Even if you take NFL legend Lawrence Taylor at his word about merely masturbating in front of a 16-year-old girl and not having relations with her, that’s still shady.

It’s also still criminal behavior.

Taylor’s rape defense he could still mean ending up a registered sex offender.

Which makes sense. It’s not as if it absolves him of wrongdoing in the situation. After all, the former New York Giant is accused of patronizing an underage hooker.

If a jury does buy Lawrence’s expected argument, that he pleasured himself in front of the girl but did not have sex with her, he would qualify as a sex offender.

LT may be the football Hall of Fame’s first registered sex offender.

He could be forced to register as one, too. LT’s defense team is aware of this, and his lawyers are doing “everything possible to keep LT off the sex offender registry.”

Taylor was arrested and charged earlier this month for his encounter with the teenage prostitute in a New York State Holiday Inn. This is pretty sickening stuff.

Taylor says she said she was 19.  Legally, that matters not. She’s 16.

The incident with LT surfaced as a result of the hooker’s violent fight with her pimp, Rasheed Davis, who allegedly smacked her around a bit around that time.
