Lawrence Taylor -- Signs Autograph Before Rape Case

12/7/2010 11:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lawrence Taylor just made his way into court to deal with his ongoing statutory rape case -- but not before signing an autograph for a NY Giants fan!

Lawrence Taylor
As we previously reported, Taylor -- who was arrested back in May for allegedly performing a sex act with a 16-year-old prostitute -- pled not guilty in July to charges of rape, criminal sexual act, sexual abuse, endangering the welfare of a child, and patronizing a prostitute.

UPDATE 7:45 AM PT: LT's lawyer filed a motion today stating the rape indictment should be dismissed because cops didn't have a warrant when they arrested LT.

They're due back in court on January 6.

These people are tasteless idiots to ask for an autograph when he's about to walk into court for rape/sexual abuse of a minor!!!

And how is it that celebs get a police escort?!? You can see where the cops priorities lie! You don't see any other accused rapist get a police escort to the courthouse and the news has cameras on them also.

I am confused,why is he on trial. The girl was a prostitute. I am sure she looked older then 16 and has been around the block several several times. I think she found out who he was and is using it to get publicity for herself. I feel bad for him. He should be found innocent and the girl should go to jail for prostitution.

I'm surprised the DA is wasting taxpayer money with this skank's case.

OK, this guy allegedly rapes a 16 year old prostitute and walks around free over 8 months, while Assange of Wiki Leaks who alleged had consensual sex without a condom, (then changed to rape charges after wiki leaks), has been arrested without bail, had all his credit cards and bank account frozen or closed. What is wrong with this picture? I guess since Lawrence Taylor didn't spill any secretes on Hillary Clinton, the State Department and Obama Administration, then he can do what ever he wants.

The 16 yr old prostitute is probably still working her beat in plain sight of the police who all know her and know she's turning tricks and they're prosecuting this guy. Did they put the wayward young woman in juvie for her crimes? Probably not because she's just a victim. A victim who always gets to keep the money even though it is illegally gotten. Another case of selective justice.

It is amazing in the difference of the law. Here Taylor is accused of having sex with a 16 year old prostitue--Where are her other johns?? Then ther is Big Ben of the Pittsburgh Steelers who is accused of raping 3 women--the latest was a drunk 20 year old college student from Georgia. It says a lot about a so called man's character who gets an under age girl drunk, followers her to a rest room and rapes her. (Charges were dropped by the law--big pay off by the Steelers and NFL, but he cannot escape from the rap of the defence he faces and they will get him?????????????????)

Superman--check out Big Ben or Bret Farve

That's the first time this coke-sniffing child-rapist ever willingly signed an autograph for anyone. I had a very nasty experience with this miserable career-criminal in the parking lot at Mile High Stadium, with my kid. I should have had him arrested then. 3 TNT people witnessed it.

A 16 year old is not a prostitute, she is a victim of exploitation. She was beat by her pimp before and after the altercation. He should be charged based on the fact he broke the New York Penal Law section 230.04 "patronizing a prostitute" - but she was not of age to consent to sell herself for sex- she was a victim of domestic minor sex trafficking. Under the Federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act -force or coersion does not have to be a factor for the 16 year old *MINOR* to be identified as a victim-
