Lawrence Taylor: Does The Hall Of Fame Linebacker Just Not "Get It?"
Lawrence Taylor's Statements After Probation Sentencing Continue To Puzzle
Lawrence Taylor dodged a big bullet yesterday when he was given six years of probation, but no jail time for soliciting sex from a 16-year old prostitute.
However, his comments after the sentencing raised some eyebrows.
The report, from ESPNNewYork.com, cites an interview that the former New York Giants linebacker made during an interview with Fox's Shepard Smith in which he made no apologies about what he did or what happened.
""It's the world of prostitution," he said to Fox. "You never know what you're gonna get. Is it gonna be a pretty girl, an ugly girl or whatever it's gonna be."
When asked if it could be a young girl, Taylor said, ""You can only ask. I don't card them. I don't ask for birth certificate."
It seems that Taylor still seems to think he has that cloak of invisibility covering his shoulders or that he is still the best linebacker playing in football because he doesn't want to take responsibility for anything that he has ever done.
Not the drugs or the prostitutes or the prison and probation sentences.
In this case, the prostitute was only 16-years old. The legal age of consent in New York is 17.
Taylor does admit that his biggest problem is with his wife, but to be so nonchalant about everything else speaks volumes about him as a person.
The defendant in this case, known by the initials C.F., claims that she was forced to perform sexual acts and that Taylor should have gone to jail.
Maybe this is just who Taylor is, someone who doesn't believe that he really did anything wrong, someone who thinks of himself as just looking for some entertainment.
But when you stop caring about everything around you, that's when you find yourself in trouble. Like Taylor is in right now.
