NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) – Former NFL star Lawrence Taylor has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of sexual misconduct and patronizing a prostitute.

The 51-year-old ex-linebacker will get no jail time following his plea Thursday.

Taylor was arrested in May at a suburban New York hotel. He was accused of having sex with a 16-year-old prostitute who turned out to be a Bronx runaway.

He previously had pleaded not guilty to third-degree rape, patronizing a prostitute, sexual abuse and endangering a child.

He had been resisting a plea deal for months.

Taylor led the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991.
