Lawrence Taylor faced rape charges in court

NFL legend Lawrence Taylor had attended an arraignment today due to his alleged rape of an underage prostitute in New York.

He had pleaded not guilty to the five charges lodged against him: rape, criminal sexual act, sexual abuse, endangering the welfare of a child, and patronizing a prostitute.

Celebrity news source TMZ.com has reported that the lawyer of Taylor thinks that the case might go to trial.

The NFL superstar had been arrested in May due to an allegation that he performed a sexual act to a 16-year-old prostitute.

Taylor claims that he had never touched the girl sexually.
