Lawrence Taylor Jr., son of Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor, will spend the next 10 years in prison after a plea deal on statutory rape and child molestation charges. Taylor was actually sentenced to 30 years in prison but will be eligible for release in ten.
Taylor took the plea just before his trial was set to start on Monday in Cobb County, Georgia.
The 33-year-old Taylor was accused of sexually assaulting two 13-year-old girls in 2012 and 2013.
Lawrence Taylor Sr., who played for the Giants from 1981 to 1993, has had his own legal issues, including a guilty plea to charges of patronizing a prostitute and sexual misconduct in connection with an encounter with an underage sex worker.
