Pro football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was indicted on Wednesday on six charges, including rape, criminal sexual conduct and sexual abuse by a Rockland County, N.Y., grand jury.
Although Taylor has denied the rape charges — it seems like the former New York Giants legend simply cannot stay out of trouble. On May 6, Taylor was arrested at a Holiday Inn in Ramapo, N.Y., for allegedly paying a 16-year-old prostitute $300 to have sex with him.
District Attorney Thomas Zugibe said the 16-year-old told investigators that she had been physically assaulted and threatened by a pimp. The pimp delivered her to the hotel where Taylor was waiting.
“One of the most effective ways to target prostitution is to go after the johns,” Zugibe said. “This indictment underscores our serious commitment to prosecuting those defendants who create a market for the region’s growing sex trade.”
