Sharper set for Louisiana court appearance in drug-rape case
NEW ORLEANS (AP) Former New Orleans Saints player Darren Sharper appears close to completing a series of court pleas in four states that will see him serve nine years in prison on drug and sexual assault charges.
Sharper is set for a Louisiana state court appearance Monday in New Orleans. He pleaded guilty in the federal courthouse in that city late last month. And he has pleaded guilty or no-contest to charges in California, Arizona and Nevada.
Each case arose from allegations that the former NFL star drugged and sexually assaulted women. A plea deal involving the four states and the federal court was announced in March.
