Lawyer says woman will back L.T.'s account

Attorneys for Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor are continuing to make a public case that he’s innocent of rape charges, saying Friday that a woman has come forward to bolster Taylor’s case that he didn’t have sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The Associated Press reports that Taylor’s lawyer, Arthur Aidala, says a woman told defense investigators that she accompanied the girl to a Holiday Inn north of New York City, and that the girl returned to the car after a meeting with Taylor saying she didn’t have sex with him.

It’s not clear who the woman is, although she is presumably the same woman who told a similar story to the New York Daily News.

According to the woman, the 16-year-old got $300 cash from Taylor. So far, there hasn’t been any explanation for why Taylor would meet with a 16-year-old girl in a hotel room and give her $300 cash. There also hasn’t been any explanation for why this 23-year-old woman accompanied the 16-year-old girl to the hotel where she met with Taylor.
Or why she waited a week to speak up when she had important information about a rape case.

Taylor is charged with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute.

    because crackheads and pimps will do anything for a few bucks

    does that include falsely accusing a celebrity of rape in order to get a huge settlement!?

  3. Big Ben says evidently $300 doesn’t get you the same stuff in NY that it does in GA. aint that a peach

  4. I think she is acting on her conscience and not, you know, on a significant payment from LT. Good for her.

  5. Sounds like a whole lot of BS to me, and his wife is an idiot who is willing to back him up all the way.

  6. Some one is gonna get paid. I think the uncle had it right. Get the media and police involved and get paid.

    Hey Jaydub ?
    Do you think you are ready to move on with your life (or lack thereof)?
    At least dig at the Steelers on the right thread. What a tard …….

  8. She could be an accomplice in the kidnapping charges brought against the pimp. That doesn’t make her credible, though. And it doesn’t explain why she is now coming forward. And there is no reason why she would have been in the car if she wasn’t an accomplice.
    But the biggest problem with this defense is that LT did not tell the police this when they talked to him. If he didn’t have sex with her you would think he would have told them that.
    This shows what a moron LT’s lawyer is as well. He should have shut the eff up rather than go on shows and say one thing and then not answer any follow up questions. If LT just yanked it, why not say it then. It’s very hard to believe.

  9. because it isnt safe for prossy’s to go to a hotel room alone; im assuming she is a practicing escort as opposed to a street walker. there is that added layer of safety for the chaperone to accompany the “worker” so the person gets paid and doesnt get murdered.
    or in this case can coax a 16y.o. into telling her john she is 19 and that its ok to lose her youth for 25% cut.
    p.s. vikings suck

  10. LT was obligated to pay her $300 anyway. That was the prearranged deal according to her pimp. LT couldn’t welsh on the deal that was setup by a friend of his. So maybe he felt sorry for her as they got started and he just took care of his business. I am betting charges are dropped. I don’t think he is even guilty of solicitation …

  11. This is not even worth responding to unless the witness is not only a Nun she must be the Mother Superior also.

  12. If every palm pilot that steered themselves to a Teen Nymph Something or Other website would be prosecuted for intent the State of Arkansas would have to converted to a prison to hold them all. Some would say living in Arkansas is akin to prison, a change in status a mere formality.
    Cherish you internet anonymity and that you can’t afford to wack off to the real thing. I love a good morality play, don’t you?

  13. Hey Iceberg, truth is you have no idea what LT told police, none at all!
    Also the $300 may have been owed in some way. But the facts are so gray about this case so far.

  14. “because it isnt safe for prossy’s to go to a hotel room alone; im assuming she is a practicing escort as opposed to a street walker. there is that added layer of safety for the chaperone to accompany the “worker” so the person gets paid and doesnt get murdered.

    sounds like this is old hat to you, cheesehead.
    “But the biggest problem with this defense is that LT did not tell the police this when they talked to him. If he didn’t have sex with her you would think he would have told them that.”
    Pretty sure that it was just LT and this hooker in the hotel room… a textbook he said she said thing. Don’t think he knew/cared who gave her a ride home after or if her mommie was picking her up, imbecile.
    They sure are out tonight, eh?

  15. biff henderson- it could be the beer but i have no idea what the hell you are talking about. all i know is i’ve lived in ar all my life and i don’t feel like a prisoner in any way, but enjoy your stupidity play all you wish.

  16. Ronie Lott is the best defender in the history of the NFL. Why all this hoopla about a many time loser? Because the East coast thinks he was somebody. He had a couple of good plays. Lott was better. Period, end of story.

  17. I like how on cops they send a female dressed up as a whore onto the streets…wait for some bozo to pick her up, and 7 officers arrest the guy. Then they all crow about “nabbing another!”. Meanwhile, in that same neighborhood someone is robbing a house blind and laughing all the way because all the cops are tied up busting a guy who really isn’t hurting anybody.

  18. Let’s see
    LT says he paid $300 for sex
    16yr old said she was paid $300 for sex and panicked by txting her Uncle which brought all this down.
    I believe the girl and LT…What does the DNA say?

  19. Sometimes a man just needs someone to talk to and who better than a 16 year old prostitute? Yeah she’s just a harlot but she has a heart of gold and real insight and advice for a 50 year old black man. Don’t knock it peeps!

  20. I can sympathize with Taylor.
    I once paid $16 to a junkie who looked like she was 300 years old. I didn’t want to have sex with her either.

  21. muhangis, I do have an idea based on what the prosecution has said. Obviously, I wasn’t there and I don’t have a verbatim quote so I absolutely am speculating. But it is informed speculation.
    According to the SF Gate: “Taylor told investigators that after ‘engaging in sex acts’ with the victim, he paid her $300 in cash, the complaint says.”

    Obviously, more details will come out. But at this point it certainly appears that the police will say LT made a damaging admission.

  22. Maybe LT was just buying her rare Cabbage Patch doll and this whole thing is a misunderstanding. I mean, there are a million reasons why a guy would meet a 16-year-old girl in a hotel room and pay her $300, right? Right?

  23. When LT inferred that he the Giants should play like a bunch of “crazed dogs,” does this surprise you?
    Crazed Dogs act first, think later, if at all.
