Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has agreed to 20 years in prison as part of a plea deal on rape charges in New Orleans.
There was outrage after Sharper got off with only nine years in Arizona, but it appears Louisiana will hand down the stiffest sentence of the four states where Sharper has pleaded guilty to drugging and raping women. He'll serve his various sentences concurrently instead of consecutively as part of a "global" plea deal, meaning he could be roaming the streets again in 20 years. Sharper faced up to life in prison just for his charges in Los Angeles, so he's getting off light. Mon, Mar 23, 2015 02:49:00 PM

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper pled guilty to sexual assault and attempted sexual assault in Arizona.

Sharper's plea comes with nine years in prison and lifetime probation, stemming from drugging women at a nightclub before raping them. He also faced similar charges in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Arizona. Frankly, nine years seems short considering the heinous nature and broad scope of his crimes -- but it's worth noting that he's facing a life sentence if convicted of federal rape and drug charges in New Orleans. Sharper, 39, was a five-time Pro Bowler during his 14-year NFL career. He last played in 2010.

One of the best safeties of his era, Sharper has been revealed as a serial rapist in his post-playing days. He allegedly drugs women before sexually assaulting them, and has been in jail in Los Angeles for over a year. The 39-year-old also faces rape charges in New Orleans and Arizona in addition to L.A. and Vegas.

He was indicted on two counts of aggravated rape after he allegedly assaulted two impaired women at his apartment in September 2013. Sharper was additionally charged with simple rape of a different woman from August 2013. Sharper has also been investigated for rape in California, Arizona, Florida, and Nevada.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Renee Korn has again refused to release ex-NFL S Darren Sharper from jail.

Sharper is awaiting trial in L.A. after pleading not guilty to charges that he raped and drugged two women last year. His lawyers feel he should be released and placed under house arrest until he goes to trial. An April 15 hearing has been set. As we've mentioned numerous times, Sharper has sexual assault investigations pending in California, Arizona, Florida, Nevada, and Louisiana.

The details of the Arizona case are not yet known outside of it relating to sexual attacks committed in Tempe in November.

Sharper, 38, is accused of raping nine women and drugging 11 across five states. He was arrested on January 17 by the LAPD but had been free on bond up until this point. The NOPD warrant is for two counts of aggravated rape. Another man, Erik Nunez, 26, has also been arrested in connection to the rapes. If convicted of aggravated rape in Louisiana, Sharper could face life behind bars.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has pled not guilty to rape charges in Los Angeles.

"We look forward to the true facts being revealed in this case, and we are hopeful that Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated before this case is concluded," Sharper's attorney said. Sharper is being investigated on multiple rape claims in as many as five states. Sharper faces more than 30 years in prison if convicted on the Los Angeles charges.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has been charged with drugging and raping two women in Los Angeles.

These are felony charges. Sharper, 38, is accused of raping two women whom he had invited back to his hotel room. He reportedly gave them liquid shots containing Ambien and morphine, causing them to pass out. One woman woke up while Sharper was assaulting her, while the other woke up naked hours later. It's been requested that bail be set at $10 million because Sharper is being investigated for rapes in L.A., New Orleans, Nevada and Arizona. Sharper is currently employed by NFL Network but was suspended without pay last month.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper was arrested Friday on suspicion of rape.

TMZ first reported the news. Profootballtalk has confirmed it. Sharper, 38, has been linked to two sexual assaults -- one in October 2013 and another this month. The former Packers, Vikings, and Saints star was booked at a Los Angeles jail and released on $200K bail. Sharper retired prior to the 2011 season and now works for NFL Network, though probably not for much longer.

Former Saints safety and five-time Pro Bowl selection Darren Sharper plans to retire.

Just about to turn 36 in November, Sharper got a workout with the Broncos in September but there wasn't much interest in him around the league. A member of the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s, it is likely that he follows through on his plan to retire.

The Broncos will try out free agent S Darren Sharper on Tuesday.

This is our first Sharper post since August 27. The Broncos don't need safety help, so they might be doing Sharper's agent a favor. Sharper has little left in the tank after struggling in eight games last year. He turns 36 in November.
Fri, Sep 16, 2011 08:00:00 PM

According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, "don't expect the Saints to bring back (free agent) Darren Sharper."

The Times-Picayune's Mike Triplett believes Jonathon Amaya has earned the Saints' No. 3 safety job behind Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins. Sharper has reportedly been staying in shape, and is still hopeful of playing in what would be his 15th NFL season.
Sat, Aug 27, 2011 12:20:00 PM

The Patriots are scheduled to work out free agent safeties Darren Sharper and Renaldo Hill.

The Boston Globe hears coach Bill Belichick is "desperately" looking for a free safety after losing Jarrad Page to Philly and cutting Brandon McGowan. He's continuing his due diligence since bringing in Dashon Goldson a week ago. Now 35 and coming off an injury-plagued season, Sharper's market never developed.
Sun, Aug 14, 2011 09:38:00 PM

ESPN's Pat Yasinskas believes free agent S Darren Sharper's time in New Orleans could be done.

The Saints' are set at safety with Malcolm Jenkins and newly re-signed Roman Harper. It's unlikely that Sharper would sign on to be a strict backup. Then again, we haven't heard a whiff of any other team showing interest in the 35-year-old.
