Lawrence Taylor - Lawrence Taylor Pleads Guilty But Avoids Prison

LAWRENCE TAYLOR, the NFL Hall of Famer who went on to appear in a number of Hollywood movies including OLIVER STONE's 'Any Given Sunday' and 'The Waterboy', has pleaded guilty to misdemeanour charges and must now register as a sex offender, reports Reuters. The charges relate to Taylor having sexual relations with an underage girl.
Taylor, a former line-backer for the New York Giants, is expected to avoid jail as part of a plea bargain which will see him cooperating with prosecutors in their probe of the trafficking of underage women in the New York area. The 51-year-old was arrested following an incident at the Holiday Inn in Montebello last year, and he pleaded guilty yesterday (13th January 2011) to one count of sexual misconduct and one count of patronising a prostitute. He is expected to be sentenced on 22nd March 2011 where he faces up to six-years' probation and a $2,000 fine. District Attorney THOMAS ZUGIBE said in a statement, "Behind the celebrity, this case is really about the indifference shown by this defendant toward a troubled, young woman forced into a life of prostitution".
Taylor, who won two Super Bowl titles with the Giants, became a film and television personality after retiring from the game. He appeared as himself in the award winning HBO series THE SOPRANOS and voiced the character of 'B.J Smith' in the 2002 video game 'Grand Theft Auto: Vice City'.
