Lawrence Taylor was able to avoid prison time for after pleading guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute. The pimp who arranged Taylor’s encounter with a 16-year-old girl wasn’t so lucky.
Rasheed Davis has pleaded guilty and admitted wrongdoing in a plea deal that will likely see him sentenced to somewhere between seven and nine years in prison. The 37-year-old Davis has already spent most of his adult life in prison, stemming from a manslaughter conviction.
“I knew what I was doing was against the law,” Davis told Manhattan Federal Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, per the New York Daily News. “It was my intent to seek some financial gain.”
As part of the deal, Davis will become a registered sex offender — just like Taylor. Davis also agreed to forfeit the 1999 Mercedes Benz he used to bring the girl to Taylor’s hotel room, and the $300 Taylor paid him.
