cuz it's usually the 8th rape accusation that gets you...
NFL Analyst & Former NFL safety Darren Sharper spent the night in a Los Angeles jail after surrendering to police
, following the issue of an arrest warrant in New Orleans for two alleged rapes that occurred in September. If you're keeping count, Sharper is now either charged with or under investigation for eight alleged rapes and one alleged sexual battery, in five different states.
New Orleans police had previously said they were investigating Sharper for the drugging and rape of one woman, but the arrest warrant issued
yesterday says he faces two counts of aggravated rape, for allegedly assaulting two women at his apartment on the same night. The second accuser came forward to police last week.
After the New Orleans warrant was issued, Sharper turned himself in to LAPD at his attorney's office. The charges he faces in California include: two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing a controlled substance, and one count of possession of a controlled substance. If convicted there, he could face 30 years in prison.
He will be charged with two counts of aggravated rape in Louisiana, each of which carry the possibility of life in prison without possibility of parole.
Sharper remains under investigation for other incidents in Tempe, Ariz; Miami Beach, Fla; and Las Vegas.
