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.

Makes no sense. Everyone admitted that the chick lied to him about her age. She lied and the pimp lied.

And now he has to register as a sex offender?? Insane!

WARNING to all men. Before you tap it, if the age looks suspect (hooker or non-hooker), ask for ID and hope it is not a fake ID.

I live in rockland county. He really is'nt getting away with anything, because in rockland county, when you are charged as a sex offender that is the next 10 years of your life in probation. As Tammy said it was'nt rape she voluntarily offered sex for money, so she is a young girl that is provacotive (in other words,a f*ing whore).

@Tammy, post 7. How ignorant are you? The girl is a runaway, that got slaved by some pimp. She had no options, it is either comply or get beat up. I hope you never have to be forced into prostitution.

I wonder if wife still supports him and claims he was set-up? If she had one functioning brain cell in her head she would dump the whore loving dirtbag! Can't support him no more- he plead guilty and is now called a SEX-OFFENDER!

I read through a lot of these spam comments and have to wonder what people are thinking. Seriously first of all innocent until proven guilty. He should have NEVER accepted a plea deal that included registering as a sex offender if he is not a sex offender. That alone is a life sentence as I said in a previous post. He ordered a escort do you really think they carry ID? Obviously a mistake was made on his part. But the girl herself stated she told a lie about her age. I do not believe this qualifies him as a sex offender.

Did LT make her a runaway? Did LT force her into the sex trade (not that I know this true)? Now, if you want to talk about punishing the pimp, we'll have no problem agreeing. My comments are about LT.

It wouldn't make a difference, Bruce. Even if a girl shows an id that says she's an adult, a man can still be charged with statutory rape because he should have somehow magically divined that she was underage.

@Bruce - If you have to ask for ID, then you should probably just stay away. If someone looks like they could be under 18 then don't even talk to him or her! He could have paid them to say they lied about her age, who knows.....

That is crap! What is the point of him even filing as a sex offender? It's not going to do anything, he'll still have his millions and never have to go out into the world. He should have got jail just like any one of us would have!

Guys, if you wanna have fun...stick to MILFs and cougars.

That way, you don't have to worry about her showing you a fake I.D. indicating she is of legal age.
