Lawrence Taylor gets six years on probation for sexual misconduct

Posted on

Football legend and former Dancing With the Stars contestant Lawrence Taylor was sentenced to six years on probation for having sex with an underage prostitute, according to the Associated Press. Taylor was arrested May 6, 2010 and was initially charged with third-degree rape. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges in January. The 17-year-old girl, who denies being a prostitute, appeared at Taylor’s sentencing and said afterward that Taylor deserved to go to jail. Her lawyer did not indicate whether her client intended to sue Taylor.
