Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was charged with third degree rape of a 16-year-old runaway from New York City. If convicted Taylor faces up to five years in jail.
Taylor’s wife Lynette Taylor spoke exclusively to The Insider yesterday stating she doesn’t believe the allegations and it’s out of character for her husband. Taylor says, “I have no idea what he was doing with a teenager. We’re talking about reports, not what we know as facts. I don’t know if he was with a teenager. Lawrence is 51 years old. Why would a teenage girl be soliciting sex from a 51-year-old man?”
Lynette Taylor asserts her husband is innocent and she believes he was set up.
According to a filed criminal complaint the former athlete admits to paying the 16-year-old $300. Taylor’s wife says he didn’t say those words to her and she doesn’t believe he would to anyone.
When asked what would happen if she caught her husband cheating, Taylor says, “I would kick his ass.”
Is Lynette Taylor in denial? Or does she truly believe her husband is innocent?
