Lawrence Taylor has officially been charged with the rape of a 16-year-old New York girl.

As previously reported Taylor was arrested May 6th at a Holiday Inn hotel on charges of rape, criminal sexual act and criminal abuse.

Prosecutors say he paid a 16-year-old girl who was working as a prostitute $300 to have sex with him but Taylor still claims that he never had sex with the minor.

The girl told authorities that she had been verbally threatened and physically assaulted. The girl’s alleged pimp Rasheed Davis was previously arrested for sex trafficking.

The girl told authorities that her pimp made her lie to the NFL legend about her age and assaulted her to “coerce her” into “participating in a commercial sex act.”

Taylor was also indicted on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute.
