Lawrence Taylor: Sex offender, gets 6 years probation

From Hall of Famer to Sex Offender. Not exactly the extra title that former NY Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor wanted to have.

But have it he does.

Taylor was sentenced today after being caught sleeping with a teenage runaway, back in May of 2010. The official charge: patronizing a prostitute and sexual misconduct. He will be on probation for the next 6 years and will be officially labeled a sex offender, though a hearing is still scheduled to determine the level and whether or not he has to register.

It's a sad downfall for Taylor, who seemed to be getting his affairs in order coming off an appearance a couple of years ago on the TV Show, Dancing with the Stars. However the incident seemed to bring out the seedy side to the former star.

According to reports, Taylor had apparently called someone to arrange for the 17-year old to be brought to him in a Rockland County hotel. That's where they were busted.

His lawyer, today in court, apparently apologized to the girl, Taylor's family and fans in court. Taylor didn't say a word. The lawyer also said "He never wanted to tarnish his image". "Mr. Taylor readily accepts responsibility."

Really. He comes off, still, as an overage horn-dog. Trying to pay for a young girl to meet him at a hotel. Really? That's the best you can do? You should consider yourself lucky you aren't in jail. And his wife, should be checked mentally for ever having anything to do with him again.
