Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor has won a lawsuit that sought unspecified damages over a sexual encounter in 2010 with an 16-year-old girl in a Rockland County, N.Y. hotel room. 

Per the Associated Press, a jury returned a verdict of not guilty after hearing testimony from Taylor and the now 19-year-old woman. 

Taylor acknowledged he had sex with a prostitute, but did not think she was underage at the time of their encounter at a Holiday Inn in Montebello. The woman had claimed that an abusive pimp had forced her to have sex with Taylor for $300.
