Marvell Scott – charged with raping 14-year-old hooker, claims he tried to help, not hurt young girl


Ex-sportscaster Marvell Scott, charged with raping a 14-year-old girl, proclaimed Wednesday he is the victim of a shakedown.  “The whole thing was a hoax,” Scott said, standing outside his Harlem apartment.  “They’re pursuing a case that has no proven evidence for it, and they’re relying on the testimonies of criminals and liars.”  Prosecutors say Scott, 36, bumped into a pimp and two young girls in Times Square in June 2008.

The veteran newsman allegedly paid the pimp and brought the girls – ages 14 and 16 – to his old apartment on nearby 47th St. and pressured the younger one into sex.  Scott called the story bogus.  He said he did run into two girls near Times Square, but only allowed them into his home because one was bawling and asked to use his bathroom.  “If the girl wasn’t in some sort of immediate distress, I wouldn’t have invited her up,” Scott said.  “I was trying to get to the bottom of why she was in so much distress and why she was crying.”  “I’m a medical doctor,” said the former WABC/Ch. 7 personality, who left TV for sports medicine.  “For me to lend a helping hand, it’s not abnormal.”  Scott declined to go into details over what happened inside his apartment.  But he said he quickly got the impression there was something fishy going on, prompting him to kick the girls out. “It’s pretty obvious that [the pimp] sent the girls to make money from me any way they could,” Scott said.  He would not address prosecutor’s claims that he called the pimp days later and asked “if he could get with the young woman again.”  “It is explainable,” said Scott, who abrupty left the station last April. “That’ll come out when the time is right.”  He was charged Tuesday with rape, patronizing a prostitute and endangering the welfare of a child, charges that carry up to seven years in prison.  SOURCE: NYDailynews.com

While it’s too soon to tell what the truth is, 2 things stand out to me…

1) Why didn’t the girl use a public bathroom instead going to the home of a stranger?  Last I checked, there are public bathrooms all over Times Square.

2) Another report I read on this story confirms that he did call the pimp (according to phone records).  If dude is aware that these types of shakedown happen, why would he take two teenagers back to his apartment?

Dudes’ reasoning seems sort of lame and raises a red flag…
