Lawrence Taylor's Agent Hopes LT Can Do 'Productive Things'

Anyone who remember the great player New York Giants Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor was -- quite possibly the best defensive player ever -- has to be saddened by the mess Taylor has made of his life. Taylor was sentenced earlier this week to six years probation and forced to register as a sex offender pleading guilty in January to charges sexual misconduct and patronizing a 16-year old prostitute.

In the wake of the sentencing Taylor's agent, Mark Lepselter, spoke with Sid Rosenberg on WQAM in Miami to discuss the case and Taylor's future. Sports Radio Interviews has the full transcript. Taylor, of course, has a checkered past filled with drug abuse and issues with the law. It seemed in recent years that the legendary Giant had put much of that behind him, but Taylor is once again faced with rebuilding his life. Lepselter was not specific, but he hinted that money is an issue for Taylor.

"You want to put it behind you and you want to be able to move forward with your life in whatever capacity the legal system will allow you to do so," Lepselter said. "That being said, it’s a tough situation for Lawrence. Business has not been booming. We’re hoping he can get to a certain level here having this behind him and than start to do some constructive and productive things to make him some money."
