Ex-NFL safety and now serial rapist, Darren Sharper, was sentenced to 20 years in prison today. This sentencing comes right on the heels of multiple accusers coming forward against Sharper. Sharper has been accused of rape in California, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Tempe, AZ. According to the New Orleans Advocate, reportedly at least 16 people came forward accusing Sharper of rape.
In March of last year, Sharper pleaded guilty and no contest to two counts of rape and later pleaded guilty to raping at least 9 women. Sharper’s first sexual assault in Los Angeles happened in October of 2013, with the second happening in January of 2014. Both instances involved two different pairs of women, where Sharper invited them back to his hotel room after meeting at a nightclub. Sharper then gave drinks that were laced with a sedative to the women, and then committed the assault.
Earlier this year, Sharper was sentenced to 18 years by a federal judge for his rapes involving the victims of the four states. Originally, prosecutors had tried to negotiate a multiple jurisdiction plea deal that suggested Sharper serve a nine-year prison sentence. However, this deal was rejected for being too lenient. Sharper’s two sentences will run at the same time as each other. He must also be registered as a sex offender for life once he is out of prison.
“I can only imagine myself lying there like a vegetable while he took advantage of my body without my permission. I have lost every bit of self-confidence I’ve ever had and am always in fear while alone. It doesn’t matter whether it’s day or night, I can see a guy and automatically in my head think, ‘What if this guy tries to rape me?’”
Sharper retired from the NFL in 2011 after a 14-year career and recently became eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame. After his football career, Sharper became an NFL Network analyst. A Super Bowl Champion and Pro Bowler, Sharper will now be known instead for his crimes of rape and his sex offender status.
