New udge gets ex-NFL star Taylor’s rape case

NEW CITY, N.Y. – A new judge will hear the sex assault case against pro football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor in New York.

The Journal News says the State Supreme Court Justice William Kelly was assigned to the case after Rockland County Court Judge William Nelson recused himself. It’s not clear why. Prosecutors and Taylor’s attorney did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press on Friday.

The former NFL star is accused of paying $300 to have sex with a 16-year-old Bronx runaway in a Montebello hotel room. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of third-degree rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child.



His court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday. His defense attorneys are preparing motions to suppress prosecution evidence.
