Teen says Lawrence Taylor should have gone to jail


NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — An underage girl whose encounter with former football star Lawrence Taylor led to his conviction for sex crimes says he should have been sent to jail.

The girl, now 17, spoke to the media after Taylor was sentenced Tuesday to six years on probation for sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute.

The girl has been identified in court and by her attorney, Gloria Allred, only by her initials, C.F.

She denied she is a prostitute and said another man forced her to go to Taylor’s hotel room in May 2010. She believes Taylor could tell she had been beaten and that she was underage. She said Taylor took “something precious” from her and should be behind bars.

Allred would not say whether the girl plans a lawsuit against Taylor.
