Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty; six years' probation, sex-offender status are likely

Lawrence Taylor guilty

Lawrence Taylor, the former NFL football star, pleaded guilty Thursday in New York to two misdemeanors — sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute — and faces an expected sentence of six years' probation with the requirement that he register as a sex offender.

The NFL Hall of Famer, sometime actor and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant, 51, was arrested in May at a New York hotel and initially charged with offenses including third-degree rape of an underage girl.

"She told me she was 19," Taylor said Thursday in court as he admitted having sex with a prostitute who turned out to be a 16-year-old Bronx runaway. He said he now knows the girl was legally incapable of consent. The teen said in May that the beating had come from her pimp.

Prosecutors said the deal was acceptable in part because Taylor had helped with human-trafficking investigations since he was charged; the girl involved had been transported to the hotel by another person.

"This story is so far from his character," Lynette Taylor said around the time of her husband's arrest. Plus, "I know my husband's taste" regarding appearance and activities, she said, and the teen "had nothing to offer him."

Taylor originally pleaded not guilty to third-degree rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child. He'd been resisting a plea deal for months and it seems to have paid off: In December prosecutors said he'd been offered a six-month jail term and 10 years' probation in exchange for pleading guilty to a felony. 

Sentencing is set for March 22, at which time the judge will determine Taylor's sex-offender level. LT's lawyer said he would seek to have his client's probation transferred to Florida, where the former player now lives.

Sex workers in Amsterdam will have to pay taxes this year, the Guardian reports. While prostitution has been legal there for a decade, the government has mostly looked the other way when it came to taxation, until now.
"Agents of the Tax Service will walk through various elements of your business administration with you, such as prices, staffing, agendas and calendars," reads a notice published in an Amsterdam newspaper.
A spokeswoman for the Dutch tax service told the Guardian they started by taxing brothels, and now they're moving on to window prostitutes and their landlords.


My family was military.
As a child during a visit to Washington's state to see my grand parents in the 50's
I fell from a tree and out of my shoulder came a device that looked much like today's rfid glass chip.

When I was six years old there was a big ruckus in the town just above Whitter Ca. with the Welcome Waggon people and
Acorn, where a military officer came out and had me sign papers, offer an oath with my right hand up on the bible and showed me
my dog tags with my name on them, and other things that he mentioned.

The military and prisons have always been used to make men according to themselves because that is what they are taught to believe.

Well we made Saddam Hussein and killed him.
We made Noriega and killed him.

The making of villains and hero's are as fabricated by this process as much as Hollywood would have us all believe that when looking forinformation on Noriega IE:Manuel Antonio we would find a rapper.
IE:wrapper used to cover up the involvement of this complex deception.

The use of leaders in
any nation is based on their ability to control by what ever means not
how much they love the unseen but how effective they are in
controlling the seen, people by what ever means be it the gun or the nun.

Over the years much has happened and people bought that contract at LA High School but now that things have not worked out as they
planned they have discarded what they made again to safeguard there own murderous inclinations.

I have met with military since in SD and have been picked up for envoy too China and other positions in both computer chip tool making and food machine service in many lands and country's

I have a story about current politics that needs addressed that could help if you are serious about ending laws concerning sex because I was fitted with devices.

Even the lady that was doing business there for the welcome wagon said at the time which I did not understand then but do when she said "they want to chase skirts instead of
ambulances. If you haven't noticed, we now have indefinite detention and people are getting life sentences for changing dippers.

It is very important to understand the nature of war too understand the gravity of the situation when I say this was a stared General in our US Army and the sacrifices made on the belief in service to country at the level any soldier would for their country.

The ramification of changing laws by use of information withheld is as much as extortion and the effect of a media office like the FCC being in control of a nation is what, when maybe all you have time too watch is John Stewart or Glen Beck.

Sure we just found out John Wilkes Booth was a patsy and a dried up hand was burred under a football field and no one pays notice. Well we are all on credit now up to our knee caps at 15 trillion dollars or bust?

We have been in the business of war and now we fund both sides while moral grandstanding keeps sounding a charge. Well I charge you with the lie and the story of how America Lost the war on sex.

LT, C'mon man!!!
