Taylor agrees to pay higher child support in NJ

Former NFL great Lawrence Taylor has settled a child support

case involving a New Jersey woman.

An attorney for the 12-year-old girl’s mother says Taylor agreed

Wednesday at a court hearing in Hackensack to pay $650 per

week.

The mother, Ebony Washington of Secaucus (sih-KAW’-kuhs), had

been receiving about $450 per week and had sought more money.

Taylor had sought to have the amount decreased.

Attorney Debra Weisberg says Taylor also must pay about $20,000

to Washington and $30,000 to a joint accountant.

Taylor led the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and

1991.

Since retiring, he has been arrested several times on drug

charges. This year, he pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and

patronizing a prostitute, requiring him to register as a sex

offender.
