Ugh...here we go again with his bozo.

Some people, I swear.

Former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor was arrested for rape in New York, CBS 2 has learned.

Taylor, 51, was taken into custody by the Town of Ramapo police after being accused of raping someone in the Holiday Inn Holidome Hotel in Suffern.

Details surrounding the rape have not yet been released other than the location and that it occurred early this morning. Charges against the Hall of Fame linebacker will be filed once police complete their investigation.

A news conference is expected later Thursday afternoon where police will reveal more details.

This doesn't surprise me at all, he's been getting in trouble with the law for years. If convicted hopefully he gets a lenghty jail sentence so he can learn his lesson.

I hope he doesn't get any serious time because from the sound of out, it was consensual. Because of his past run ins with the law, its easy to jump on him and make him the bad guy. Its possible he thought he was having sex with someone of age and she just lied about it.

Which seems to be frequent nowadays and he's not the first nor the last to be on the other end of that.

As an outsider, as I do not know this guy or his background at all, I must just say that this story is sketchy at best.
> The girl is a runaway.
> He paid her for sex, which likely means it was negotiated prior to sex.
> After the rape/consensual sex, she phoned her uncle (who reported her missing in 2 months ago already).

If anything, it looks like the girl knew exactly what she was getting herself into and realised what she could gain from it (famous name = lots of money in an out of court settlement, which is fantastic for a runaway girl).

Now it may be that he is a scoundral, which I will belief based on the fact that he, a 51yo, was looking for sex with a girl her age (although he may have thought she was older). But the girl is not necessarily all that innocent.

Just saying.

And what sucks is the one being convicted of the rape, if they really had no idea, have no way of proving it.

As sketchy, or shady as I like to say, as the story is I must wonder why a 16-year old was hanging around with someone over 3 times her age?
