According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, court filings indicate that former NFL safety Darren Sharper is suspected of committing seven rapes and 11 druggings that allegedly occurred in California, Arizona, Los Angeles and Louisiana.
The filings Friday included a narrative by a Los Angeles Police Department detective of the cases in other states, including New Orleans, in which Sharper is suspected of additional drugging-rapes. The filing revealed that analysis of the rape kit in the New Orleans case found Sharper’s DNA in the alleged victim.
Authorities in L.A. asked Judge Roberto Longoria to raise Sharper’s bond from $200,000 to $10 million, but the judge postponed ruling on the request until Sharper’s arraignment Feb. 20. In the meantime, Longoria ordered Sharper to surrender his passport and remain in Los Angeles.
Of course Sharper’s lawyer believes his client will be cleared of all charges.
“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,” Berk told The Los Angeles Times. Berk has represented several celebrities, such as Cee Lo Green and Halle Berry.
It sounds like Sharper went from being an NFL star to a serial rapist.
