HipHollywood has learned that former NFL star, Darren Sharper will be arraigned in a Los Angeles court room today after being charged with two counts of rape.
The 38-year-old was arrested on January 17, 2013 after being “linked to two sexual assaults in west Los Angeles,” one in October 2013 and January 2014. The former New Orleans Saints player denied all allegations, but admitted after his arrest to having sex with one of the accusers, claiming it was mutual.
Sharper posted bail at $200,000 and was ordered to appear in court today.
The Miami, Florida native’s 14-year NFL career came to an end in 2011 after suffering an injury during his last two years with the Saints. Following his retirement, Sharper became an analyst for the NFL Network, but was suspended without pay following the arrest.
