AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - A Maine man is headed to prison for violating his bail conditions and calling his girlfriend repeatedly while in jail.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2qD05fy ) that 33-year-old Derek Taylor, of Norridgewock, pleaded guilty to violating conditions of release Wednesday. Taylor will serve 20 months in prison.

Police say Taylor called his girlfriend while in Kennebec County Jail and got others to place calls under their names in January and February. Taylor was prohibited from contacting the woman named in his domestic assault charge as part of his bail condition.

Assistant District Attorney Michael Madigan says that Taylor told his girlfriend he loved her and wanted to marry her during the calls.

Charges of domestic violence assault and escape were dismissed in exchange for a guilty plea.
