Lawrence Taylor, a Hall of Fame linebacker for the New York Giants from 1981 to 1993 and contestant on “Dancing With the Stars” Season 8 with Edyta Sliwinska, has been indicted by a grand jury in New York on charges of rape, criminal sexual act and sexual abuse.
]]>May 6 arrest at a New York Holiday Inn where
prosecutors say he paid $300 to have sex with a 16-year-old girl. Taylor
was also indicted on charges of endangering the
welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute.
Rockland Country District Attorney Thomas Zugibe says the girl claims
she was verbally threatened and physically assaulted. She says she was
taken to the hotel room by a pimp, who was later arrested by NYC police.
Taylor is denying the charges, claiming he didn’t know the girl was 16
years old. However, ignorance of the girl’s age is not a defense in the
eyes in the law, according to ESPN.
