Lawrence Taylor Pleads Guilty
November 29, 2011 by staff
The lawsuit “may be the first civil lawsuit of its kind on behalf of a child victim of sex trafficking against a buyer of a commercial sex act with that child,” the victim’s attorney, Gloria Allred, said at a news conference.
“I feel as though [Taylor] should be accountable for his crimes and misconduct toward me” said Cristina Fierro, who was 16 when the episode occurred and who went unnamed during the criminal phase of Taylor’s case. Now 18, she went public with her story earlier this year.
In addition to seeking damages from Taylor, Fierro alleges in the lawsuit that Taylor assaulted and battered her. Allred did not offer details about the alleged assault, saying those would be revealed in the discovery phase of the lawsuit.
Taylor was arrested at a Holiday Inn in New York in May 2010 after having “improper sexual conduct involving an underage girl in a Rockland County hotel,” the district attorney’s office said at the time. Prosecutors said Taylor paid Fierro, who has repeatedly denied allegations that she was a prostitute, $300 for “sexual acts.”
The former Giants linebacker pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges stemming from the incident, one count of sexual misconduct and one count of patronizing a prostitute in the third degree.
Taylor, who has said he was unaware that Fierro was underage when he had sex with her, was sentenced to six years’ probation in March and assessed a $2,000 fine. A month later, a judge designated him a Level 1 sex offender, a low-level classification.
