Lawrence Taylor Strikes Plea Deal in Rape Case

1/13/2011 5:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lawrence Taylor just pled guilty to two misdemeanor charges as part of one helluva plea deal in his statutory rape case -- and will get off with no jail time but will have to register as a sex offender.

Lawrence Taylor Plea
The NFL Hall of Famer was in court in Rockland County, NY ... and pled guilty to one count of patronizing a prostitute and one count of sexual misconduct -- all stemming from his arrest last May for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Taylor was originally charged with a felony ... and could have gotten 4 years in prison. Instead he'll get probation -- but as part of the plea deal he has to register as a sex offender.
