Lawrence Taylor on Soliciting Prostitutes, Registering as a Sex Offender

L.T. was sentenced yesterday to six years probation for “sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute.” Following the sentencing, L.T. opened up to Shepard Smith on “Studio B.”

Smith didn’t hold much back and asked if Taylor told his friend to find him somebody (a prostitute), which caused the former NY Giants linebacker to go into a rant about prostitution.

“It’s the world of prostitution. You never know what you’re going to get,” he said. “If it was going to be a pretty girl, ugly girl.” L.T. continued: “It’s not that I solicit prostitutes often. Yes, I have been around for a lot of years. I’ve been in New York for a lot of years,” he said. “I’m not looking for a relationship. I don’t want a relationship. Sometimes I look for some company.”

The quote of the interview came during the rant, when Taylor commented: “I’m not saying it’s right, but it’s the oldest profession in the world,” he said.
