The case against former NFL safety Darren Sharper is scheduled to move forward in a California court on Wednesday.
Sharper is charged with drugging and raping two women in Los Angeles last October and the Associated Press reports that there will be a hearing on Wednesday to determine if there is sufficient evidence for Sharper to stand trial. Sharper was originally held on $1 million bail, but a judge ruled that he should be held without bail after he was indicted on similar charges from November in Arizona.
Wednesday’s court schedule is also expected to include a hearing on whether Sharper should be extradited to Arizona to face the charges in that state before any trial in California. Authorities in Louisiana, Florida and Nevada have also investigated Sharper for alleged sexual assaults, but he has not been charged in any case.
Sharper pleaded not guilty to the charges in California and has denied the other allegations as well.
