SportingNews.com: Lawrence Taylor's recklessness could finally land him in prison

Much can be said about Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor’s arrest for statutory rape.  And much will be said about it, here and elsewhere.

In our latest item for SportingNews.com, we focused on the extent of the trouble in which Taylor finds himself — and we compare and contrast his predicament to an active player who recently has been accused of rape.

We’re also working on another angle regarding the situation that could cause the comments to spark into four figures.

    Hopefully he and OJ can share a cell.

  2. The Real Shuxion says: May 6, 2010 8:32 PM

    He should have gone to Thailand, at worst he would have been branded a weirdo for getting a prostitute over the age of 13.
    …….Geez that joke made me feel really sad.

    Two words: JURY NULLIFICATION!

    If he did it, good, I hope he rots.

  5. KingJoe! says: May 6, 2010 8:40 PM

    If he did have sex with this girl and doesn’t go to jail for a significant period of time, there should be a revolt.

    Arrested – Ben 0, LT 1
    Charged – Ben 0, LT 1
    Rapes – Ben 0, LT 1
    LT wins

    LT is not going to jail. His lawyer simply has to prove that LT did not knowingly engage in sexual intercourse with a minor. Like usual you are up here spreading nonsense. There is no correlation between Roethlisberger and LT. He will end up with a misdemeanor.

  9. BenRoethlisburger says: May 6, 2010 8:46 PM

    “…He also spoke with bizarre pride regarding the fact that he once showed up for a team meeting wearing handcuffs that had been applied to him by not one but two women who were trying out new gadgets.”
    hehe… reminds me a priceless post on the old Patriots “petition” website…:
    Boston Globe;
    Boston police today reported finding a body in the Charles River. The victim apparently drowned due to excessive alcohol consumption. He was described as wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink wig, a strap-on dildo, a Patriot’s jersey, and had a cucumber stuffed up his ass. The police graciously removed the Patriot’s jersey to spare the family unnecessary embarrassment.

    i just wanna know where he got the $300 for the hooker…

  11. Cincinnasty says: May 6, 2010 8:49 PM

    LT situation.. Condom found definitely DNA… The girl was beaten and payed by a pimp… and the worst of all only 16 years old…
    Big Ben situation… No substantial DNA.. The girl was 20 years old… and even if inappropriate things happened the girl was intoxicated to the point that couldn’t be proven..
    BIG FREAKING DIFFERENCE !

  12. Captain_Serious says: May 6, 2010 8:51 PM

    And I’m guessing this angle somehow involves Big Ben Toothlessberger?

  13. Strahan92 says: May 6, 2010 8:52 PM

    If Mike Tyson went to jail for a similiar charge, he should go as well. Take Rapistberger with him.

  14. Beezer says: May 6, 2010 8:55 PM

    Hey Florio,
    maybe he suffered head trauma during his playing career like Roethlisberger and didn’t fully comprehend what he was doing right?

  15. JoeSixPack says: May 6, 2010 8:56 PM

    The question will be what LT knew and when he knew it… and what he was looking for.
    If he knew “what” she was he’s in deep shit.

  16. eaglesnoles05 says: May 6, 2010 8:58 PM

    $ 300 to have sex with a 16 yr old girl, $150 a piece for two 8-balls. 8 + 8 = 16, 150 + 150 = 300… I’m reaching here. Bottom line is the guy likes young girls and coke, and probably like to keep the math in life simple too.

  17. Thor says: May 6, 2010 8:59 PM

    was the girl white? or an illegal immigrant? that’s all I could think would be that controversial.

  18. DanRooney says: May 6, 2010 9:09 PM

    She said n…I’m only 15.

  19. ICDogg says: May 6, 2010 9:10 PM

    Bitch set me up.

  20. Stone says: May 6, 2010 9:27 PM

    It better be about legalizing prostitution or the disparity in the treatment of black vs white people but it damn well better not be a post about LT being a pedophile. LT never hurt a woman in his life, he’s harmless. He’s a drug and alcohol addict with no education, let him be.

  21. ampats says: May 6, 2010 9:32 PM

    Ben Rothlisburger its 9:15PM 3 comments already on this.
    Guess you can’t dispute my comment about you in the below post.
    Get a life!

    Have they actually said for the record that “she” was even human?
    / just asking

  25. chicagosundevil says: May 6, 2010 9:57 PM

    Hey Florio. Nice cross promotion on the sportingnews site.
    Question: Ever think about seriously updating your picture from seven years ago?
    Thanks

  26. LightningLucci says: May 6, 2010 10:38 PM

    If prostitution were legal, this kind of stuff can be reduced through regulation.
    LT could have went to a licensed brothel, where by rule the girls would be of correct age. Often tested, too. This also allows the girl to work voluntarily and more safely without all this pimp-forcing crap.
    Or, LT could really be a gigantic perv who likes his girls young, and he’d still be getting them from an illegal pimp.
    And we’d be able to more quickly judge the difference, too.

  27. bobby says: May 6, 2010 10:40 PM

    Is Dez Bryants father involved (Pimp)?

