Lawrence Taylor just pled guilty to two misdemeanor charges as part of one helluva plea deal in his statutory rape case — and will get off with no jail time but will have to register as a sex offender.

The NFL Hall of Famer was in court in Rockland County, NY … and pled guilty to one count of patronizing a prostitute and one count of sexual misconduct — all stemming from his arrest last May for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Taylor was originally charged with a felony … and could have gotten 4 years in prison. Instead he’ll get probation — but as part of the plea deal he has to register as a sex offender. Taylor has homes in Florida and New Jersey.

We’re standing by for a news conference outside the courthouse.
