Sharper Agrees to Plea Deal with Four States
He’s getting a serious timeout. Ex-NFL All-Pro Darren Sharper has taken plea deals in four states that, combined, will likely carry more than a decade of prison time. The 39-year old former Packer, Viking, and Saint has been in a Los Angeles jail since February 2014, after pleading not guilty to drugging and raping two women using the sedative Zolpidem. An Arizona judge has sentenced him to nine years. A California judge is expected to announce his sentence later today, followed by Nevada and Louisiana.
