Daniel Saylor Found Guilty of Lying In Case

A six-member jury deliberated just more than an hour before finding Windermere’s former police chief, Daniel Saylor, guilty of perjury for lying during his testimony in the child-rape trial of his friend, Scott Bush.

Saylor was accused of falsely claiming at trial that two outside agencies recommended against charging Bush after sexual abuse allegations against the Windermere man first surfaced in 2003.

In reality, prosecutor Ryan Williams said in the state’s closing argument, Saylor “took the stand and told a statement that was not true — a lie — to undercut [Bush’s victims’] credibility,” Williams said.
