Woman Recants Rape Allegation Against Jermain Taylor

by David P. Greisman

The prostitute who had accused Jermain Taylor of raping her last week at a hotel has since recanted her allegation, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, citing police in the city of Maumelle.

That doesn’t mean Taylor is completely out of legal trouble; he “could face other charges, such as soliciting a prostitute,” the article said.

Taylor, 33, has spoken with police but has neither been arrested nor charged with any crime.

Officers were called to a hotel in Maumelle on Friday night for a report of a disturbance. After arriving, a 27-year-old woman told police she and two friends had driven to Arkansas from Mississippi and were paid $500 and gas money to have oral sex with Taylor, according to a police report obtained by BoxingScene.com.

The woman said “she had been coming up here weekly to meet with Mr. Taylor and that the last time she was here he had paid her $2,000,” the police report said. This time, she and Taylor had smoked marijuana and then gotten in an argument, and she fell down the stairs while trying to get away, the woman told police.

Taylor wasn’t at the hotel when police arrived, but the manager told officers that the boxer had been there earlier.

The woman was arrested after police found painkillers in an unlabeled prescription bottle in the room. She was then taken to the hospital, where she told officers that she had been raped, according to the police report.

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.

Jermain is an idiot of major proportions, smoking weed and soliciting protitudes while trying to make a comeback, and I though Juan Manuel Marquez was stupid for turning down a fight at cowboy stadium against Brandon Rios, JT is simply…
