NEW CITY, N.Y. - Former football star Lawrence Taylor has been sentenced in New York to six years on probation after a judge refused to allow a teenage prostitute to speak.

The ex-New York Giants football star pleaded guilty in January to sexual misconduct and having sex with the underage prostitute.

The girl, now 17, appeared in court with well-known attorney Gloria Allred.

Allred said the girl waned to read a victim-impact statement.

But the judge said victims are entitled to speak only at felony sentencings.

Taylor pleaded guilty to misdemeanors.

Taylor will also have to abide by the conditions of a sex offender.

But the judge postponed until April 12 the hearing to determine what level of sex offender will be assigned to him.
