Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors and will avoid jail time stemming from rape charges last year.
Taylor admitted to having sex with a prostitute who was a 16-year-old runaway, but he said, “She told me she was 19.” He pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute, both misdemeanors.
He will not go to jail but will have to register as a sex offender and serve six years’ probation.
Taylor was arrested in May at a hotel and charged with third-degree rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child.
The 51-year-old Taylor, who was frequently in trouble with the law during his career with the New York Giants, had previously professed his innocence and turned down a plea deal that would have included jail time.
