Jermain Taylor Accused of Rape, No Charges Filed Yet

by David P. Greisman

Police in Arkansas are investigating a case in which a woman says she met with Jermain Taylor to have sex with him for money, but ended up getting raped, according to the Arkansas News Bureau. 

Taylor, 33, has not been arrested nor charged with any crime. The woman was taken into police custody on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance, the report said.

Officers arriving at a hotel in the city of Maumelle on Friday night were told by the 27-year-old woman that “she had gone to the hotel for the purpose of having sex with Taylor for money, and that they began arguing. She told officers she became frightened during the argument and fled, and in doing so she fell down a flight of stairs and injured her ankle,” the article said.

After arriving at the hospital, she said she’d been raped.

Though police didn’t find Taylor at the hotel, its manager “confirmed that the boxer had been at the establishment, but left before officers arrived,” the article said.

Taylor fought April 20, rising from a late knockdown to defeat Caleb Truax by unanimous decision. That victory, which raised his record to 30-4-1 with 18 knockouts, was the former middleweight champion’s second fight back from more than two years out of the ring.

He'll probably be back in the ring real soon to pay his lawyer.

I don't know why but somehow i don't think this is true. He doesn't seem to be that kind of guy

Rape?? She is a hooker, for crying out loud! When will the law help men and not favor women all the time?

I never really liked Jermain Taylor but I still don't think this little tidbit of details add up. I smell Shenanigans tbh.
