Never one to let celebrity scandals pass without getting involved personally, attorney Gloria Allred is representing a woman that will be filing a sex trafficking lawsuit against former football star Lawrence Taylor, according to reports.
Allred and the alleged sexual trafficking victim, now 18, will formally announce the lawsuit at – what else – a news conference in New York City on Monday.
Lawrence Taylor’s accuser said he paid $300 to have sex with her in 2010.
Lawrence Taylor was indicted on charges of rape, a criminal sexual act, and sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child (she was 16 at the time); he eventually pleaded guilty to patronizing a prostitute and one count of sexual misconduct.
He was given probation and registered as a sex offender.
The lawsuit, according to sources, could be the first of its kind filed by an underage sex trafficking victim under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act against a man.
A New York Judge even ruled that Taylor was not a threat to public safety and that it wasn’t “likely” that he would repeat his crime, thus sparing him jail time.
Also, unlike other sex offenders, LT, who must abide by a 1 a.m. curfew, is allowed near schools and playgrounds because he has young children himself.
Basically, no matter how terrible a person he is, Allred may be pushing her luck and trumping up the lawsuit for the sake of publicity … stunning, we know.
