The 16-year-old girl who allegedly had sex with Lawrence Taylor for $300 told the NFL great she was 19, as per her pimp’s instructions, according to reports.
Taylor was arrested for rape yesterday. The FBI is now investigating her alleged pimp Rasheed Davis on suspicion of human sex trafficking, a federal violation.
An FBI agent assigned to the case claims Davis “caused” the 16-year-old to “engage in commercial sex acts with various individuals” … and even “set prices.”
The FBI agent also claims that Rasheed Davis had taken several “almost nude” photographs of the girl on his cell phone in order to get customers. Sick.
In federal documents, the FBI claims Davis had sent the girl text messages instructing her to have sex with a client (Lawrence Taylor) May 5, but she refused.
As a result, Davis, not Taylor, physically assaulted her – explaining how LT’s accuser was attacked – “in an effort to coerce [the victim] into participating.”
Lawrence Taylor faces a statutory rape charge.
Davis then instructed her to tell Taylor that she was 19 and charge $300.
After the alleged encounter, the agent says the victim contacted a relative via text message to ask for help. Police found Davis and he had $300 in his car.
According to the docs, Davis admitted to police that he had received money from pimping out the alleged victim to Lawrence Taylor … among other guys.
LT has denied, via his attorney, any wrongdoing in the case. He’s been charged with statutory rape and patronizing a prostitute. Lawrence is free on bail.
That innocent-until-proven-guilty business doesn’t count when it comes to attracting customers, though. He was dumped by endorser Nutrisystem today.
“We are shocked and saddened by these very serious allegations against Lawrence Taylor,” the company says in a statement. “Nutrisystem has made the decision to terminate our relationship with Mr. Taylor effective immediately.”
His wife, Lynette, had been scheduled to appear last night on Larry King Live but bailed at the last minute, presumably thanks to advice of LT’s lawyers.
