Lawrence Taylor’s legal team plans to argue that the former NFL legend didn’t have sex with a 16-year-old prostitute, but instead just jerked off while she was in the room and then a used condom magically appeared. I’m not even joking. TMZ reports:
As one source put it, Lawrence engaged in a “masturbatory act” and that was it.
According to New York law, “A person is guilty of rape in the third degree when … he or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person less than seventeen years old.”
Interestingly … in the criminal complaint against the alleged pimp, authorities allege Taylor engaged in “sex acts” but there is not mention of sexual intercourse — a requirement for 3rd degree rape.
As TMZ first reported, a condom was found in Taylor’s hotel room, but sources say Taylor’s lawyers will argue the condom wasn’t his and he didn’t use it.
In related news, Ben Roethlisberger now claims he didn’t rape a drunk girl in the restroom of a Georgia nightclub. He was simply masturbating and accidentally hit her inside the vagina with his penis. Happens to the best of us.
