Darren Sharper connected to total of seven rapes in four states

LOS ANGELES — Prosecutors charged former NFL safety Darren Sharper on Friday with raping and drugging two women in California and disclosed he is under investigation in connection with five more drug-related rapes in three other states.

Sharper briefly appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court, where his arraignment was postponed until Feb. 20 at the request of his lawyers. They issued a statement saying he would be exonerated.

Prosecutors then filed a motion to increase Sharper's bail to $10 million and outlined details of investigations involving him in Las Vegas, Tempe, Ariz., and New Orleans.

Sharper has not been charged in the other jurisdictions.

In the bail motion, Los Angeles County Investigator John Maccharella described a pattern in which the former football star met women at clubs or parties and lured them to a hotel room, where they were allegedly drugged and raped.

The motion says the incidents happened in the past five months, with two occurring within a day in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Investigate.

If appropriate, file charges and provide a fair trial with due process.

If guilty, incarcerate 6 feet under the prison encased in a block of solid concrete.

So a football star can’t get laid unless he drugs and rapes?

(Just in case anyone thought rape was all about sex and nothing about violence)

I remember Jim Brown being charged with rape several times.

He always paid them off or at least that is the only reason I can figure out why the charges were always dropped.

How do you “lure” a woman you meet in a club/bar to your hotel room? In my experience, women you meet in a club who go to your hotel room are happy to join you.

Furthermore, although there are exceptions to the rule most women who go to a guy's hotel room after meeting in a bar or club generally intend to have sex.

This guy is a special kind of dirt-bag. There was probably some other things going on most women wouldn't agree with.

An NFL player... he’s really gotta be messed up, since athletes usually get the babes willingly.

At least he wasn't razzing his teammates and snapping them with wet towels in the locker room.

Doesn’t make sense to me; if he has already got them to come to his hotel room it is almost a forgone conclusion that they will willingly have sex with him, why bother drugging them?

If for whatever reason they decline to have sex, so what a short trip back to the bar and pick up another girl.

Maybe he is a little bit of a perv and only likes girls that lie there like a corpse.

Morphine and Ambien? Where the heck was he getting morphine ... lucky he didn't kill somebody:

During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially excessive or prolonged CNS and respiratory depression.

More evidence of the character-building inherent in the sport. I grew up watching and playing it, so I’m an addict, but I’m not sure the nation wouldn’t be better off one day having baseball and basketball as the only national sports.

There are any number of women willing to jump in bed with this guy for the price of a night on the town and a chance at getting half his stuff in a divorce.

I agree with your sentiments, but today the NFL playbook(s) have become so complex that NFL coaching staffs are looking for a LOT more intelligent players. Indeed, that's why NFL scouts are going a lot more to colleges like Stanford, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Duke, and so on, since they know players from these schools probably stand a better chance to master today's highly-complex playbooks. And football players who attend these schools are definitely way less of the "dumb jock" stereotype of the past, and tend to be more well-adjusted in terms of personal life.

He was working for the NFL network on one of their round table talking head shows until this came out. Pretty articulate guy, smooth talker - apparently a ladies man, too.

First let me say the guy is creep and no one but him is responsible or at fault for these rapes.

However I'm reminded of the old fuddy-duddy, old fart, out of touch, traditions that our modern hip societies dispensed with over the past 30-50 years. In the olden days, a single woman simply didn't go to a hotel room with a single man unescorted -- no matter who the man was or how upstanding his reputation was. 6000 years of human history taught us, that it's just NOT A GOOD IDEA for a young woman to find herself in close proximity to a young man's bed. No one will say it aloud any more, but we all have to admit that most of those old traditions were based on thousands of years of sound and proven reasoning.

And for those who will gasp and say that I'm blaming these girls for their own assaults, let's get that out of the way right now. No I'm not. I hope they lock up the filthy animal and throw away the key.

They failed to mention that the player is also a democrat, and I might add a Obama supporter..

And those colleges are generally having a lot more gridiron success than a generation ago.

But as the Vanderbilt rape scandal showed, smart does not always equate to good behavior. Still, I totally agree with you that in general the more intelligent and academically diligent will be more well-adjusted.

Amen! A lot of stupid girls out there these days. And animals like this are just waiting to take advantage of them.

I am always profoundly astounded when I see a news story about some young woman who has been reported as missing after leaving a bar alone.
