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.

Ok it was Sunday night and I couldn't sleep, couldn't find anything on this 156 channel dish I have and I wandered upon Nancy Grace ( I know...she gives all us southern women the creeps) and it was here I learned about Mr. Taylor....ok, after trying to scream at the tv at Nancy so any number of her guests could get one damn word in edgewise...I discerned this: This girl was a runaway for around 3 weeks, came upon this "pimp" who immediately put her in a position of not being able to get away from him. Took her to Mr. Taylor's room and the rest is history. Nancy, in all her Atlanta accent kept harping on the fact that this girl wasn't allowed to basically pee without this pimp on her butt....so how is it that when the girl leaves Mr.Taylor's company, not only is she able to finally after 3 weeks loose the pimp, but call her uncle ( and with what phone since the pimp took all her possessions) and tell her uncle who she was with?? This liasion happens at a little after 1 am and by 3:55 am, the police are knocking on Mr. Taylor's door. Fast work. The any number of men she could have possibly been with the prior 3 weeks more than likely HAD sex with her...how is it that that is acceptable and she didnt try to make an escape and call the uncle, but apparantly seeing Mr. Taylor just masturbate is so disturbing, she can finally make her getaway and call the uncle? Look, I'm not taking up for this man, if he had sex with her, then he will get his just punishment. If he labored under the assumption she was of age and he wanted to be freaky and make her watch him pleasure himself. ok we will know him for his freakiness....BUT if he was totally set up then that needs to come out too...I just don't know....and I still have a headache from listening to Nancy and it's Wednesday!! Any theories? comments?? And please all you Nancy Grace lovers, don't reply I am just NOT a fan of hers, she truly does make the rest of us southern women roll our eyes....

There are going to be ways of determining if that was Taylor's condom and if it was used for intercourse. I'm glad I'm not the one who has to do it though.

He still committed a crime using a pimp and kidnapping if this girl, who he thought was a woman, was there against her will. He did not let her leave. Sex slave trafficing. He paid $300 to someone for something sexual to occur. He is clearly lying. Sure they tested the condom and could find DNa or other evidence from both him and her. This is what he gets, he has a wife at home. Obviously, he has done this before for him to have this pimps number. Nasty thing.

LT paying a hooker 300 to watch him choke his wiener isn't that unbelievable to me. Hell, if you've ever actually watched any of those HBO do***entaries about hookers then you would know what LT did is pretty tame compared to some Johns.

These so-called sports "heros" should be put down immediately. Heros are soldiers protecting America, nor over paid freaks playing some game, then becoming public figures, above the law, telling us what they think is right and wrong experts..
Mostly. they are ex-thugs with millions, escaping the laws we commoners abide by;
Charles Barkley
Tiger Woods
the list goes on, into actors, rappers etc., black and white.



By the way, I am a Black woman, before you rad out people.

Through him the book. That's still sexual assault, he does not have to physically touch her too be charged. It's pathetic that he would even do what he did. These men need to learn how to be men and not slum. Teach him a lesson and make him an example for everyone else.

You people are so judgemental. I feel bad for the girl for being put in a situation where she's prostituting but for me the main issue here is that she and her pimp misrepresented her as a 19 y/o. How is LT to be responsible for that. At most he should be held responsible for soliciting sex but rap or anything of the sort does not fit no matter if he had sex with her or not.
