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.

I am getting pretty sick of the Black Attitude.
.
When I moved to America 16 years ago to open a company the first thing I did was hire a diverse work force. I didn't have a single preconceived idea in my being. Now, I have realized three things:
.
1/ Almost all racism is black on white racism. Blacks are GENERALLY obsessed with skin color and can't stop bringing it up.
.
2/ Black men perpetuate negative stereotypes with their GENERALLY laziness and bend towards criminal behavior.
.
3/ Black women GENERALLY perpetuate negative stereotypes with their large and in charge mouthy bitchinesss.
.
I am not a racist. I wouldn't hesitate to have a black friend or employee. But don't call me a racist if I can't turn off my brain - I can't "unsee" the attitudes of the GENERAL black population.
