Police: Lawrence Taylor's son charged with rape

POWDER SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) -- Police in suburban Atlanta say a man who identified himself as the son of NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has been arrested on rape charges.

Powder Springs police said Monday that 31-year-old Lawrence Taylor Jr. is accused of having sex with two underage girls. Police say one girl accused Taylor of sexually assaulting her July 6, and that another accused him of having consensual sex with her last year.

The elder Taylor, 54, was a linebacker for the New York Giants between 1981 and 1993 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999. Taylor was sentenced last year to six years of probation after pleading guilty to charges stemming from sex with an underage prostitute.

Taylor, Jr., is being held without bond on statutory rape, aggravated child molestation and aggravated sodomy charges. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
