Lawrence Taylor celebrated his court victory against a young prostitute cigar style.
The girl, Cristina Fierro -- who was 16 at the time of the incident -- sued Taylor in civil court, claiming the NFL legend had brutalized her into submission in a hotel room back in 2010.
But after a week of testimony, the jury returned a verdict in LT's favor in just 50 minutes. LT -- who shouted "Whoooeee!" as he lit up the stogie, said afterward, "I feel for what she’s gone through. I wasn't a bad person. I could have helped her. I hope the best for her. Now it's time to go back and concentrate on my own broken life."
You'll recall, Taylor was sentenced last year to six years probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanor charges of sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute.
BTW ... apparently LT's lawyer asked for an autograph and LT obliged by signing his John Hancock on the jury's verdict sheet.
