An Eye Witness News 7 (ABC) truck with the Dish on top drove by me while I was running errands lunch time today.  Why was ABC News in our little town? What was going on?

Clicked on Yahoo and found out. Larry Taylor – Hall of Fame Linebacker pleaded guilty.

The former New York Giants great will serve six years probation as part of the agreement, which saw him plead guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute. He will have to register as a sex offender.

In court, Taylor admitted to having sex with a prostitute who ended up being a 16-year-old runaway. “She told me she was 19,” he said.

Ignorance of a victim’s age isn’t a defense in a third-degree rape case.

Why did he do it?  Why did he end up in a local motel?  Why are these guys so stupid?

Edit 1-23-11: I happened to catch the end of The Blind Side, great movied.  BUT now it has been tainted.  It opens and closes with reference to Lawrence Taylor – did not realize until that moment – that they were one in the same.  What an idiot.
