Report: Victim was told to tell L.T. she is 19
Federal documents, according to TMZ.com, indicate that the 16-year-old prostitute that was allegedly raped by Lawrence Taylor on Thursday was instructed by her pimp to tell the Hall of Fame linebacker she was 19 years old.
The FBI is now investigating whether ex-con Rasheed Davis is guilty of violating federal laws in his role as the girl’s pimp, and the suggestion is that he may have forced her to engage in multiple commercial sex acts.
Whether or not the girl told Taylor she was 19 or not will likely not matter in this instance. Taylor has been charged with third-degree rape, meaning the victim was underage. In cases of statutory rape, there isn’t much a defendant can cling to unless, in fact, sex didn’t occur.
Taylor’s lawyer said Thursday that his client did not commit any crimes.
