According to federal prosecutors, disgraced NFL great Lawrence Taylor admitted paying for sex at a suburban Holiday Inn where police say he raped a 16-year-old runaway.
Friday, in a criminal complaint against the girl’s alleged pimp, authorities claim the Pro Football Hall of Famer told police following his arrest on Thursday that he had taken a car service from Newark International Airport to the hotel north of New York City to meet the girl, listed as “Victim-1” in court documents.
Taylor told investigators that after “engaging in sex acts” with the victim, he paid her $300 in cash. The alleged pimp charged in the complaint, Rasheed Davis, had told the Giants legend that the girl was 19, the court papers say.
Taylor, 51, was charged Thursday in Suffern, N.Y. with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute. His lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has denied the charges.
The teenage hooker allegedly raped by Taylor in the sleazy Rockland County hotel room revealed to the NYPost how her alleged pimp beat her and brutally forced her to have sex with the Giants great after she initially refused.
“I told him I wasn’t going to the hotel, and he [Davis] said, ‘You’re f- – -ing this up, it’s $300!'”
The frightened Bronx girl, 16, said Rasheed Davis, 36, screamed at and beat her early Thursday and she sent text messages to her uncle begging for help:
“He hit me in the face, so I covered my face,” said the girl.
She crouched down on the ground to avoid Davis’ blows, but “[he] started kicking and stomping on me,” the girl said.
Davis then dragged her to the Holiday Inn to meet with the Hall of Fame linebacker, barking instructions at her along the way, she recalled.
“He told me to tell him my name is Carmen and I’m 19 years old,” she said. “He told me repeatedly and I had to repeat it back to him.”
When she arrived at hotel in Suffern, “the lights were off and [Taylor] didn’t see my face was bruised,” the girl recounted. “Lawrence asked me my age and I told him I was 19.”
She said she feared for her life if she didn’t have sex with Taylor.
“If I didn’t go through with it, [Taylor] would’ve called Rasheed and there would have been consequences,” she said. “God knows what would’ve happened if I didn’t go through with it.”
On the drive back to The Bronx, the girl frantically text-messaged her uncle about the alleged assault and prostitution.
“Tio [the uncle] help me,” she hurriedly typed out while still in the alleged clutches of Davis, according to a copy of the text shown exclusively to The Post. “I don’t want to live like this.”
After getting the message, her uncle called 911 and cops were waiting at Davis’ home to arrest him.
The uncle said the girl is now in foster care, and her biological father is seeking custody. (Read more)
This all reeks of a set up, and unfortunately LT is caught in the middle.
