Omar Portee became an informant BEFORE building a criminal empire!

Omar Portee became an informant BEFORE building a criminal empire! Portee began his criminal career as a robber at the age of 17. In the early hours of August 16, 1987, he claimed to have witnessed Don Taylor shoot and kill Terrance Joyner in the Bronx. Based on Portee's eyewitness testimony, Taylor was convicted on April 25, 1989, and sentenced to 22ยฝ years-to-life in prison. At the time of his original testimony, Portee was facing multiple charges in New York stemming from his arrest on August 31, 1987. As part of a cooperation agreement, which included his testimony against Don Taylor in People v Taylor, Portee was allowed to plead to two to six years for all charged crimes (two 1st-degree robbery convictions), received credit for 21 months' time served and was promised a favorable letter to the parole board. He started serving his sentence on June 9, 1989. He was released on June 20, 1990. Portee later recanted his prior testimony, and Taylor's conviction was vacated in 2004, whereupon Taylor was released from prison after having served over 10 years.
