9:45 AM PT -- According to the Cobb County District Attorney's Office, Lawrence Taylor Jr. could face 25 YEARS TO LIFE in prison if convicted on either the sodomy charge or the child molestation charge.

The statutory rape charge carries a sentence of 1 to 20 years behind bars.

We're told LTJ is still in custody ... and has already appeared in front of the judge.

8:05 AM PT -- According to the warrant, obtained by TMZ, the accuser is a female under the age of 16.

Also, according to the doc, the charge of "sodomy" does not entail anal sex -- in the legal sense, the term "sodomy" can refer to oral sex ... as it does in this instance.

According to the warrant, cops responded to a home in Powder Springs, GA around 5pm on July 6 ... and the accuser claimed Lawrence Taylor Jr. forcibly performed oral sex on her.

The accuser told cops LTJ "first asked her if he could eat her out repeatedly in which she stated no."

The accuser says LTJ then "with force spread her legs then pulled her bathing suit to the side and gave her oral sex."

According to the warrant, there was ANOTHER underage girl at the scene ... who told cops she had sex with LTJ back in February 2012 approximately 5 or 6 times.

LTJ was hit with the aggravated sodomy charge and the child molestation charge for the alleged forced oral sex on the first accuser.

He was arrested for statutory rape for the alleged sex with the second accuser.

The son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor has been arrested for rape in Georgia ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Cobb County Sheriff's Office ... Lawrence Taylor Jr. was arrested on July 7 on 3 counts -- statutory rape (felony), aggravated child molestation (felony), and statutory aggravated sodomy (felony).  The details surrounding the arrest are unclear.

According to LTJ's booking sheet -- the NFL legend's son was born in 1981 and is listed at 6'1" and 230 lbs.  He also has a Japanese symbol tattoo on his back. He also has tattoos on his shoulders.

Junior was the "presenter" when his father was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio back in 1999.

LTJ's father was infamously arrested for rape back in 2010 after having sex with an underage prostitute. LT eventually pled guilty to one count of patronizing a prostitute and one count of sexual misconduct. He was sentenced to 6 years probation with no jail time -- and was ordered to register as a sex offender.

A rep for LT had no comment.

Apple did not fall far....
The young lady was 16 and she said no. Either of those facts alone are enough to stop the activity.
Dude belongs in jail, period.

Georgia law is what we expect LiLo to have gotten, not that crappy Hollywood law. When we send someone to prison for X amount of years, they stay there!

The arrogance of these fools. Regardless of age, they consider EVERY female as fair game for their out of control impulses. Then they try to put the blame on the victim: "They wanted it. They came on to me." Very serious charges, very serious time.

I know I'm going to get hated on for this, but something is off.

So, 1 of these girls has been there several times and has had sex with him before. So, clearly she and the other girl expected to have sex.

Are these underage prostitutes?

it doesn't make sense that he'd 'rape' one of them orally, when there's the other one right there, ready and willing in the past.

Somehow this seems like a set-up to me.

LTJ: "Can I eat you out repeatedly?"
12yo: "No, just once."

He just overstayed his welcome is all.

The arrogance of these people. They think that any female, regardless of age, is fair game. "Forcing legs apart" is violence. This clown is facing serious time. They should start thinking with the right head. Pedophiles.

"According to the warrant, there was ANOTHER underage girl at the scene ... who told cops she had had sex with LTJ back in February 2012 approximately 5 or 6 times."

We approve of giving contracpetives to 15 year olds, what else do we expect? Sluts shouldn't off the hook because of their age. It's naive, and more so, hypocritical for the statutory rape laws to go unchanged for so many decades, while teens are having sex the youngest in decades.

The case of girl repeatedly saying no, to this thugs advances, then he forced himself onto her, (IF TRUE) is rape, and he should be charged accordingly, but feminism has resulted in archaic statutory laws.
