Lawrence Taylor Arrested For Rape

He is a Hall of Fame linebacker that was poached in the draft by Bill Parcells way back when BP was the head coach.  Today, Lawrence “LT” Taylor is behind bars awaiting arraignment on charges that he raped a 15 year old runaway prostitute who was under the control of a pimp.

Charges have yet to be filed but according to a local CBS report, Taylor may have also hit the young girl which will lead to assault charges as well.  Taylor’s camp is expressing innocence in the matter and rightfully so at this stage of the investigation which is ongoing.

The incident apparently occurred early Thursday morning.  Taylor has a history of drug problems and has been arrested a couple of times stemming from that addiction.  Arrested in the 90′s both in Carolina and Florida.

Taylor was also arrested in New Jersey for possession of drug paraphernalia in 2001 and in 2000 took a 5 year probation sentence from the federal government on a tax issue.  Last November he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident in Miami.

Taylor is set for arraignment around 3:00 PM today and the arresting department has reportedly scheduled a press conference regarding it.  The official charge appears to be 3rd degree rape.

More on this as it becomes available.

    Terry. Sorry that was misses when I edited the article before I published it. It was supposed read before a paragraph regarding the pimp and whether or not this could be an extortion case. Then I read more about and found it unlikely so I deleted that paragraph but forgot about that one lune lead to it. I can’t edit the article from my phone. It will have to be later.

    This is disgusting on a lot of levels and if is found guilty the NFL should remove him from Canton

    Following in the time honored footsteps of OJ Simpson, Ray Ray Carruth, Lawrence Phillips, Plaxico Burress, Santonio Holmes…No Class, No respect, No consideration for others and having been given everything and every opportunity to improve their respective lives, opted for living crass and crude lives. And we wonder why the youth of america are rudderless.
