Daniel Saylor arrested on a perjury charge, Friday, March, 22, 2013.
Scott Bush convicted of child rape in January
Scott Frederick Bush was convicted of child rape and sentenced to life in prison.
CASSELBERRY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
Former Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor was arrested on Friday on a perjury charge.
Investigators with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement allege that Saylor, 46, provided false testimony during the sexual battery trial of a friend, Scott Bush.
This is the second time Saylor has been arrested in connection with this case. He was first arrested in January of 2011 for one count of giving unlawful compensation for official behavior, and one count of official misconduct.
Saylor had pleaded guilty to official misconduct charges, stemming from a 2010 FDLE investigation alleging Saylor terminated an investigation by his department into the sexual battery of a child to keep Bush from going to jail.
Bush was subsequently arrested by FDLE agents for sexual battery on two children who are now adults. He was convicted in January and sentenced to life in prison on Friday, after Orange County Circuit Judge Julie O'Kane denied his request for a new trial.
A FOX 35 news crew was present when Saylor was picked by FDLE agents, without incident, at his probation office in Casselberry. He is currently booked into the Seminole County Jail.
