Lawrence Taylor's 3rd wife appeared on The Insider last night to defend her man against serious, career-ending charges that he raped a 16-year-old girl in a NY hotel room last week.
Taylor was arrested May 6th and charged with third-degree statutory rape and patronizing a prostitute. He was released on $75,000 bail.
Despite the fact that Taylor admitted paying the runaway teen $300 to perform sexual favors, his wife adamantly insists that her husband did nothing wrong.
Let's look at the facts:
Taylor admitted paying the teenager for sex. The teenager told her uncle and police she had sexual intercourse with the Pro Football Hall of Famer. A used condom was found inside Taylor's Holiday Inn motel room. What more evidence does his wife need? Certainly this isn't the first time LT has ordered up a prostitute while on the road.
But it is easy to understand why his wife would stand by him: they need the cash. That rape charge hanging over LT's head will certainly chase away the last few endorsements he has left.
