NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Lawrence Taylor has come clean, if you could call it that.
The pro football Hall-of-Famer now apparently admits he paid for sex with a 16-year-old prostitute, who, Taylor was told, was 19, according to documents in the case.
The insight into Taylor's case came from papers filed Friday against the girl's alleged pimp, Rasheed Davis.
In the documents, which refer to Taylor only as "Client-1" and the 16-year-old as "Victim-1," police claim Taylor admitted to taking a car service from Newark International airport to a Holiday Inn north of New York City to meet the victim.
After "engaging in sex acts" with the victim, he paid her $300 in cash, the complaint says. Davis, the girl's alleged pimp, had told the Giants legend that the girl was 19, according to the documents.
A federal magistrate ordered Davis held without bail after prosecutors said they suspect the defendant forced other young women into prostitution.
Taylor, 51, was charged May 6 in Suffern, N.Y., with third-degree rape and patronizing a prostitute. His lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has denied the charges.
A 10-time Pro Bowler, he was the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1986 and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1981, 1982 and 1986.
The weight-loss company NutriSystem Inc. said last Friday it had dropped Taylor as a spokesman because of his arrest.
