According to federal documents obtained by TMZ, the FBI is investigating the pimp of the Lawrence Taylor‘s alleged rape victim on suspicion of human sex trafficking, a federal violation.
The 16-year-old girl told cops that her pimp, Rasheed Davis, instructed her to tell Taylor she was 19 and to have sex with him against her will.
An FBI agent working on the case says Davis “caused” the girl to “engage in multiple commercial sex acts with various individuals” and “set the prices.”
The federal documents indicate that Davis had sent the girl text messages telling her to have sex with Taylor on May 5, but that she initially refused.
In order to get her to comply, the agent claims Davis physically assaulted her “in an effort to coerce [the victim] into participating in a commercial sex act” and then instructed the victim to tell Taylor she was 19 and to charge him $300 for sex.
The agent says after the alleged encounter, the victim contacted a relative over text message and asked for help.
Police claim to have found $300 in Davis’ car when they tracked him down on May 6 — and Davis admitted he’d received the funds from pimping out the alleged victim to Taylor and others.
Taylor still maintains his innocence.
