I’ve noticed that over the years we have heard stories of how professional men and their involvement with women whether consensual or not has been on the rise. In the latest story,
Ignorance of age isn’t a defense. How intelligent was this child for him not to know she was young? Or was he that naive that he can’t tell a child from an adult?
For his actions, the 51-year-old ex-linebacker, who led the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991, will serve six years' probation and must register as a sex offender.
Taylor said he now knows the girl was 16 year-old and legally incapable of consent.
He said he paid her $300. I know most will agree that a 16 year-old and a 19 year-old aren’t on the same level mentally, or am I so far out of touch with the younger generation that I could be wrong.
Taylor isn’t the first athlete to be charged with some sort of sexual misconduct and as it stand won’t be the last. Why have the professional men let their guards down to also become the subject of public scrutiny?
Some married, some single but all with the same outcome….ridicule.
Just a short list of athletes to have been charged:
Tommie Boyd, and he was charged with sexual misconduct involving a 16 year-old as well.
