Former Giants great Lawrence Taylor was indicted Wednesday for having sex with a teenage prostitute.
The Hall of Famer
was charged with rape, engaging in a criminal sexual act and sexual abuse of the Bronx
teen by a Rockland County grand jury
He was also hit with charges of endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute. Taylor was busted on May 6 at a Holiday Inn
after the 16-year-old
told cops he paid her $300
to have sex with him.
Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe
said the teen told them she'd been driven to the hotel by a Bronx pimp - and that she had been verbally threatened and physically assaulted.
Taylor has denied the charges - and has reportedly come up with a dubious defense, namely that he pleasured himself and never touched the girl.
But in an interview with The Daily News, the baby-faced teen insisted she and Taylor "definitely had intercourse."
"If he's saying we didn't, that's not true
," she said.
