NEW YORK -- Pro football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has been indicted by a suburban New York grand jury on charges of rape, criminal sexual act and sexual abuse.
The indictment Wednesday comes after his May 6 arrest at a
Holiday Inn. Prosecutors say he paid a 16-year-old girl $300 to
have sex with him.
The former New York Giant was also indicted on charges of
endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute.
Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe (ZOO'-gih-bee)
says the 16-year-old told investigators that she had been verbally
threatened and physically assaulted. She said she was brought to
the hotel room by a pimp later arrested by New York City police.
Taylor has denied the charges. His attorney did not respond to
calls seeking comment.
