Teen Prostitute Sues Football Star Lawrence Taylor For Assault & Battery
Football legend Lawrence Taylor has been slapped with a lawsuit by the teenage prostitute he was convicted of sleeping with.
The former New York Giants superstar was arrested in May, 2010, and charged with sexual misconduct and soliciting a prostitute after he was accused of bedding then-16-year-old runaway Christina Fierro in a Ramapo, New York hotel.
He pleaded guilty to the counts and was sentenced to six months of probation in March as part of a plea deal with prosecutors, who also required Lawrence to register as a sex offender.
But the case is refusing to go away - on Monday, Fierro and her lawyer Gloria Allred revealed they had filed suit against Taylor for assault and battery.
Fierro, now 18, claims she had "repeatedly tried to push Taylor off of her" during their encounter, but to no avail.
She is suing for unspecified damages.
