i don't think ignorance of the law is ever an excuse. if it is, then thanks for the tip! no more speeding tickets for me! haha

Another part is how LT's past convictions will play into sentencing. If NY has any type of 3 strike law, and he does get found guilty of the current charges, and not a lesser one, he could be looking at a longer time than 3-4 years.
really? aren't the charges he's looking at already considered a misdemeanor? or do 3 strike laws apply to ANY kind of conviction?

This is before he got a lawyer, as he was under the impression it was just a simple solicitation charge. after it came out that the girl was 16, he got a lawyer. the lawyer denied what LT had previously admitted to, but it may have to do with the actual nature of the contact between the LT and the girl.
I guess I totally missed that then

If this case actually goes to trial I doubt very seriously that line of defense will be pursued. Even his "scumbag" lawyer would defer on that one.

The sex charge is a felony, the prostitution charge is probably a misdemeanor. I think 3 strikes only apply to felonies. I don't really know, just know he has been convicted of another felony(ies), and a felony sex charge conviction would surely end bad (worse than the 3-4 years mandatory) for him.

well many states ( i thought) allow for the defense to prove the defendant reasonably believed that the victim was over the age of consent. ie if you are in a college bar and take a lady into the bathroom, you would be able to defend yourself if she turned out to be 16, but not if she is 20, but then you get a cop to erase the tape and don't say anything, and it doesn't apply anyway.

(see how i tie all this back to the original thread title without actually mentioning anyone. witty cynicism indeed!)

impressive! however, i think the similarities end there. since taylor is retired, its not like his team can threaten to trade him to oakland in an effort to convince him to clean up his life. no one wants to be the QB for oakland.

Re: What do Big Ben and Lawrence Taylor have in common?

Quote:
"The only thing I can tell you was that [Taylor] had no contact with Rasheed Davis or anyone who acted like a pimp," Aidala said. "Let's deflate some of the myths. He doesn't know this guy.

"I don't think we are going to see any phone records of this person coming into LT's phone, going out of LT's phone," Aidala added. "In terms of Rasheed Davis, Lawrence is adamant that he has no clue who this person is."

According to the complaint, Davis sent the girl a text message on Wednesday in which he said he wanted her to have sex with "Client-1" for $300. When she refused, Davis began threatening her with text messages, prosecutors said.

The texts were "along the lines of 'I'm going to 'F' you up,'" Kramer said.

The complaint said Davis later beat up the victim, drove her to the hotel against her will and waited outside for an hour while she had sex with Taylor.

"I believe even by the investigation done by the district attorney's office and the police department, nobody is saying that Lawrence Taylor saw a bloodied-up young woman," Aidala said. "If he saw a young, underaged woman bloodied up, he wouldn't want anything to do with her except get her help. If you see some woman thrown into your room and she is in distress -- he did not see any woman in distress, bloodied injured in any way shape or form."
Aidala reiterated that his client did not have intercourse with anyone at the hotel that night.

"I don't think their statement is, 'Yes he had sex with her,'" Aidala said of what authorities are claiming. "I think their statement is, 'Yes, he had sexual relations with her.' [But] I don't have a copy of the statement."
Here is what LT's lawyer is now saying, from an ESPN story, and seems like he is trying to backtrack on a lot, from LT not knowing the pimp (so then who called is an interesting question) to the fact that she was not bruised. I think the lawyer has a tough job, and still believe he is trying to give the DA a line to make a deal on.

Is the answer to this question 2 Super Bowl rings?

If I am looking two mentor kids, I will pass on these two guys. If I am looking to win football games, I would take both in a second.

Re: What do Big Ben and Lawrence Taylor have in common?

More news... apparently LT simply played with himself. I know he has said this but now the friend who drove the girl to meet LT is saying that after the encounter the victim advised them she made easy money. She didn't even have to "F" him cause all he did was masturbate.
Comments on 16-year-old hooker told friend: I didn't hav - 05-13-2010

Quote:
"The 16-year-old hooker whose claims about having sex with ex-Giant Lawrence Taylor led to a rape charge against him actually bragged to a friend about making "easy money" because "I didn't even have to f him," a source told The Post.

The friend, who drove with the hooker to meet Taylor that night, has given a sworn statement that the girl told her immediately afterward that the Hall of Famer merely engaged in masturbation before paying her $300 not sexual intercourse or oral sex, said the source.
So now either it truly didn't happen or is LT paying someone off to say they were told there was no physical sex involved?

definitely TMI

I don't think this makes things any better, and legally he may still be in hot water.

I'm sure there still has to be a charge for exposing oneself to a minor but atleast it might not be a felony. Atleast I think thats what he and his lawyer are going to argue.

It still ruins his image and if he had a family I'm sure it doesn't help it out either.

Re: What do Big Ben and Lawrence Taylor have in common?

Anyone hear his wife in a recent interview? She's in total denial. She sounds crazy as all hell too. Not surprising I guess since LT isn't exactly the most stable person either.

Re: What do Big Ben and Lawrence Taylor have in common?

That quote sure seems a little odd. What friend rode with her? was the friend there when she was beat up? Now she is a 16yo hooker, not a 16yo runaway. That seems to me like someone trying to protect, not only LT, but possibly the pimp as well. not to mention paying 300 for ?nothing?

here is another quote from the link about who said the earlier quote:
Quote:
The friend a stripper who lived with the hooker and accused pimp Rasheed Davis in The Bronx told investigators she has come forward to contradict the hooker's tale to cops because of "three things: they didn't have sex, she's lying, and he's innocent," according to the source.