  28. DocBG says: May 6, 2010 10:49 PM

    the angle played by florio seems to be one that is saying that everything would be okay with this picture if only the girl was of legal age to consent.
    There is a difference between a prostitute and little girl like this that has been taken advantage of, regardless of if she was 15 or 17, or 19. Your asinine lawyer training is comming through a bit here florio, and you had better realize that Florio Jr is probably close to the same age, think about it for a second.

  29. bigstorm says: May 6, 2010 11:17 PM

    Will this prevent the Jets or Bengals from signing him?

  30. Moozie says: May 6, 2010 11:24 PM

    Ohmygod. The Squeeler fans all trying to downplay Ben R. is hilarious. LOL. Yeah, nothing happened…that’s why the chick has bruising and cuts on her snatch. LOL. I know Squeeler fans are of the sub 80 IQ population…but try to be a little more objective. He’s a serial rapist. Admit it, you Squeeler fruitcake bandwagon fraud fans.
    Can’t wait to see LT rot in prison. I’m sure he’ll love there. Child rapist.

  31. Captain_Serious says: May 6, 2010 11:34 PM

    Sorry, @BenRoethlisburger.
    Toothlessberger was a reference to a nickname coined on this here site dating back to when Big Ben’s face failed to convert on 4th down against a windshield.

    Now there’s an excellent idea. And so articulately stated as well!

    well, that pretty much sums up what you’re trying to accomplish…stir up as much shit as possible to try and pimp out your crappy website

  34. clemenza says: May 7, 2010 6:51 AM

    if your in the pro football hall of fame that should always get you laid…….free of charge

  35. Jack in the Jack says: May 7, 2010 6:54 AM

    Joe Theisman sent that hooker to his hotel room to keep him up all night. Payback is a bitch!

  36. CJV123 says: May 7, 2010 7:26 AM

    He’s entitled to as much presumption iof innocence as Mark Chmura got, Chmura being tried in front of an all-trailer-park-fans jury in Green Bay by a prosecutor who tried to lose the case.

  37. Duck Fallas says: May 7, 2010 7:36 AM

    Stay classy New York.

  38. don't know says: May 7, 2010 7:55 AM

    His weazel attorney has this beat easily. Guys like this and (Ben) beat this stuff all the time. NO way would a great guy like LT rape anyone. Everything is a “set up”, everything is “racists”, everything is everyone else’s fault.

  39. Krow says: May 7, 2010 8:19 AM

    Amazing. LT rapes one underage prostitute… and he’s facing prison. Big Ben rapes several underage college kids… and he gets a suspension.
    There must be something I’m missing. On the surface it would seem that Ben should be facing prison time too.
    What could possibly be the difference here?

  40. jackie says: May 7, 2010 8:38 AM

    LT should have one sack taken away from him……

  41. crunched says: May 7, 2010 8:46 AM

    I may be wrong but usually statutory rape is a strict liability charge. This means that what LT knew makes absolutely no difference. If he engaged in sexual relations with someone under the age of 17 – he is guilty. End of story.

  44. Drat says: May 7, 2010 9:47 AM

    I know, i know. I shouldn’t complain about grammar. But Mr. Lightening says “LT could have went to a licensed brothel.” That could-have-went phrase is just one of the most irritating, stupid phrases of all time. Lighthead could have went to school.

    Yes, let’s legalize prostitution so LT doesn’t get into trouble any more. Let’s also legalize crack. And dancing like a buffoon.

  47. UckTheFeagles says: May 7, 2010 10:15 AM

    It’s unfair to compare Roethlisburger to LT.
    …Roethlisburger has a lot more money to get him out of trouble.

  48. Annuvin says: May 7, 2010 10:28 AM

    ***********************
    Probably the fact that a 20 year old is hardly “underage” as 18 is or above the age of consent in all 50 states in the union. Exactly how old did you think you have to be to legally engage in sexual activity in that religious nuthouse you call a country?
    Christ-on-a-stick! Some of the posters here really are dumber than Downs ‘tards.

  49. texasPHINSfan says: May 7, 2010 8:44 PM

    I guess I’ll be in the minority. If he paid money to have sex with a prostitute who told him she’s 19, I don’t think he should be held accountable for the “sex with minor” charges – only prostitution charges.
    You can’t punish the man if the woman lies to him.

  50. robsterNY says: May 9, 2010 2:13 PM

    It seems to me that some of you in here are feeling better about Ben Rapidhumper now that you have LT to kick around …your like a bunch of little boys ….”look at what he did”…Get a life and some moral guidelines. Sick!!!

  51. thebirdofprey says: May 10, 2010 2:30 AM

    I use to come here because the news was faster than other sites now I feel like one of those fools that browse and watch TMZ…The articles are weak, the comments are nearly all given by morons, such a waste of time. Pro Football Talk?? Give me a break….Account deleted.

  52. danlinker says: May 12, 2010 6:05 PM

    I just enjoy that steeler fans have to defend Ben even on the posts regarding LT.
    Love it.
    Must suck to have the word “rape” associated with your favorte team’s qb so often.
