On Aug. 29, 2013, Lawrence Taylor Jr., the son of football star Lawrence Taylor, was released from jail after being arrested last month in Georgia for child molestation, sodomy, and statutory rape, according to TMZ.
His mother reportedly bailed him out on a $50,000 bond.
TMZ reports that the warrant for Taylor Jr.’s arrest states that a female below the age of 16 accused him of performing oral sex on her and engaging in sex acts with her a number of times.
His attorney told TMZ, “Mr. Taylor has some serious challenges that lay ahead of him and we are focusing on those challenges. This is a tough case, no winners here.”
Taylor, 31, could spend decades behind bars if convicted of the crimes with which he is charged.
His father, Taylor Sr., pled guilty to one count of sexual misconduct and one count of patronizing a prostitute and was ordered to do 6 years of probation and register as a sex offender, according to TMZ. He also lost a lucrative endorsement with Nutrisystem due to the scandal.
