Former Giants great LT was indicted Wednesday for having sex with a teenage prostitute.

The Hall of Famer was charged with rape, engaging in a criminal sexual act and sexual abuse of the Bronx teen by a Rockland County grand jury.

He was also hit with charges of endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute.

Taylor was busted on May 6 at a Holiday Inn after the 16-year-old told cops he paid her $300 to have sex with him.

LT faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

He has denied the charges. But in an interview with The Daily News, the baby-faced teen insisted she and LT "definitely had intercourse."

The weight-loss company NutriSystem Inc. has dropped Taylor as a spokesman because of his arrest.
