I guess it’s true what they say, “like father, like son!”
On Sunday, the son of Giants legend Lawrence Taylor was arrested around 5:30 a.m. in the city of Powder Springs, Georgia (northwest of Atlanta) on three felony charges of statutory rape, sodomy and child molestation.
32 year-old Lawrence Taylor Jr., who stands at 6-foot 1inch tall and 230 pound, remains in jail with no bond.
Taylor’s father, the once great Giant linebacker, himself faced rape charges after a 2010 rendezvous with an underage prostitute and served no jail time. L.T is a current registered sex offender and remains on probation in that case.
The NYdailynews reports, Taylor’s father pleaded guilty to charges of patronizing a prostitute and sexual misconduct, lesser offenses than the original felony statutory rape charge.
Known as T.J., Taylor Jr. made news last year after he auctioned off the Super Bowl XXV ring his father won in 1991 as a member of the Giants. As a 17-year-old, T.J. spoke at the 1999 ceremony for L.T.’s induction into the Canton, Ohio, Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“If I could pick anyone to be my father, I’d pick Lawrence Taylor,” T.J. said that day.
OMG, he tried to enter through the back door, “sodomy!”…I can’t…..
