In a case we have followed since its inception last May, former New York Giant linebacker Lawrence Taylor pled guilty on January 13, 2011 to 2 misdemeanor charges in the Rockland County Court. Taylor was charged with statutory rape and third degree criminal sexual act after being accused of paying $300.00 for sex with a sixteen year old girl in a Montebello, New York Holiday Inn on May 6, 2010. Taylor was indicted by a grand jury on two felony sexual misconduct charges which carried mandatory 10 years probation.
As a result of a plea of guilty to sexual misconduct under Section 130.20 and third degree patronizing a prostitute under 230.04 of the New York Penal Law, which are both misdemeanors, Taylor will pay a fine of $1,400.00; be on probation for six years; and most significantly, he will be required to register as a sex offender in New York and Florida under Megan’s Law, part of the NYS Correction Law.
Sentencing is on March 22, 2011, when it will be determined what level sexual offender Mr. Taylor is designated.
