Taylor married his third wife, Lynette Gordon, in July 2007, but they were feuding months before the nuptials. Police responded to a domestic disturbance at Taylor’s home in Pembroke Pines, Fla., on April 7, 2007. The couple told police they were just arguing.

On the allegations against Taylor: “I have no idea what he was doing with a teenager. We’re talking about reports, not what we know as facts. I don’t know if he was with a teenager. Lawrence is 51 years old. Why would a teenage girl be soliciting sex from a 51-year-old man?

Taylor’s attorney Arthur Aidala said Thursday, “Lawrence Taylor didn’t have consensual sex with anyone last night. He didn’t have sex with anyone. Mr. Taylor is going to fight each and every one of these charges.” Taylor has yet to enter an official plea in the case.

Ramapo Police Chief Peter Brower would not comment today on whether Taylor knew the age of the 16-year-old alleged victim, though he said, “Ignorance is not an excuse to an individual’s age.

Despite the fact that Taylor, through his attorney, claimed today that he “didn’t have sex with anyone” on the night in question, forensic evidence gathered by Ramapo police at the hotel room where the alleged victim met Taylor may suggest otherwise. Read more…

The girl got beaten up at the hotel, authorities said, and later needed treatment at a hospital.

“She was a runaway since March and there was a pimp involved,” St. Lawrence said. “She got punched in the face. We’re not sure who did it.”

The police got involved after the girl texted her uncle as the pimp drove her down to the Bronx, St. Lawrence said. The uncle called the New York City Police Department and officers met the pimp’s car in the city, St. Lawrence said.

The police took statements from the girl, arrested the pimp and called the Ramapo Police Department, who sent officers to the hotel to investigate.

The third degree rape charge against Taylor is Class E Felony. If convicted of the violent crime charge, he could face a minimum of three years in prison and a max of four years.
