The woman who was allegedly raped (non-forcibly) by Lawrence Taylor reportedly told him she was 19. The woman is actually 16, thus the statutory rape charges against LT.
The police are now investigating the pimp that setup up the meeting between LT and the 16-year old girl.
According to federal documents (via TMZ), the pimp told the girl to meet LT, tell him she was 19 and charge $300 for sex with him. She refused, according to the documents, at which point the pimp beat her up. This would explain the black eye police said she had.
The girl allegedly met with LT -- telling him she was 19 -- and exchanged sex for money. The girl, who was reportedly a runaway since March, then text messaged a relative for help.
When police finally caught up with the pimp, they found $300 on him.
What she told LT doesn't necessarily matter. The fact is that she is 16 and if the two indeed had sex, LT would still be charged.
