LT Accused Of Raping 15 Yr Old Girl

Thu May 06, 2010 3:51 pm

I used to like this guy despite his twisted sort of weird personality. But this is disgusting.

Journal News seems to have more details than most. Pretty sick if true:

Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was arrested in a Rockland hotel overnight and is facing a felony rape charge involving an attack on a 15-year-old girl who apparently was a runaway from New York City controlled by a pimp, authorities said this morning.

The 51-year-old former New York Giants linebacker was taken into custody by Ramapo police at the Holiday Inn off Airmont Road, Ramapo Police Detective Lt. Brad Weidel said.

Taylor was being held in the town police lockup pending arraignment in Ramapo Justice Court this afternoon. One of the charges being considered is third-degree rape, a charge that involves having intercourse with a minor.

The victim was reportedly beaten during the attack.

He probably weighs over 300 lbs; not that it matters He still should go to jail for a LONG time, IF true.

More information comes out

1) The girl was 16, not 15.

2) The girl says her pimp brought her to LT's hotel room against her wishes.

3) The bruises and cuts on her face happened before she got to LT's room, not in the room

So LT calls for a hooker. One and her pimp show up. She does her thing and leaves. The police arrive a few hours later and arrest him for rape of a minor.

As the police chief says

Quote:
Brower would not comment on whether Taylor knew the girl's age but added, "Ignorance is not an excuse to an individual's age."

Also

Quote:
Rasheed Davis, a 36-year-old parolee, was arrested in the case on charges of unlawful imprisonment, assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

Now I am sure these are not the final version of the 'facts' but it is a lot more complicated than the original reported crime.

good grief what a load of crap, it's not like you ask to see your hookers ID card before you bang her.

It'd probably be fake even if she did...

Apparently Rasheed Davis told LT the girl was 19 when she was really 16.   

Fair use:

Quote:
Taylor told investigators that after "engaging in sex acts" with the victim, he paid her $300 in cash, the complaint says. The man charged in the complaint, Rasheed Davis, had told the Giants legend that the girl was 19, the court papers say.

Ugh. This story has such a high "ick" factor. I just hope it isn't true. LT had seemingly successfully turned his life around. But if this is true, it's sad to see what happens to an admittedly addictive personality once the cameras are off.

But if it is true that he had sex with this girl, and if it is true that she was 16, he's done. It doesn't matter whether he knew that the girl was underage. It doesn't matter whether the girl lied to him about her age. Nor does it matter whether she looked her age at all. All that matters is what her age is.

Statutory rape is a strict liability offense, meaning if it's true, you're guilty. There is utterly no mitigating excuse that will lighten the sentence.

If you choose to 'bang' prostitutes, particularly young ones controlled by some bastard pimp, you choose to play with legal fire and deserve all you get when things go wrong. Taking advantage of a young woman who is beaten and sexually exploited by a controlling pimp is not much different from rape. Sick.

That is why prostitution is better legalised. Pimps are removed from the equation, and to be employed by a brothel they have to be 18 by law. There are self employed girls of course but they aren't found on the streets with pimps

Doesn't help the problem that the girl was 16.

I doubt they would get along, LT's girls are obviously too old for Polanski.

Innocent until proven guilty. It looks like Taylor is denying having intercourse with her.

Brothel = Pimp. At the very least, they should have trade unions like in Germany.

My next door neighbor girl is 15. Saturday her grandmother told me she hooked up with an older man on the internet who met her and took her to a hotel where he "raped" her.
I doubt anything was forced the way she carries on with her boyfriend and the girl stands almost 6' tall and weighs at least 280 lbs but that man will be going away for awhile.

Nutrisystems has already stated they have dropped his ads.......

"The weight-loss company NutriSystem Inc. said Friday it had dropped Taylor as a spokesman because of his arrest."

I think the prosecutors are aiming for 3rd-degree rape...

"Taylor, 51, was charged Thursday in Suffern, N.Y. with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute. His lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has denied the charges."

Such a shame...I remember growing up watching him along with Mike Singletary, etc. as the best defensive players in the league.....
