Lawrence Taylor Arrest for Statutory Rape
By Now, you should have all heard about Lawrence Taylor… Ex NFL NY Giants Football Star (there has to be an easier way i could have wrote that) Anyways, this last week he was arrested on charges of statuary rape of a 16 year old run-away prostitute. The Young girl was said to be beaten and forced to provide services to Taylor prior to the encounter. She was offered $300 and they said that Taylor suspected that she was 19 years old. read the rest of the story below….
Regardless of what happened, Taylor would not have been in this mess if he had remembered that he was married. Hh by the way, his wife is sticking by his side. *sigh* i don’t know what the real story is but where there is smoke there is fire… I’ll keep you updated with more information.
Taylor, a 51-year-old former New York Giants star who has faced drug and tax evasion charges in the past, paid the girl $300 for sex in a Holiday Inn, where he was arrested early Thursday, said Christopher St. Lawrence, supervisor of the town of Ramapo.
The man who’d beaten the girl drove her to Taylor’s suburban hotel room, police said.
Ramapo Chief of Police Peter Brower said Taylor was cooperative when police woke him up around 4 a.m. Taylor was arraigned Thursday on charges of third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute.
“I’m not that important,” Taylor told a scrum of media after being released on $75,000 bail.
His attorney, Arthur Aidala, said Taylor is a “loving family man” who did not have sex with the teenager.
“My client did not have sex with anybody,” Aidala said. “Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody.”
Brower would not comment on whether Taylor knew the girl’s age; third-degree rape is a charge levied when the victim is under the age of consent, which is 17 in New York. - source
