    Default Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape

    Former Giants great Lawrence Taylor was under arrest Thursday in upstate New York in connection with a reported rape, according to WABC-TV.

    Taylor was accused of raping someone at the Holiday Inn Holidome in Suffern, N.Y., WCBS reported.

    Details about the alleged incident were scarce, and the chief of police in the town of Ramapo declined to confirm the report.

    Cops said more information would be provided at a 3 p.m. press conference.

    Taylor, 51, played for the Giants from 1981 to 1993 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999.
    He also competed last year in ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

    The former Giants linebacker had a minor run-in with the law last November when he was arrested for leaving the scene of a traffic accident outside Miami.

    Taylor has also been arrested several times on drug charges since hanging up his cleats in 1993, but has reportedly been living clean and sober since 1998.

    Cops Find Condom in LT Investigation

    Originally posted 33 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

    0506_lawrence_taylor_EXD_Getty_03TMZ has learned investigators recovered a condom from the Holiday Inn hotel room where NFL legend Lawrence Taylor allegedly raped an underage girl early this morning.

    According to the Town of Ramapo supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence, investigators found LT asleep inside the room when they first arrived to the hotel.

    We're told cops recovered a condom as well as other physical evidence when they took LT into custody. Cops tell us they found NO DRUGS or paraphernalia at the scene.

    As for the accuser, cops confirm that she's 16 years old ... and that she was reported as a "runaway" from the Bronx back in March.

    Cops also confirm that the accuser was under the control of a pimp, who was arrested by the NYPD when he -- along with the accuser and a third person -- returned to the city today.

    Cops say the accuser had a "nasty" black eye that appeared to be "fresh" -- though it's unclear who attacked her.

    LT's Wife -- My Husband Has Been 'Set Up'

    Originally posted 18 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

    0506_lawrence_taylor_EX_Getty_02Lawrence Taylor's wife is standing by her man while he faces allegations of rape -- telling TMZ she believes the entire incident is one big "setup."

    TMZ just spoke with Lynette Taylor -- LT's 3rd wife -- who tells us the allegations are "all bullsh*t."

    As for why she suspects a setup, Lynette claims that the timing of the arrest is suspicious because it came just days after LT was featured on an A&E documentary called "Fame and Recovery" which she believes "made him out to be a monster."

    Lynette wouldn't expand on who she thought could be behind such a plot, but she was adamant that the timing of the show and the arrest were no coincidence

    Its says she in under control of a pimp....The pimp probably blacked her eye because she didn't get his money hence the rape charges. Thats just a theory...you never know.

    This will be just yet another incident (and it sure as heck isn't going to be the last) that proves that NFL fan loyalty is bulletproof no matter how much this kind of stuff occurs. A few incidents like this in the NBA happens and it's "I can't watch these thugs anymore. I've had it."

    Yet this kind of "thuggery" occurs with the NFL almost on a routine basis and it slides right off of peoples' shoulders. They'll be watching, betting and playing fantasy football the very next week like clockwork. That's how much people love the NFL in this country.

    While I agree with you LT is no longer in the NFL hasn't been for 15 years.

    Now if it was a current player(like Ben Roethlisberger) then yeah that would be a PR issue.

    So he picks up a prostitute, only to discover she's an underaged runaway? Is this a statutory rape case?

    In the 90's, I don't think the NBA was considered a league of thugs. It was too busy idolizing MJ. IOW, it was popular. Movies were made, shoes were sold and burgers were eaten all with MJ front and center. Even before MJ, people idolized the Detroit bad boys and respected the way they played the game. It wasn't until Rodman took bad to a stupid/freak level that people turned negative.

