Former Football Player Lawrence Taylor Ruled Low-Risk Sex Offender

Justice or preferential treatment?

Former football star Lawrence Taylor has been declared a low-risk sex offender by the Rockland County Court Judge, meaning that his photo will not be placed on public online sex-offender registries.

Taylor was convicted of soliciting sex from a 16-year-old prostitute in January. He claims he didn’t know her age.

“He would be awfully foolish to go out and do this again,” the judge said. In reference to posting a photo: I don’t see how that’s going to make the public any safer.“

According to standard practices, Taylor should have been designated a level two sex-offender, which would have resulted in his picture being posted. Instead he was designated as a level one.

Would someone who wasn’t an NFL star have gotten the same designation?

Justice or preferential treatment?
