The Latest: Ex-49er Dana Stubblefield denies raping woman
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The Latest on the rape charges against former San Francisco 49er Dana Stubblefield (all times local):
The attorney for former San Francisco 49er Dana Stubblefield says his client had consensual sex with the woman who accused him of rape.
Attorney Gary Winuk says the 45-year-old former defensive lineman is being unfairly targeted because of his wealth and celebrity.
Winuk says Stubblefield provided prosecutors with lie-detector results and with evidence that shows the sexual encounter last year was consensual.
He says the woman asked his client for a job and money afterward.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced it charged the 45-year-old Stubblefield on Monday with sexually assaulting the woman last year at his Morgan Hill home.
Prosecutors say they have charged former San Francisco 49er Dana Stubblefield with the rape of a ''developmentally delayed'' woman.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office says the 45-year-old Stubblefield was charged Monday with sexually assaulting the woman last year at his Morgan Hill home.
Prosecutors say Stubblefield contacted the then 31-year-old woman on a baby-sitting website and arranged an interview for April 9, 2015, when he assaulted her.
They say that after the assault the woman immediately went to the Morgan Hill Police Department and reported the rape.
Prosecutors say Stubblefield faces five felony counts and a ''substantial prison sentence.''
Bail for Stubblefield is set at $250,000. His arraignment is scheduled to take place within 24 hours.
