Things continue to look worse and worse for Darren Sharper.
Late last week, police in New Orleans issued an arrest warrant for Sharper—a former cornerback for the Saints—after two women came forward and accused him of sexually assaulting them. That news broke less than two weeks after Sharper was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting two other women in Los Angeles. And to date, women in Miami, Las Vegas, and Tempe, Ariz. have also accused Sharper of sexual assault, though investigations into those allegations are still ongoing.
However, things have taken a turn for the worst for Sharper in the New Orleans case. Because according to a USA Today report, police in New Orleans have learned that Sharper told several witnesses that he and another man named Erik Nunez had sex with two women back on September 23, 2013 without their consent. A police report notes that the two women do not remember having sex with either Sharper or Nunez but that Sharper later admitted that he and Nunez had sex with the women without permission. And police are using this information as the basis of their case against Sharper and Nunez.
Sharper's lawyers are currently arguing that a third-party statement is not enough evidence to charge Sharper with a crime. But this entire situation continues to look bad for Sharper. He has now been suspected of taking part in nine rapes in five different states. And none of the details sound good for him.
Stay tuned, because we're sure there's going to be a lot more news to come out of all of this.
