Remember when Lawrence Taylor’s son was arrested in the beginning of July?!  Well he was just released today from jail.  I wonder why it took that long to bail him out?!  I’m not counting pockets, but I wouldn’t think $50k would be too hard  for his dad to come up with?!  Maybe his family was teaching him a lesson until a judge has their say?
Details after the jump…



Via TMZ:

Lawrence Taylor Jr. — the son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor — has just been released from jail after his July arrest for statutory rape, child molestation, and sodomy, TMZ has learned.

LTJ’s mom bonded out her son moments ago in Georgia. Bond was set at $50,000. The 31-year-old will remain free until his next court date, which hasn’t been scheduled yet.

TMZ broke the story … LTJ was arrested on July 7 on 3 counts: statutory rape (felony), aggravated child molestation (felony), and statutory aggravated sodomy (felony).  He remained in custody until today.

According to the warrant, a female under the age of 16 accused LTJ of forcibly performing oral sex on her (legally referred to as “sodomy” in this case). Another underage girl also accused LTJ of having sex with her multiple times last year.

If convicted of either child molestation or sodomy, LTJ faces 25 years to life in prison. The statutory rape charge carries a sentence of 1 to 20 years.

LTJ’s lawyer tells us, “Mr. Taylor has some serious challenges that lay ahead of him and we are focusing on those challenges. This is a tough case, no winners here.”
