LT Pleads Not Guilty

The immortal Lawrence Taylor pleaded not guilty in a New City, NY court on Tuesday to charges that he had sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The Hall-of-Fame Giant allegedly paid $300 to the girl, a Bronx runaway, for their encounter in May. Taylor pleaded not guilty through his lawyer to third-degree rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child.

Defense attorney Arthur Aidala has denied that Taylor had sex with the girl.

Court papers in a federal case against the girl's alleged pimp say Taylor admitted to sex acts with the girl but was told she was 19.

The 51-year-old LT is due back in court on Aug. 3. If convicted, Taylor could face up to four years in prison.
