bedroom. A security alarm went off at the house, ultimately resulting in his arrest. Mr. Taylor had been arrested for the same crime, at the same house, on June 24, 2001.

The only "uninvited guest" should have been the FBI and State Police. When it comes down to it.. One wonders who killed Topac and Biggie.

wow break into someones house and you get a harsher sentence then if you drive drunk and kill someone? I'm not siding with the person who broke in, just wondering who the judges are really protecting
