Now a third woman in Louisiana is accusing the former star of sexual assault.
n the New Orleans matter, a woman contacted New Orleans police in September 2013 alleging Sharper sexually assaulted her. An NOPD spokesperson confirmed that the department received the complaint and launched an investigation.
A statement in response to the I-Team’s request for comment reads: “The NOPD is investigating an allegation of sexual assault filed against Darren Sharper. As with every case alleging sexual assault, information gathered is extremely sensitive and the top priority of the detectives is to protect the person who filed the complaint. Because this is an ongoing criminal investigation, we cannot provide additional information at this time.”
That case remains open and active. Detectives are investigating what is described as a simple rape — or sexual assault — complaint. Officials did not provide any specifics, such as where the incident happened, but sources told WDSU the encounter between Sharper and the alleged victim took place at a private residence in the Warehouse District.
So Sharper is now in trouble with the law for incidents that occurred in September and October of 2013 as well as January of 2014. He’s certainly been busy.
