HARTFORD - Former New York Giant Lawrence Taylor was sentenced to six years probation today in connection with his sexual misconduct case.

Taylor pleaded guilty in January to sexual misconduct and having sex with an underage prostitute in May 2010.

The former football star says the girl told him she was 19 at time and that he paid her $300.

A hearing will be held on April 12 to determine what sex-offender level he will be assigned.
