Darren Sharper to Serve Prison Time after Pleading Guilty to
Darren Sharper’s legal woes appear to be closer to a resolution after his
lead attorney announced in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday that the former
NFL Pro-Bowl safety had reached a plea agreement that addresses all charges
against him in four states.
Blair Berk, Sharper’s attorney, called the arrangement a “global
resolution,” according to the Los Angeles Times, although terms of the plea
deal were not available. Sharper, 39, has been charged with drugging women and
sexually assaulting them in four different states: California, Arizona,
Louisiana and Nevada.
Sharper has been jailed in L.A. ever since he was charged by the Los Angeles
County district attorney with seven felony counts on Valentine’s Day, 2014.
Grand juries in Tempe, Ariz. and New Orleans returned indictments charging
Sharper with sexual assault and administering dangerous drugs (in the Arizona
case) and aggravated rape and simple rape (in the Louisiana case). On
Wednesday, Sharper was charged with two felony counts of sexual assault in Las
Vegas, according to a criminal complaint.
The L.A. Times reported that Sharper is scheduled to enter a plea in Los
Angeles court Monday.
Clark County (Nev.) District Attorney Steve Wolfson told the Associated
Press that Sharper will still serve “significant time” behind bars.
“We are pleased that Mr. Sharper is accepting responsibility for the crimes
he committed in Nevada,” Wolfson said. “I’m not sure where he’s going to serve
his time, but he’s going to serve significant time.”
