Lawrence Taylor -- I Pleasured Myself, Not Her

5/12/2010 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawrence TaylorSources directly connected with Lawrence Taylor tell TMZ the NFL legend's defense to rape is masturbation.

We're told Lawrence will not deny he was in the same room as the 16-year-old prostitute, but his lawyer will argue Lawrence did not have sexual intercourse -- an element of third degree rape.

As one source put it, Lawrence engaged in a "masturbatory act" and that was it.

According to New York law, "A person is guilty of rape in the third degree when ... he or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person less than seventeen years old."

Interestingly ... in the criminal complaint against the alleged pimp, authorities allege Taylor engaged in "sex acts" but there is not mention of sexual intercourse -- a requirement for 3rd degree rape.

As TMZ first reported, a condom was found in Taylor's hotel room, but sources say Taylor's lawyers will argue the condom wasn't his and he didn't use it.

Taylor's lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has said flatly, his client did not have sex with the girl.

Dirtbag lawers will always come up with some kind of defense to get their clients off. They could care less if a crime actually happened, as long as they win their case. If LT actually did have sex or beat his meat in front of this girl he's a s***bag and deserves to go to jail. His lawyer is no better because he will do everything to make it look like it was the girls fault. I wonder how either of these men would feel if it were their daughter who was used and pimped out.

Good Lord ... when are these "Ex"-athletes and current athletes gonna learn that "sleazy" people (the pimp), "sleazy" motels, amd "sleazy" situations ... equals SOMEONE TRYIN' TO RIP YOU OFF (and, I am NOT including this CHILD in this comment) !!! WHY do these guys CONTINUALLY put themselves in these situations? Yes, I know that, once you have money, friends (true friends) become almost impossible to find but, you are SURE not going to find them from a pimp or a prostitute, at a "by the hour" hotel! L.T. (who I have had "zero" respect for, for a long time), WAKE UP !!! Avoid these places and these situations!
L.T., I think you need "permanent" re-hab! Time to look for some local meetings, if you get out of this mess!

Can't they just get his DNA off the girl? (hope they did a rape kit on her) Even if he used a condom there should still be some evidence on her that is his.

whether he had sex with her or not what is this grown ass old man m@sturbating in front of a 16 year old girl? This is totally wrong, he's a pervert. He needs to go to jail!!!



if he doesn't go to jail this will prove that celebrities get away with everything. THIS IS WRONG, whether the 16 year old was a prostitute or not. What if she wasn't a prostitute and she was a child that was traffic? They need to investigate where is this girl from.

There are multiple possible interpretations of "masturbatory act". I wouldn't be surprised if this means he received oral sex from the girl, rather than intercourse.



It's a technicality (in my opinion) but one that has been used before.

THIS BROTHER IS ONE LARGE PIECE OF CRAP. BEEN ON CRACK MOST OF HIS LIFE. BLOWN A FORTUNE ON DRUGS AND HIS CREW.



GUESS THE CONDOM BELONGED TO THE GUY WHO WAS WEARING OUT L.T.'S BIG FAT AZZ BEFORE THE UNDERAGED GIRL GOT TO THE ROOM. LIKE HE REALLY PAID $300 FOR A 16 YEAR OLD GIRL TO COME TO HIS ROOM SO HE COULD GET HIS JERK ON. NUT UP L.T. YOU DID HER, NOW DO YOUR TIME.



ALL I KNOW IS IF THAT WAS MY DAUGHTER, IT WOULDN'T MATTER HOW THE CASE TURNED OUT, HIS BIG FAT AZZ WOULD BE MINE. HE WOULDN'T TOUCH ANOTHER MINOR.
