Pro football Hall of Famer and former New York Giants linebackeer Lawrence Taylor acknowledged cheers from fans during halftime of a Dec. 27, 2009, game between the Giants and the Carolina Panthers, in East Rutherford, N.J. Taylor pleaded guilty today to two misdemeanor counts involving his May arrest for having sex with a 16-year-old prostitute.


NFL Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has avoided jail time by pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts for having sex with a 16-year-old runaway who was lured into prostitution.

The former New York Giants linebacker had pleaded not guilty to felony rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child after his May arrest at a suburban hotel outside the city. Today he pleaded guilty to one count of soliciting a prostitute and a second count of sexual misconduct in having sex with a woman without consent, ESPN reported earlier. Under New York law, because the girl was 16, she could not legally consent to sex.

"She told me she was 19," Taylor said in court, the Associated Press reports.

As part of the plea, he'll be on probation for six years and have to register as a sex offender.

Pimp in Lawrence Taylor case will serve 7-9 years in prison
Lawrence Taylor was able to avoid prison time for after pleading guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute. The pimp who arranged Taylor’s encounter with a 16-year-old girl wasn’t so lucky.

Rasheed Davis has pleaded guilty and admitted wrongdoing in a plea deal that will likely see him sentenced to somewhere between seven and nine years in prison. The 37-year-old Davis has already spent most of his adult life in prison, stemming from a manslaughter conviction.

I am pretty damn sick of the "I thought she was ..." and "she told me she was ..." defence.
If it was never allowed as any part of the defence, you can bet that they would be more careful.

Glad the pimp got sent away at least.
