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.

Justice of the rich and famous I guess. Must be nice to have money. I suppose he won't be listed under Megan's law either, even though it was a child he was with?

I dont care if she's 16, she's a prostitiute. Hence, if he paid whatver amount she was asking for sex, he's entitled to sex and there was no rape b/c she voluntarily opened her legs.

Tammy, "statutory" means it is against the law because the girl is underage, it doesn't matter if she consents to it or not.

And we're thinking that Lindsay Lohan gets away with murder? This is disgusting!!! There should be a windshield sticker for the rich that says, "Get outta jail free."

This pedophile belongs in jail, but once again as has been the case for a long time, fame and money beat out justice every time.
