Lawrence Taylor pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor sex charges today in connection with his arrest in May for soliciting an underage prostitute.

In return for his plea, the former NFL great will avoid jail time and be subject to six years probation. He must also register as a sex offender.

Taylor pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute.

He was arrested last May outside a New York motel and accused of having sex with a 16-year-old girl police said had been prostituted against her will.

Taylor told the court that the victim told him she was 19.

Police said he had sex, for which he paid $300, with the 16-year-old whom officials said pimp Rasheed Davis had forced into prostitution.

Police later arrested Davis, who pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking. Taylor was originally charged with felony rape in the case.
