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.
