Former Giants Linebacker Lawrence Taylor Indicted on Rape Charges

Former Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor was indicted Wednesday on charges of rape, patronizing a prostitute and endangering the welfare of a child. The charges stem from an incident in May when Taylor allegedly paid $300 ito engage in sexual acts with a 16-year-old girl.

Lawrence Taylor was arrested in a New York hotel on May 6 after he allegedly had sexual relations with a teenage prostitute. The girl told police she had been threatened and assaulted by a pimp who forced her to be with Taylor for $300 in cash.

Taylor denies he had sex with the girl and claims he only touched himself while the girl watched. The unidentified girl, however, told The NY Daily News the two did have sex. “If he’s saying we didn’t, that’s not true,” she said.

If convicted on all charges, Lawrence Taylor could face up to four years in jail.
