Son of NFL Legend Lawrence Taylor Arrested for Rape, Molestation


Well this is disgusting.

As you’ll all recall, back in 2010 former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor was arrested for statutory rape, though, he only got probation as he plead guilty to multiple misdemeanors. Now his son, Lawrence Taylor Jr. is facing a similar scenario.

According to TMZ Sports, Taylor Jr. was arrested in Atlanta on a variety of charges which include aggravated sodomy:

The son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape in Georgia … TMZ has learned.

According to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office … Lawrence Taylor Jr.was arrested on July 7 on 3 counts — statutory rape (felony), aggravated child molestation (felony), and statutory aggravated sodomy (felony).  The details surrounding the arrest are unclear.

TMZ has an update on the situation which involves another minor, so needless to say the situation is looking relatively poor for Taylor Jr.

As always, all parties are innocent until proven guilty but the accusations are certainly damaging.
