    Lawrence Taylor has been locked up in connection with the sexual assault of a minor.


     
    Authorities in New York expect that the NFL linebacker will be slapped with a charge of third-degree rape,
    CNN.com reports. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.
     
    LT was arrested this morning at a Holiday Inn in Ramapo, New York, after cops were tipped off to his location by the uncle of a 16-year-old prostitute. 


     
    The girl, a runaway from the Bronx, was reportedly dropped off at the hotel by her pimp. After the teen and her pimp got back to the city, she texted her uncle who called the police department.


     
    NYPD apprehended the pimp before alerting authorities in Ramapo where Lawrence was taken into custody. According to
    TMZ.com, he’s still in lock-up and insisting that he is innocent of the allegations against him.


     
    And the athlete’s wife, Lynette Taylor, told
    TMZ that she believes the whole thing is a setup because the timing of the incident is a little suspect in her opinion. The arrest comes just days after Lawrence was featured on A&E’s “Fame and Recovery.”
