Tentative Plea Deal for Montecito Motors Owners


A tentative plea deal for Chet and Adam Taylor, former owners of Montecito Motors, has been reached, attorneys told Judge Clifford Anderson last week. The two, who allegedly scammed several car owners out of money in their high-end consignment auto dealership over a six-year span, are facing decades in prison if convicted of the charges they face. The two will be back in court on 5/17.
