NBA Star Dirk Nowitzki’s ex-fiancee sentenced to five years

August 25, 2009

(ChattahBox)— The former fiancée of Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, Cristal Taylor, was sentenced Monday to five years in prison on three felony counts, for violating probation in a 12-year-old forgery and theft case. The St. Louis-area native also earned a one-year jail term for a misdemeanor. Taylor, though, will only serve four years after she was credited for already serving a year in probation.

The sentence virtually ensures that Taylor, 38, will still be in prison when Nowitzki who has broken off all contact with her, and the Mavericks open the regular season in late October, but didn’t answer another big question. She would now be at least four-to-five months pregnant according to her claims in May of carrying Dirk’s baby, but dressed in a loose fitting orange jumpsuit no baby bump appeared obvious to court observers. Taylor also did not mention being pregnant in the four-page letter she submitted to Judge Schneider on July 20, requesting leniency, which seems odd. Nowitzki has previously filed a court document seeking custody of the unborn child.

Taylor, 38, is a woman with a checkered criminal past, but she lived together with Nowitzki for nearly two years and they were engaged to be married, at one time. Taylor was taken into custody and thrown into jail on May 6, when police showed up at Nowitzki’s Preston Hollow home, arresting her for on an outstanding parole violation, stemming from a 1999 Missouri conviction for passing bad checks and an outstanding warrant for an indictment for a theft of services charge, where she used a bad credit card for dental work she received in 2004, ranging from $1,500 to $20,000. Law enforcement officials from Missouri say she also has several aliases with a long criminal record of petty financial crimes.
