Police confirm that Lawrence Taylor faces third-degree rape charges

As expected, authorities announced earlier in the hour that Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor faces third-degree rape charges in New York after allegedly having sex with a 16-year-old girl.  The charge is a felony, and it carries a maximum term of four years.

Ignorance, as police pointed out, is not a defense.

He also was charged with third-degree patronizing of a prostitute, a misdemeanor.  Taylor allegedly paid her $300. 

The alleged victim was reported to be missing by her family in March 2010. 

Authorities said that no drugs were found in the hotel room where the alleged encounter occurred.  A bottle of alcohol was found there.

Regarding a report that the girl has a mark on her face suggesting that she had been assaulted, police have stated that the injury was inflicted before her encounter with Taylor.  After the encounter, a man named Rasheed Davis returned the girl to New York City.

Taylor currently remains in custody and he will be arraigned soon.

    Florio, a quick journalism lesson:
    Saying alleged or allegedly doesn’t save you from libel, FYI. If you’re worried about it, cite the source each time you say a potentially libelous statement.

    More bad first reports in the press, so she is 16 not “under 15″ just like WHEN THEY SAID “suspect in the video was a white man” after the Times Square bomb attempt.
    And she also was a prostitute obviously plying this trade since SOMETIME in March? And he didn’t ask this prostitute for PROOF of age? Is that his crime?
    But Eliot Spitzer never went to jail for his meetings with prostitutes, in fact he’s a big star on the Bill Maher show on HBO and on other TV broadcasts. Did Spitzer always ask his “ladies” to show him their ID?

    Four years in prison for sex with a SIXTEEN year old girl? Is this a joke? Most civilized places have the age of consent at 16. This is ridiculous.
    And while I’m at it, it’s also ridiculous for prostitution to be illegal. Street walking and pimping okay that’s one thing, but if two consenting adults want to exchange money for sex, where does the government get involved?
    This situation is a little different because it seems like she was probably being made to do this against her will, and was clearly being abused, but none the less, putting someone in prison for having sex with a 16 year old and because they exchanged money for it, is lubricious.

  17. NYMets says: May 6, 2010 3:57 PM

    Across the street from the Courthouse where Larry will be tried up in New City is the Asian Spa. All the girls they traffic in there are of age. And you get a free bowl of soup with every happy ending.

    I hate the term rape in this instance. Statutory rape should be called something completely different because rape should hold a special meaning.
    If his only crimes are the prostitution thing and having sex with a 16 year old, then he did it in the wrong state, because 16 is legal in my state and the majority of states.
    If it’s rape, “Ben, she said no” type of rape, then that is a different crime all together, but if he didn’t rape her, then that part of it is the wrong place at the wrong time.

  28. Hap says: May 6, 2010 4:05 PM

    How was he supposed to know how old she is ? I agree he should not have been in that position, but did she represent herself as being of age, or just what all did happen?
    No excuse, he patronized but did the pimp tell him she was of age ? I can’t believe he was that stupid.

  29. GirthyOne says: May 6, 2010 4:08 PM

    Let me get this straight…
    This 16 year old girl shows up to LT’s door with a jacked up face from an earlier incident, but that didn’t cause LT to stop for a second to consider whether or not what he was doing was okay?
    I wish there was a law governing stupidity.

    I saw L.T. up on stage at the 2010 draft. I couldn’t believe he was to be a part of a photograph with the likes of class acts such as Marino, Montana, Rice, Sanders, etc, etc… He’s been in and out of trouble for years and the NFL still rewards him. Why not include the likes of O.J. while you’re at it Goodell!!

    Only if the adult is up to a certain age. In most states the oldest the adult can be is around 23 years old. I’m pretty sure that LT would be committing statutory rape in almost all 50 states.

    Meat is right, a guy forcing himself on a woman against her will is a much different ‘rape’ than two people agreeing to have sex but in a state that for whatever reason has a higher age of consent than most others. Also, what are the odds she was honest with him about her age, doubtful she would have risked $300 by telling her actual age if asked.
    Put the pimp in jail since I’m sure he was doing plenty wrong, but up to 4 years for LT seems very harsh for what he did.

    “DaveK says:

    LT goes from HOF Giant, to Giant pedophile.”
    Pedophiles are people who are attracted to pre-pubescent children with a significant age gap (6 years I think).
    Having sex with a 16 year old doesn’t make one a pedophile. It makes one creepy, perverted, and a statutory rapist. But not a pedophile.
    “Meat Tuperello says:

    Rape is having sex with someone in the absence of consent. It’s basically the same situation as Ben’s….sexual activity without consent (in one case alcohol renders the victim unable to legally consent, in the other, age renders the victim unable to legally consent). Two sides of the same coin.

