How the mighty have fallen. Former NFL all-time great and Dancing With the Stars contestant Lawrence Taylor has officially become a sex offender.

Lawrence pled guilty to a lesser count after being charged with the statutory rape of an underage girl, who he alleged was a prostitute. As part of his deal, the former football player must register as a convicted sex offender for the rest of his life, but he will avoid jail time.
