No Plea Deal Reached In Lawrence Taylor Case

Former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor has already pleaded not guilty to charges of rape, criminal sexual act and sexual abuse as well as endangering the welfare of a child and patronizing a prostitute.

He appeared in Rockland County Courthouse on Thursday for what some thought was to strike a plea deal. Not the case, his lawyer says.

Defense attorney Arthur Aidala said this afternoon outside the Rockland County Courthouse that Taylor would not accept an agreement that brings 10 years probation, which would be mandatory if he pleaded guilty to the felony charges in the case.

Taylor didn't have a comment for reporters on the way out and his next court date is Dec. 7. It appears he's headed for trial. The Rockland DA said Wednesday that they have discussed a six-month jail sentence and 10 years probation in a plea deal.