So, while Florio can’t say “LT punched me” because he knows thats false, he can say “LT wants to punch me” because it is possible (and at this point probable) that LT could want to punch the face of our own Mike Florio.

    LT police Statement:
    “Pay attention, here’s the thick of the plot
    I pulled up to the corner at the end of my block
    That’s when I saw this beautiful girlie girl walking
    I picked up my car phone to perpetrate like I was talking
    You should’ve seen this girl’s bodily dimensions
    I honked my horn just to get her attention
    She said, “Was that for me?”
    I said, “Yeah”
    She said, “Why?”
    I said, “Come on and take a ride with a helluva guy”
    She said, “How do I know you’re not sick?
    You could be some deranged lunatic”
    I said, “C’mon toots – my name is the Prince =
    Beside, would a lunatic have a Porsche like this?”
    She agreed and we were on our way
    She was looking very good and so was I, I must say – word
    We hit McDonald’s, pulled into the drive
    We ordered two Big Macs and two large fries with Cokes
    She kicked her shoes off onto the floor
    She said, “Drive fast, speed turns me on”
    She put her hand on my knee, I put my foot on the gas
    We almost got whiplash, I took off so fast
    The sun roof was open , the music was high
    And this girl’s hand was steadily moving up my thigh
    She had opened up three buttons on her shirt so far
    I guess that’s why I didn’t notice that police car
    We’re doing ninety in my Mom’s new Porsche
    And to make this long story short – short
    When the cop pulled me over I was scared as hell
    I said, “I don’t have a license but I drive very well, officer”
    I almost had a heart attack that day
    Come to find out the girl was a twelve-year-old runaway
    I was arrested, the car was impounded
    There was no way for me to avoid being grounded”

    (1) I’m not sticking up for Roethlisberger here in the slightest, but in all honesty, how are you going to compare these two situations? Having sex with (a) a 16-year-old (b) prostitute is an offense, even if you take away one or the other. Roethlisberger is a skeezy-ass guy without doubt, but getting accused and then not charged with something is slightly different from getting busted having sex with a 10th grader. Think about it, folks – there are 16-year-olds who look like they could be in 6th or 7th grade. Even if you somehow justify that as being not wrong, any normal adult would consider the thought of it revolting.
    (2) How is it that almost nobody above commented on this –> “The alleged victim was reported to be missing by her family in March 2010.” To everyone sticking up for LT here or arguing about the charge, question for ya: how would you feel if your 16-year-old daughter who’d been missing for two months was just found getting pawned off to some 51-year-old? Oh wait – it probably wouldn’t bother you at all, because 51-year-olds having sex with 10th graders is okay in your book. Awesome.

    Please guys stop using the word PEDOPHILE when you have no idea what it means…. a pedophile is some1 attracted to a pre-pubescent child….. a teenager (especially these days) is anything but that.
    Our society and country are based on sex. ALL entertainment for teenagers is based on SEX. ALL the music they listen to = sex. TV shows = sex. Movies = sex. Magazines = sex. I mean lets face it how many people really gave a crap about Tiger Woods before we found out he banged all those women? Now EVERYBODY wants to see him p;ay the most boring sport ever created… why? well gee let me guess…. SEX!
    SO no LT is NOT a pedophile, he just made a stupid choice and he might have to pay the consequences. And IF he is convicted (thats a big if) he might have to register as a sex offender in new york state but i guarantee he will be a low risk level 1 offender as to where you cant even see his face on the internet. You know when some1 is a pedophile when they get the words SEXUAL PREDATOR attached to their sex offender status.

    Well, since large portions of the country aren’t apparently bothered by anyone having sex with 16 year olds I still don’t see what the problem is.

  88. laura says: May 6, 2010 6:54 PM

    Why does everyone seem be assuming that he is guilty of anything, let alone rape? We’re supposed to take the word of a clearly troubled 16 year old runaway and prostitute and her pimp?? I think we all need to slow down a minute and wait for the truth to come out. This guy has worked hard to turn himself around…..even if he did hire a prostitute there aren’t many men in his position who haven’t done the same. This ‘young lady’ and her pimp seem to be a couple of opportunistic scavengers.

  89. GoBrowns19 says: May 6, 2010 6:58 PM

    Alright, in the grand scheme of things, does a guy deserve to go to prison for 4 years for that? 16 year old girls these days look and act like 20 something year olds…I realize LT is no saint to begin with, but that’s a mistake anyone could make. Not that he shouldn’t spend a couple weeks in jail to teach him a lesson, but 4 years? Who got hurt here? The girl is obviously already gone.

