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.

You people judge this man w/o knowing all of the facts. #1. If he is having sex with a prostitute or if he is having sex with young women for free, then it's probable that he & his wife don't have sex anymore.



#2. Unsure about his wife, but there are women who have the don't ask don't tell policy on their husbands affairs. There are women who after menopause tell their husbands that they don't want to have sex anymore, but if their husbands want to have sex with young women, then don't tell them about it.



#3. If he reasonably believed that this woman was of the age of majority, then the jury can acquit. It's not believed that he would deliberately pick up underage girls. He may have picked up other women in the past w/o problems.



#4. The same people here who condemn this man w/o knowing all the facts (it's possible his story is true) probably don't protest adult women who have sex with teen boys. These adult women teachers who have sex with teenage boys are way worse in that they KNOW that these boys are underage & the do it repeatedly, while it's believed that this man didn't know her real age. Also there are have been cases where 15 year old male statutory rape victims have been reqd. to pay child care to the adult women who committed statutory rape on him.



It's a matter for the jury to decide if his story is believable. But there are people who've done worse than what this man is accused of.

Lawrence Taylor is SLIME. Looking at him he would have to pay someone to have sex with him. His attorney is making a fool of himself also. Do they really think they convince the public with their deceit?? Hall of fame for trash is where Taylor belongs, no roll model here. They think all they have to do is put an earring and they are so called "cool" Lowest of the low these so called athelets

Whats the deal with these big time superstars? I mean LT made money and he should have a pretty hot wife. Why does he need to get a prostitute??? If I have a pretty wife I dont need to jerk off to a young girl inside a condom (never heard of that). I mean condoms suck when actually having the real thing right. LOL So why not feel some skin. Hes retired from football so its not like hes away from his wife a whole season. Whats these dudes problems. Marry someone you love douchebags.

Ok, will agree that this man is not a role model. Only saying that the punishment must be fair. If a woman willfull & knowingly has sex with him, then he isn't committing a crime. OK, prostitution with an adult is a crime in most states, but that's a misdemeanor.



As to the statutory rape accusation, again if he reasonably believed that she was 18 or older, then a jury can acquit although NY has strict liability laws. The issue as it should be for a jury is do they have reasonable belief that she was 18 or more? It's not the suspect's subjective belief but rather a reasonable belief? If a store sells alcohol to some1 under 21 years old, the store can use as a defense that the minor used a fake Driver's license to show that they were 21 or older. IMO, the same defense must apply in statutory rape cases.



Yes, men who commit statutory rape on teenage girls must do jail time, as should adult women who commit statutory rape on teenage boys. The thing is that adult women who've committed statutory rape on teenage boys have usu. gotten probation while men have gotten jail time for doing it with teenage girls. My guess is that most of you condemning this man probably don't write on Internet blogs protesting this sentencing disparity.

Ha ha. I believe it. He can't get it up. We get old we can't get the thumper to be a pumper. The damn thing is a flaccid noodle. It's true. Diabetes, too much weight. Many, have problems and have to use their hand to get it up. This is true.

James, you have a point on impotence. But couldn't he use Ginseng or medicines which treat impotence if indeed this is true? After all, unless a man has a heart condition, can't he use Viagra? Your thoughts are welcome. Finally my earlier post moved.

Ego's Gone Wild -(NOT ALL BUT MANY) Whether it is Sports / Actors / Politicians / Power Brokers or the Wealthy - they think they have a right to use any one else as their own personal toilet paper. These kind of people have no humanity in their blood just vain over the wall ego's and believe themselves to be some kind of god and have a right to use abuse and damage others for their own self pleasure or gain. Across this nation people have put these over-rated sports people on pedestals for a pure BS Physical Talent and then close their eyes to their wrong doings. Any one given a talent should be grateful and giving to others as way to pay back their own blessings to the society which supports them. It is appalling to me that so many cheer for these Pigs just because of a physical talent and not the character of which should be the basis on which we determine who should be cheered. * LT is 51 years old, married has had fame, money and certain power because of, and yet he decides to degrade his self his family his sport because of his ****. He is a DISGRACE to any one who is of right mind and moral understanding. If this girl was my daughter, sister, family member or friend, I can assure you I would go kick the dog right out of his miserable degenerated butt and then leave him for the crap eating dogs. His legal tactics as I have learned are working behind the scenes to coerce/bribe/pay any one in her family friends to discredit anything she says. They along with LT are just pure pieces of crap. The girl was beaten did u not see her pics, she like many teens found herself in a dog eat dog world surrounded by trash like LT and the Pimp. There is no excuse for LT's action's. He should have been trying to guide her away from such acts not use her as his personal toilet. He is 51 years old - that's old enough to be her grand father and yet he decides that being a degenerate is more important than helping and guiding a youth away from such despicable acts. He deserves no support he deserves no understanding and is just a worthless piece of crap. I would suggest to the court to allow me about 24 hours with him and I would put an ass whoppin on him along with some education about right and right and then de-**** his rotten butt. This world needs people with character to example after not a bunch of degenerate over-rated sport stars who think with their ****s. I know there are many good sport stars out there, but with what we are seeing in this nation and others it makes one wonder just what is of value to a society when they over praise over pay and cheer nothing but common degenerates. By the way, the word is the girl's friend has been bribed to say she said they had no sex. The rape victim has clearly stated she was raped. People say what about the pimp allowing her to text again not true, that was done without his knowledge. Think about do you think he would have allowed her to text, so he could get arrested again. A 51 year old super star, what a joke he is nothing more than a 51 year degenerate with an ego out of control. Also it is said he cooperated with police so what, was he going run etc. he doesn't have that much balls. Also he did not answer the door when police knocked and announced themselves with request to open and guess what he did not open the door, the police had to gain entry, which gave LT time enough to dispose of any drugs in his possession. I think we should be praying that this girl gets what help she needs to grow and enrich her life and understand that vermin like the pimp and LT are all around us.

Bull Hammer, your lecture is big talk. No, he isn't a role model. But wWhether or not they had sex, if he reasonably believed that she was 18 or older, then a jury will acquit-this poster would. If a 50 something year old man wants to have sex with women 18 or older, then good. If he has the charm to get the prettiest youngest women over a woman who has hit menopause, then good. If he needs to pay for this, then so be it. But why can't you allow a jury to decide this case, rather than judge by media accounts? Innocents have been accused.



Bull Hammer, this will be repetitive, but my guess is that you don't protest 34 year old adult women who knowingly have sex with 15 year old boys. Bull Hammer, chances are that you're just 1 of those talkers who writes big on a computer screen but doesn't have the guts to do it.

Read up on child prostitution & abuse. Miley & whoever else at the age of consent can WILLINGLY bang whoever she/they want/s. Kids being FORCED or COERCED are VICTIMS. People under 18 yrs of age's brains generally haven't even finished forming. This usually happens by age 18. Also, they have no real-world experience, and children who've been abused often have a hard time knowing who to trust, are quick to find a "saviour" & are therefor more easily duped into compromising situations by an adult pimp temporarily playing the role. I'm a victim of child abuse. Maybe you weren't, and therefor you do not grasp the psychology of the crime on both ends. Not your fault, but educate yourself. You just may change your minds & become useful tools for helping these kids out and onto better lives.

Maybe the 16 year old has not been charged because the pimp has been charged a few times with human trafficking. You might want to educate yourself about this case. Maybe the girl isn't a prostitute and is a young girl that was trafficked from out of state and was forced to sell herself.



LT HAS to register as sex offender. Under New York law, third-degree rape is defined as someone 21 or older having sex with someone under 17.
