Darren Sharper won’t face charges in Miami

Former NFL safety Darren Sharper remains in jail on charges of rape in California and faces similar charges in Arizona, but he no longer faces them in Florida.

USA Today reports that authorities in Miami said Thursday that Sharper will not face rape charges there, although they left open the possibility of pursuing them again in the future if more evidence comes to light.

“It is one on one allegation. It is a delayed disclosure. The subject has made no admission …  No physical evidence,” the assistant state attorney said in explanation of why they will not be making a case against Sharper. “Inconsistent statements made by the victim regarding knowledge of the people she was with night/morning of the incident as well as her description of the sex itself. No corroborating witnesses, despite detective’s best efforts to locate the people the victim said were present the night/morning of this incident.”

A judge in Arizona recently ruled that Sharper should not be released on bail, a ruling that California is following after a ruling by a judge there. Sharper is expected to be tried initially in California and has also been investigated on similar allegations in New Orleans and Las Vegas.

    I demand Green Bay take down his statue outside of the new mall down town. I think it is horrible to display that!

    I think it’s horrible you want to tear his statue down before he’s convicted of anything.

    Typical cheeseheads.notice how players who play for the packers,patriots and shehawks are always in the news for getting arrested for doing classless things?theres a reason players like Wes welker,Greg Jennings,and golden tate etc…want to leave those environments.

    Typical viking…

    None of this would have happened if he hadn’t signed with the Vikings. They just have a habit of turning good people into sociopaths.

    I heard he called Mark Chmura to get his Attorney’s contact info…Those Packers really stick together.

    Was a good man until he went to the Vikings… They dragged him on to the love boat against his will and tainted his brain. RIP.

    He’s gong to get a lot of jail time just waiting on each of the trials.

    They actually have a statue of him in Green Bay?

  14. bobgb2000 says: May 15, 2014 7:09 PM

    Didn’t know we had a new mall downtown, clue me in.

    So much for Southern justice!

  16. thegonz13 says: May 15, 2014 8:24 PM

    Well, that’s at least one city where he won’t get to see the courthouse…

    He learned it from the vikings and saints not the packers they are a great franchise unlike the loveboat vikings

    Guilty as O.J.

    Darren has never had a problem in Green Bay, he was a model citizen. There is a reason that he didn’t touch any women there, or the fact the Packers do not have cheerleaders…