    He should say Jesus told him to do it and he’d get off.

    (1) I’m not sticking up for Roethlisberger here in the slightest, but in all honesty, how are you going to compare these two situations? Having sex with (a) a 16-year-old (b) prostitute is an offense, even if you take away one or the other. Roethlisberger is a skeezy-ass guy without doubt, but getting accused and then not charged with something is slightly different from getting busted having sex with a 10th grader. Think about it, folks – there are 16-year-olds who look like they could be in 6th or 7th grade. Even if you somehow justify that as being not wrong, any normal adult would consider the thought of it revolting.”
    Roethlisberger (a) provided alcohol to a minor and then (b) had, at the very least, sexual content with someone so intoxicated they couldn’t legally provide consent. Take away either one and a crime is still committed.
    And there are also 16 year olds who look like they could be 25 (just like their are 20 year olds who look like they could be 21 when you provide them alcohol).
    The similarities are their. Sexual contact with someone who isn’t legally able to provide consent. And as someone else mentioned, in some states LT wouldn’t have committed statutory rape, while in many other states, Ben wouldn’t have walked for assaulting a drunk girl. He just happened to do it in one of the southern states that hate women only slightly less than they hate minorities.

    I love how this BlueEyedDevils racist POS can post whatever ignorant, racist comment he/she wants to.
    I bet if I start venting some skewed and racist view of blacks it would:
    A. Get censored. (Because Florio has to maintain his “neutral” stance on this issue.)
    B. If it did get posted, would cause a huge outrage out of our resident cowardly internet trolling racist trash bag.
    This time it’s pretty tame, but you are garbage and should really seek therapy for your issues. I bet your mom has told you this many times over dinner…right before the talk about how you need to get a job because you’re 40.

    Nobody in the world would be dumb enough to try that defense…..maybe Deion.

    I’m loving sitting here reading these very same sanctimonious idiots who burned Roethlisberger to the ground for an ACCUSATION defending LT with “what’s the big deal?”
    You dickwads aren’t fooling anybody.

    Theres a big difference between being an average common sense individual and then they’re are F*%#ing morons such as yourself. So just cause Ben didn’t get charged that means theyre wasn’t a crime or that he did nothing wrong? I spit on you like the dirtbag that you are!! I Feel sorry for your mother!!!

    Funny how ampats and BigBlueFag are nowhere to be found on this one. If they did chime in I’m sure they would find a way to insult the Jets. Maybe Rex was the pimp?
    You must be so proud of your G-men on a day like this. Say what you want about the “alleged” (that one’s for you Florio) lower character guys on the Jets, none of them are coke heads that rape underage girls.

    Why do so many people waste their effort saying Figures its another loser Giant, or Jet or Bengal, or Steeler…or……Boston Breaker?
    First off Taylor retired from the Giants when?
    Second name me the team that did not wish they drafted him out of college!
    Next name me the team that does not have some sort of trash player in their history. In most cases RECENT history.
    Like Gasteneou (I know I butchered his name, but the sack dance guy) Isn’t coke in his past? The Vikings have the love boat, the Steelers have Ben, The Bengals have their list, the Titans and many others have Pacman, The Cowboys have Irving and Nate, Packers have Hot tub Mark. And that is off the top of my head.
    The discussion is rape. Involving a 16 year old recent run-away who for all we know is being forced to be a prostitute. We do realize kiddies that girls run away from home with dreams of being discovered in the big city and finding fame and fortune and end up desparate and in the control of a pimp?
    Do we really think it adds any value to the discussion or shows any intelligience to comment “typical Giant”?

  100. hotchick says: May 6, 2010 9:37 PM

    So lets find out if Taylor knew her age.
    Lets find out of the girl was a willing prostitute.
    Lets find out what the mark on her face was and how big/bad it was and where it came from.
    Lets find out how old/young she looks.
    Then people can logically discuss how much of a pig Taylor is.
    We can discuss if the girl is a whore.
    The only thoughtful discussions we can have at this point are… Should there be laws that limit what age it is legal for a man to have sex with a 16 year old? What we think of men who want to have sex with such a large age difference. Should prostitution be illegal? What we think of men who frequent prostitutes.
    Everything else no one can make a solid point without obtaining more data.

    Hit Ctrl-F, then type “Buck” and read the posts I’ve made in this thread and then tell me where it is I said anything at all similar to what you just said I said.

    Can’t he just pay her off? It worked for Big Ben.
