LT -- Consequences of the Masturbation Defense

5/23/2010 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If Lawrence Taylor manages to convince a jury that he merely self-pleasured himself in front of a 16-year-old girl -- he could still wind up as a registered sex offender.

Here's the rub -- aside from the statutory rape charge, LT is accused of patronizing an underage prostitute.

If the jury buys LT's expected argument -- that he masturbated in front of the girl but did not have sex with her -- he would qualify as a sex offender ... and could be forced to register as one.

LT's defense team is clearly aware of the situation -- and sources close to the case tell us his lawyers will do "everything possible to keep LT off the sex offender registry."

Q    

LT will be welcomed nowhere by anyone unless its some kind of weird sex convention and other weirdos want to be near him. His commerical appeal died the night he came for that girl, whether in her, on her, on on his own hand. Ovah, as in Ovah. LT, you had your fun, a good run, now go lie down amongst those you truly are from, with, and among---the decrepit.



You made money (spent it), had glamour, attention and adoration---now you're just creepy, and sponsors dont want creeps unless its some kind of kinky porno convention or such. You can be a greeter at some HO house outside a Reno maybe. You be fine. And so will we.

Whatever    

She said she was 19 and I believe she had the ID to prove it. So please tell me how someone is supposed to know that a girl that says she is 19, has ID that says she is 19 is supposed to know she is really 16? I guess he should've had his crystal ball or dionne warwick on speed dial. Whatever!

I don't condone what he did, but to charge someone as a sex offender because a girl lied about her age, seriously!!! If he had asked for a 16 year old girl, that is one thing, but to be set up, and the courts fully aware that he was set up and to continue prosecuting him anyways as a sex offender just shows that our system does not work. In LT's eyes, he just ordered a hooker, he was set up, how bout prosecuting the pimp, not the victim?

It's not right that he is in all this trouble because she lied about her age. There has to be some consequences for deliberately trying to extort money from this guy and that is what this is a shake down. He didn't pay up and she went public. She deserves to be in jail not him. Print her name and picture so she can't do this again to some other unsuspecting person.

I personally can't stand LT. A Detroit radio station once did an interview with him and he came across as the biggest Richard in the USA. However, if that girl spoke up as soon as she entered his hotel room and told him she was just 16 years old, maybe he would have told her to take off and none of this would have happened.

Well folks the one thing we are forgetting is that L.T. the drug addict, the liar, the cheater, the Hall of Fame s***bag, has a wife and children at home while he's out jerking off in front of a teenager.

Hw has money so he will get off. But let this be not be a star then they will be labeled. The girl will get paid off and then he will be off the hook. We need to get these lawmaker to make laws that are going to stick. We need to get the teenager who have have sex with their under age boyfreind or girlfreind. They are sexual active now but when they break up they call it RAPE. I have a 19 going 10 year in jail for this then he is a sex offendewr for life. Lets get real with the laws.

If Lawrence Taylor gets away with this, Ben Roethlisberger, Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant will all hit themselves in the head saying "why didn't I think of that." Woods would probably hit himself in the head with a golf club and rear window of his SUV instead of his wife. Also I remember reading in Lawrence Taylor's book his admitting to using crack. I think that will come up later as he's crazy anyway.

Ok..talk about throw away money..let me get this straight..seek out a pimp.who provides a 16yr old girl..pays her $300 then masterbates in front of her? Whatever happened to simply putting in a porn movie. Pleasure YOURSELF ALONE just you and the movie in the privacy of your home. ALONE. I dont understand the reason for paying $300.00 to jack off in front on ANYONE..I reckon I am a bit CHEAP but I aint about to masterbate in front of anyone then PAY THEM!
