Lawrence Taylor out on bail after rape arrest
Former Giants star Lawrence Taylor has been released on $75,000 bail after being arrested on rape charges in Rockland County.
Taylor is accused of paying to have sex with a 16-year-old girl at the Holiday Inn in Suffern. Police believe the teenager is a runaway from the Bronx who was forced into prostitution. Taylor was arrested yesterday.
The legendary linebacker's attorney denies the allegations and says Taylor will fight the charges.
"Lawrence Taylor did not rape anybody," says attorney Arthur Aidala.
Police say Rasheed Davis punched the girl in the face repeatedly, and then brought the girl to Taylor?s hotel room.
Davis now faces federal sex trafficking charges.
A grand jury is expected to hear the case against Taylor Monday.
