NFL News: Grand Jury Indicts Lawrence Taylor On Rape Charges

The indictment follows his May 6 arrest at a Holiday Inn in Ramapo, N.Y., where prosecutors say he paid a 16-year-old girl $300 to have sex with him.

The former New York Giants linebacker also was indicted on charges of endangering the welfare of a child, and sexual abuse and criminal sexual act in the third degree. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted. He has denied the charges.

Taylor’s defense team didn’t present any evidence to the grand jury. The defense has Taylor’s testimony and the testimony of a woman who claimed to be with the girl before and after the alleged event. Including a report of the girl walking back to the car afterwards saying “It was weird, we didn’t even have sex.”
