Lawrence Taylor at Arraignment -- I'm No Rapist

7/13/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor just plead not guilty in New York to five counts: rape, criminal sexual act, sexual abuse, endangering the welfare of a child, and patronizing a prostitute.

Outside of court, Taylor's attorney Arthur Aidala said there was't a plea deal in the works at the moment -- so the case was most likely going to trial.

Aidala also said Taylor was under "enormous pressure" and was doing "the best he can under the circumstances."071310_lt_exit_video

Kobe; Ben Roethlesburger; Michael Irvan did not rape anyone either. Once the judge see's you are a sports celebraty you will be home free. Or do like Ben did and have the police officers (oh, I mean security gaurds) destroy the evidence. Classless bastards!

I don't think he is a rapist either I think this was a setup to extort money from him. But it should be a lesson to all these married guys who can't keep their pants zippered.

@ #9..Please stop talking. People like you is why Iam ashamed to be an american. You are dumb as hell..please stop talking.

Do you know what a pedophile is? GIRLS reach full psychical maturity by 16. With exception of very minor growing. It's not "weird" for a guy in his 20's or even 30's to be sexually attracted to a 17 year old girl. You idiots need to realize what a pedophile actually is.

Pedophilia (or pedophilia) is a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 and older) for whom prepubescent children are the primary or exclusive sexual object of their sex drive.

Ok, I feel the need to actually dissect this because I have a feeling you thickos might not understand it.


prepubescent - person who has not yet reached puberty (not yet having reached puberty)

OK! Understand people? A 17 year old is by far not prepubescent.

Can any of you actually give me one good excample as to what sets apart a 17 year old from an 18 year old? Without having to use Washington and any Laws regarding being legal age to vote. Legal age to buy cigarettes and to buy porn.

Because guess what! There's not a difference.

A 17 year old looks the same as an 18 year old. A 17 year old cannot buy cigarettes. Cannot buy alcohol and cannot vote.

Oi, This country is literally getting dumber and dumber..

In the end, This girl ===>LIED<=== about her age. A pimp kicking her ass telling her to lie is completely irrelevant. If a minor is going to lie about her age..Especially a 17 year old then the guy should not have RAPE charges against him..More proof this legal system is so HORRIBLE and broken and a laughing stock. Is this girl going to get charged with underage prostitution? She should. It's not hard for a teen to realize shes in a bad situation and go to the cops..They could of set the pimp up on a sting operation..who knows.

honesty    

If there is no plea deal, they have him with great evidence, stone cold.
Add in his past criminal history.
His vast experience with pimps, according to him on taped interviews.
He had sex with an underage girl. He is old enough to know not to have sex with anyone that looks underage. He has been a "star" long enough to have been taught this lesson.
He admitted to calling a pimp and asking for a young girl.
He lied about not actually having sex with her, when a simple post rape kit(which she took) would easily show if his dna was inside or not.

Celebrities Suck    

an old man that has sex with a 16 years is a rapist. This girl was probably traffic.... The pimp that brought this girl to Lawrence Taylor is well known to be a human trafficker in New York. Look up the pimp and you'll see!!
