Not really a surprise, but it was the next step in the legal process.
Taylor’s arraignment Tuesday morning and plead not guilty through his lawyer in a Rockland County courthouse. He is charged with third-degree rape, child endangerment, and patronizing a prostitute.
Taylor allegedly paid the girl $300 for their May 6 encounter in a hotel room in suburban Montebello. According to the court papers, the girls pimp said Taylor admitted to sex acts with the girl but was told the girl was 19. Taylor denies having sex with the girl and reportedly has a witness who was in the car with the girl when she came back from the meeting when the girl reportedly said “It was weird…we didn’t even have sex.”
Taylor was allowed to leave on $75,000 bail.
