Darren Sharper to Plead Guilty to Rape in Four Separate States


CBS Sports reports that former NFL safety Darren Sharper is facing prison time after he reached a plea agreement Friday that will settle rape charges involving at least nine women in four states, according to the Associated Press.

Sharper’s Los Angeles attorney, Blair Berk, said Sharper would enter pleas in the Los Angeles and Phoenix areas on Monday that would resolve allegations there, as well as in New Orleans and Las Vegas.

However, only prosecutors in Nevada provided details to their part of the deal with Sharper. He is expected to plead guilty Tuesday to one felony charge of attempted sexual assault, with the expectation that he’ll face between 38 months and eight years in prison, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson told the Associated Press. He had been previously charged in Nevada with two counts of felony sexual assault, with each carrying a possible 10 years to life.

Wolfson said the Nevada prison term would run concurrent with other sentences in other jurisdictions.

“I’m not sure where he’s going to serve his time,” Wolfson said, “But he’s going to serve significant time.”
