In case any of you were wondering, there is an Associated Press article stating that Jermain Taylor has now formally plead innocent by reason of mental disease or defect in regards to an alleged attack on a man at his rehab facility. Taylor entered the plea with the court today where Taylor is accused of striking another resident of the rehab center - a place Taylor was being held after a couple of other disturbing incidents where Taylor allegedly threatened a family with a gun at the MLK Day parade and also allegedly shot his cousin in his home. Taylor has plead innocent by reason of mental disease or defect to those charges as well.

I just wonder what this means of that psychiatrist who requested Jermain Taylor be released from custody several months back. Jermain is once again undergoing a court-ordered mental examination, and perhaps that shrink should be undergoing some sort of evaluation as well. Just my thoughts...
