LT Alleged Victim: 'Told to Say She's 19'

5/7/2010 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawrence Taylor Alleged Victim: 'Told to Say She's 19'The 16-year-old girl who allegedly had sex with Lawrence Taylor for $300 told cops that her pimp instructed her to tell the NFL great she was 19 years old, this according to federal documents obtained by TMZ.

The FBI is now investigating alleged pimp Rasheed Davis -- on suspicion of human sex trafficking ... a federal violation.

According to the federal criminal complaint, an FBI agent assigned to the case claims Davis had "caused" the 16-year-old to "engage in multiple commercial sex acts with various individuals" ... and even "set the prices."

The FBI agent also claims that Davis had taken several "almost nude" photographs of the girl on his cell phone in order to obtain customers.

In the docs, the FBI agent claims Davis had sent the girl text messages instructing her to have sex with a client (Lawrence Taylor) on May 5th -- but the girl refused.

So, according to the agent, Davis physically assaulted her "in an effort to coerce [the victim] into participating in a commercial sex act."

According to the agent, Davis then instructed the victim to tell Lawrence Taylor that she was 19 and charge him $300 for sex.

After the alleged encounter, the agent says the victim contacted a relative via text message to ask for help.

When police caught up with Rasheed Davis on May 6, they claim they found $300 in his car.

According to the docs, Davis admitted to police that he had received money from pimpin' out the alleged victim to Lawrence Taylor ... among other people.

LT -- through his lawyer -- has denied any wrongdoing in the case. He's been charged with statutory rape and patronizing a prostitute.

BBBAAARRRFFFFF, I hope anyone who does this goes to jail and suffers for the rest of thier lives, Gross ****ing pigs, the pimp should be executed, period.. These disgusting people....... Lawrence whatever the **** his gross name is should have to pay for this for the rest of his life,,,, Yuck it makes me sick to see thesemen with $$ abuse women like they do. Sleeping with underage hookers should result in some serious penalties..... too bad men set the laws....I would give them life....they would never touch a 16 year old again, ever.

if she wanted to cash in she wouldnt admit she told him she was 19...it doesnt matter tho as an adult...its yer responsibility to make sure...and if you dont know them well enough to know for sure...yeah you better ask for id.



child sexual slavery is not ok...and neither is the sexual slavery of adult women or men. Most people who have a pimp ...are trapped and getting out is not easy. At minimun he needs to explain how she got in his room if he was doing nothing wrong. human beings should not be comodities that can be purchased.



to the people asking WHY she didnt get help sooner...shes a runaway...so she is scared...that alone means she is in serious trouble....do you call parents your hiding from? no you dont. shes a child and she is in over her head...no child should have to fend off pimps. She was beat into compliance so she is certianly not some lil tart looking to cash in. its fortunate she reached out to her uncle...most in her shoes would not. children DO NOT have the mental and emotional maturity to handle a pimp...hell many adults get trapped. Not to mention he put the child at risk for STDS and his wife at risk for STD and dont tell me men in the market dont know minors get put out on the track...he didnt rent a woman who was 50...40....or even 30...19 is still a freeking child. no 19 year old should be pimped. anyway you slice it the man is an *******.

Missy is exactly right. Unless a guy's wife/gf is always putting out the guy is eventually going to get some on the side. With todays busy schedules, kids, etc. LT was probably not getting it at home or not frequently enough. Is it right? No, but it is reality and people need to get over it. There is a reason prostitution is the oldest profession. Now having sex with an underage girl is a BIG problem. But again if she lied and said she was of age then he should only be guilty of solicitation. I'm sure being a runaway and living with a pimp has aged her where it was totally believable. Bottom line is LT is guilty of solicitation and should be charged with it but rape? No way. Oh and by the way I dislike LT but I'm being objective.

Kinda sounds like "I didn't know the gun was loaded". Hence why 1. You don't have sex with someone you don't know and 2. Pay someone for sex you don't know. Ignorance will not exempt him from the law.

Morally, yes he may not be guilty of rape...but with that being said. LT isn’t being charged with "rape". The charges as I understand them are soliciting a prostitute for sex and "statutory rape" of a minor who is too young to legally give consent. Even if she did not disclose her true age to LT and he had no knowledge of her actual age it doesn’t matter in a statutory rape charge....simply put if he had sex with her then he committed that act period end of story. The smart thing would have been not to patronize a prostitute but had he actually asked to see her ID...them maybe we wouldn’t be talking about this today. And yes I also believe we’ve witnessed the ole"double standard" in play...comparing Big Ben arrest to LT's......Sad but true!

I do not understand why the accuser had a cell phone if she was being held against her will by this pimp. Something is fishy.

Really because his lawyer showed up on the today show to do damage control it must be so..Yea right what is he gonna say he is a defense attorney he knows the game.LT admitted to having sex with her and paid $300 recovered from the pimps car that night.the lawyer will try to say l.T didn't have his Meranda rights read to him or that he didn't understand he was under arrest or some crap like that but you will see the jizz is in the bag.

Attention Mr. Lawrence Taylor: Fire your lawyer! Please call the jewish lawyers that represented the Duke Lacrosse team, Ben Reothlisberger and all those catholic priest that have been raping little boys. If that doesnt work...find that man that got Rush Limbaugh off from Dr. shopping. Trust me!

From what some of you legal experts are saying; even if she told him she was 19 he will still be charged with statutory rape? I find that harsh. But it was incredibly stupid for him to sleep with that prostitute he should have known better. But he should only be charged with soliciting prostitution.



On the other hand I have a question. If you ask a girl for id and she shows you a fake id and it said 19 would the man still be at fault if the girl turned out to be 16 in the state of NY?

Legally, lying about her age is irrelevant. Utterly, completely, irrelevant. It is an issue of strict liability. the law puts the burden, entirely, on the adult. it is statutory rape if they lie, produce a fake I.D. and even look 18 or older.



Hey lying is not a defense. I've litigated any number of these in various jurisdictions. The only issue in statutory rape is age.

74. I don't understand why some men like to pay to have sex.Prostitution is a dirty business where often the woman is a victim of human trafficking.Men who like to pay prostitutes for their services are as guilty as the pimps out there.So Lawrence Taylor is as guilty as the underage girl's pimp.

I agree 100% Also i wanna note that it drives me crazy when you hear men calling those prostitues WHORES and treating them lower than dirt. After the fact they just got all up inside! What makes them think that they are so much better than the prostitute? Both parties are totally pitiful. I honestly just have a lot of anger towards useless pricks these days...Men make me sick
