Lawrence Taylor's Son

Released from Jail After Child Molestation Arrest

Lawrence Taylor Jr. -- the son of NFL legend Lawrence Taylor -- has just been released from jail after his July arrest for statutory rape, child molestation, and sodomy, TMZ has learned.

LTJ's mom bonded out her son moments ago in Georgia. Bond was set at $50,000. The 31-year-old will remain free until his next court date, which hasn't been scheduled yet.

TMZ broke the story ... LTJ was arrested on July 7 on 3 counts: statutory rape (felony), aggravated child molestation (felony), and statutory aggravated sodomy (felony).  He remained in custody until today.

According to the warrant, a female under the age of 16 accused LTJ of forcibly performing oral sex on her (legally referred to as "sodomy" in this case). Another underage girl also accused LTJ of having sex with her multiple times last year.

If convicted of either child molestation or sodomy, LTJ faces 25 years to life in prison. The statutory rape charge carries a sentence of 1 to 20 years.

LTJ's lawyer tells us, "Mr. Taylor has some serious challenges that lay ahead of him and we are focusing on those challenges. This is a tough case, no winners here."

You'll recall, LTJ's father was infamously arrested for rape back in 2010 after having sex with an underage prostitute. LT (senior) 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.

Dafuq?? "No winners here" ?? F'er forced himself on what is pretty much a child. No matter what the cir***stance,whether she was a delicate little flower or a nasty little street skank she was still a child and not legally old enough to consent HE FORCED HIMSELF ON HER ... NO WINNERS???? NO WINNERS??? HIs lawyer should be in jail right beside him so Bubba can explain the butt lottery to both of them.

Had this been Florida or California, he might be able to walk away from this with a light sentence. ...but he's in Georgia so he'd better get ready for a long career pressing license plates.
