Football hall of famer Lawrence Taylor dodged a legal bullet Tuesday when a New York State judge allowed him to stay off the state’s on-line sex offender registry; however, in his home state of Florida, he wasn’t as lucky, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Despite a ruling in his favor in New York, authorities in Florida have put Taylor’s mug on the Sunshine State’s sex offenders website. Taylor and his family live in the South Florida city of Pembroke Pines.
Former Dancing With The Stars fave Taylor, 52, pled guilty to two counts, sexual misconduct and soliciting a prostitute, in January and was sentenced to six years probation in Florida. The former NFL star must register for 20 years as a sex offender.
New York Judge William Kelly ruled that Taylor was not a threat to public safety and that it wasn’t “likely” that he would repeat his crime. Conditions of Taylor’s probation are that he must abide by a 1am curfew. Unlike other sexual offenders, Taylor is allowed to be near schools and playgrounds because he has young children himself.
The former New York Giants’ sack artist was arrested last May after a 16-year-old girl and her pimp were taken into custody. She claimed that she was forced by the pimp to go to Taylor’s hotel room, where he paid her $300 for sex.
