LT Indicted By Grand Jury

The original one, not Tomlinson...

Lawrence Taylor has now been indicted by a suburban New York city grand jury on charges of rape, taking part in a criminal sexual act and sexual abuse.

The indictment is from his May 6th arrest at a Holiday Inn in New Jersey. Prosecutors say he paid a 16-year-old girl $300 to have sex with him- a charge Taylor, through his attorney, has vehemently denied.

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

Rockland County ((NJ)) District Attorney Thomas Zugibe says the 16-year-old told investigators that she had been "verbally threatened and physically assaulted." She said she was brought to the hotel room by a pimp who was later arrested by New York City police.

Taylor's attorney says they made a "strategic decision" not to have Taylor testify before the grand jury.
