I kind of thought that it was pretty much statutory rape if you have sex with a 16 year-old against her will, but then again my 40 time is terrible and I don't have any career sacks for a Super Bowl team.

NEW YORK -- Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor celebrated with a cigar Friday and pledged to concentrate on his "broken life" after a jury rejected a woman's claims that he assaulted her by failing to recognize her distress when he had sex with her in a hotel room when she was 16.

The jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan deliberated for about an hour before siding with Taylor, who appeared relieved as he turned around and gave a thumbs-up to a friend on a court bench behind him. Outside court, Taylor signed a copy of the verdict sheet belonging to his lawyer, Arthur Aidala, and then spoke about his future and his past.

Taylor, who led the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991, said he wanted to go home to Pembroke Pines, Fla., and "concentrate on my own broken life and try to repair that."

Asked to elaborate, he said: "I've done a lot of things I need to address. I look forward to going home."

Outside the courthouse, Taylor, whose post-NFL life has been marred by missteps including drug and tax charges, smoked a cigar. When asked what kind, he said, "Redemption."

The verdict came after a four-day trial in which Taylor testified he had sex with a "very, very pretty" prostitute in 2010 but denied accusations that he ignored obvious signs she was a teen runaway who had been beaten and forced to meet with him. He said she told him she was 19.

The meeting occurred in his room at a Holiday Inn in Montebello, just north of New York, where he paid $300 to Cristina Fierro after the sexual encounter.

Fierro said another man forced her to have sex with Taylor. She said she brought the lawsuit to hold Taylor accountable.

The Associated Press doesn't normally publish the names of accusers in sexual-assault cases unless they agree to be named or identify themselves publicly, as Fierro has done.

Taylor said he regretted that he did not know when he met Fierro about the true circumstances of their meeting.

"I feel for what she has gone through," he said. "At the time, I wasn't a bad person, and if I had known what was going on, I would have helped her. I hope the best for her."

Taylor, who played in the NFL for 13 seasons and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, already had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal charges of sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute and is serving six years of probation.

You're a class act, Lou, and seem to have a really abstract view of the world around you. Many of these women are forced into this lifestyle at ages 12 and 13, should they be blamed for that horrendous circumstance as well?

Pinning blame on the victim isn't a great way to start, and don't pretend for a moment that you know this person's story, you know absolutely nothing about this true circumstances surrounding the situation.

consentual sex is not "rape". The ****ing ho wasn't even a virgin.

The term "statutory rape" is used in some legal jurisdictions to refer to sexual activities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_activities) in which one person is below the age required to legally consent to the behavior.<sup id="cite_ref-ojjdp_0-0" class="reference">[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statutory_rape#cite_note-ojjdp-0)</sup> Although it usually refers to adults engaging in sex with minors (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_%28law%29) under the age of consent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_consent),<sup id="cite_ref-ojjdp_0-1" class="reference">[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statutory_rape#cite_note-ojjdp-0)</sup> it is a generic term, and very few jurisdictions use the actual term "statutory rape" in the language of statutes.<sup id="cite_ref-ovc_1-0" class="reference">[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statutory_rape#cite_note-ovc-1)</sup> Different jurisdictions use many different statutory terms for the crime, such as "sexual assault", "rape of a child", "corruption of a minor", "carnal knowledge of a minor", "unlawful carnal knowledge", or simply "carnal knowledge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnal_knowledge)". In statutory rape, overt force or threat need not be present. The laws presume coercion, because a minor or mentally challenged (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mental_retardation) adult is legally incapable of giving consent to the act.
