Legendary football icon Lawrence Taylor is involved in a new rape scandal. Well, actually, it's his son Lawrence Taylor Jr. this time. Check out our 5 Fast Facts including details of the charges, arrest, his father's rape scandal, LTJ's life, and the victim.

It looks like this kind of behavior may run in the blood of the Taylor family. In 2011, NFL star Lawrence Taylor pleaded guilty to "sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute" according to CBS Local. The girl, Cristina Fierro, much like in his son's case, was only 16 years old to boot.

In 2012, Taylor was sentenced to serving 6 years of probation and registering as a sex offender. We wonder if his son will have the same luck.

Well, not only was Lawrence Taylor Jr. arrested for statutory rape like his father; he was also charged with aggravated child molestation and the dreaded statutory aggravated sodomy. Ouch! In terms of the sodomy charge, TMZ reports that:

Also, according to the doc, the charge of "sodomy" does not entail anal sex -- in the legal sense, the term "sodomy" can refer to oral sex ... as it does in this instance.

Let's hope it's the latter for the victim's sake. The arrest occurred in Powder Springs, GA at approximately 5pm on July 6th.


3. LT Jr.'s Alleged Victim Gives Graphic Details to Police

TMZ also stated that the victim told police that LTJ:

first asked her if he could eat her out repeatedly in which she stated no.

She then added that he:

with force spread her legs then pulled her bathing suit to the side and gave her oral sex.


4. He Recently Lost One of His Good Friends

Just weeks ago, Army Veteran Ernest Zaus Jaquine Barnett, 30, was laid to rest. Perhaps it was the death of his friend that caused a rage within LT Jr. But, we hate to speculate.

Born in Upper Saddle River, NJ, LT Jr. grew up a jersey boy before moving to Atlanta, Georgia where his friend Barnett was living as well. He graduated from Vance High School and attended North Carolina Central University. As a sports fanatic himself, he enjoys watching Sports Center and ESPN ... He also enjoys long walks on the beach, cuddling on the couch, and ... just kidding.
