In addition to third-degree rape, the NFL Hall of Famer is facing the following charges: criminal sexual act, sexual abuse, endangering the welfare of a child, and patronizing a prostitute.

As we previously reported, Taylor was arrested back in May after he allegedly performed a sexual act with a 16-year-old prostitute. LT claims he never touched her sexually ... only himself.

Stay tuned.

I hope he learned a lesson from all this. You have to card your prostitutes and make sure their 18 years of age.

Another famous, rich person that believes lawyers can get them out of anything.

And btw, the prosecutors did say that LT had sex with her. They probably have the prostitute's testimony and vaginal evidence.

With his criminal history, no time to clean up before the cops arrived, and his own words, this man is toast.
It took way too long to actually charge this man with this. It is simple. He called a pimp. The pimp brought over a girl. He had sex with an underage girl(it doesn't matter what he was told, you know with a pimp you might get lied to). He knew prostitution is illegal. He has admitted to using pimps many many times before.

Bull**** charge. If a person shows fake ID that they are over the age of consent, or a date is ordered through an escort agency which claims they are over 18, its the escort agency that should be charged, not the customer. Not one porno actor who violated Tracy Lords when she was 16 got charged, just the agency. This is nonsense.

Ok, while i do not condone what he did, it's wrong to patronize a prostitute, her story keeps changing. First she ran away from home because her parents were to strict, now the family is saying they reported her missing for weeks, yet still she had a cellphone to call the uncle to come get her when she got beaten.

YEA RIGHT. HE ALSO CLAIMMED HE WAS NOT GUILTY OF SMOKING CRACK "BACK IN THE DAY". HE IS A S*** BAG, WAS A S*** BAG AND WILL ALWAYS BE A S*** BAG. HE DOES HAVE GREAT ATHLETIC ABILITY BUT IS DUMMER THAN AN EAGLES FAN.

THE NFL IS FULL OF HIS KIND, THEY JUST KEEP FLOATING TO THE SURFACE JUST LIKE A TURD.
