Lawrence Taylor Sued By Teenage Victim In Sex Case

Tuesday November 29th, 2011

NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor is being sued by a teenage girl who he admitted to having sex with as part of a guilty plea in misdemeanor charges earlier this year, the Associated Press reports.

“I feel as though he should be accountable for his crimes and misconduct toward me,” Cristina Fierro said at a news conference today.

Taylor, who plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute, was sentenced to six years’ probation. He was also forced to register as a low-risk sex offender following the trial.

Fierro was 16 in 2010 when the crime occurred.