    2000 was the transition. Then we had Kobe and Shaq fighting like babies. Then we had rape charges against perhaps the biggest name in the game post-2000. Then we had Artest gracing the league and acting afool in front of the camera. Then we had the brawl...at the beginning of a very promising year for the Pacers...where virtually the entire starting 5 of the best team in the league (possibly) were suspended. It doesn't get more high profile in the league. Then we had another star player in Arenas with gun charges. All of this has really happened in a relatively short period of time and has involved a number of the best players in the league. Then there is the Pacer debacle where nearly everyone on the team within a 2 year span was involved in a league incident or a police incident...some of them multiple times.

    Yes, the NFL seems to get more of a pass anyway. There are several reasons for that, but the fact the NBA is viewed negatively doesn't mean it has always been that way nor does it mean it needs to be that way. The players and management of the league have caused it.

    Nutrisystem Drops Lawrence Taylor as Spokesman
    May 7, 2010 12:16 PM ET
    by Adam BryantBe the first to leave a comment.Buzz up!.
    Lawrence Taylor
    Weight loss company Nutrisystem has ended its relationship with Lawrence Taylor in light of the rape charge for the former New York Giants linebacker and Dancing with the Stars contestant.

    Lawrence Taylor pleads not guilty to rape charge

    Taylor, who became one of several celebrity spokesmen for Nutrisystem in March 2009, pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute in the third degree.

    "We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor," a Nutrisystem spokesperson told TVGuide.com in a statement. "Based on the severity of these allegations, Nutrisystem has made the decision to sever our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately."

    Taylor, 51, is accused of paying $300 to engage in sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old, Ramapo, N.Y., police Chief Peter Brower said at a news conference Thursday. Taylor's attorney, Arthur Aidala, has denied the charges and told CNN he will fight them.

    "My client did not have sex with anybody. Period," Aidala said. "Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody."

    I have seen the story, they just showed it on E a few days ago, about the two girls from Toledo who were kinapped and used as prostitutes just like what they are saying this young girl was used for. It's really sad.

    I just hope that justice is served and if LT did anything he isn't let go free.

    I just read that one of the accuser's friends has signed a sworn statement that the accuser did NOT have sex with Lawrence Taylor, and that this statement will create reasonable doubt.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Lawrence Taylor just pled guilty to two misdemeanor charges as part of one helluva plea deal in his statutory rape case -- and will get off with no jail time but will have to register as a sex offender.


    The NFL Hall of Famer was in court in Rockland County, NY ... and pled guilty to one count of patronizing a prostitute and one count of sexual misconduct -- all stemming from his arrest last May for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

    Taylor was originally charged with a felony ... and could have gotten 4 years in prison. Instead he'll get probation -- but as part of the plea deal he has to register as a sex offender.

    Taylor has homes in Florida and New Jersey.

    According to ESPN, the sex offender registration isn't even set in stone -- it will be determined sometime later this year in a seperate hearing.

    And I agree that it is disgusting that he is getting off so easy.

    Former Giants Star Taylor to Get Sex-Offender Designation

    Published March 22, 2011
    | Associated Press
    Print Email Share Comments Tweet Text Size


    May 6: Former New York Giants linebacker and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, left, and his attorney, Arthur Aidala, listen to proceedings during Taylor's arraignment at Ramapo Town Court in Suffern, N.Y. (AP)
    NEW CITY, N.Y. -- Former New York Giants football star Lawrence Taylor is about to learn the details of life as a registered sex offender.

    The 52-year-old ex-linebacker pleaded guilty in January to sexual misconduct and patronizing a 16-year-old prostitute. Under the deal, he isn't expected to get jail time -- six years' probation is likely -- but he has to register as a sex offender.

    Taylor is due in court Tuesday for formal sentencing, and the judge said he would also determine which sex-offender level to assign to Taylor.

    Sex offenders are labeled Level 1, 2 or 3 for low, medium or high risk. A state spokesman says the most obvious difference is that Level 1 offenders do not have their names and photos posted on a public Internet site.

    Come on people, it's not like the man is a pedophile. He didn't go and seek out someone he knew was under-age to have sex with them.

    My understanding is he picked up a prostitute who happened to be under-age. Could have happened to anyone.
