Report: Warren Sapp cuts plea deal to resolve prostitution case

Getty Images

Warren Sapp used to make his money by collecting sacks.

Now, he’s saving some money after allegedly throwing a couple of working girls out of the sack.

According to TMZ, the former Buccaneers/Hall of Fame defensive tackle has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, resolving his arrest on prostitution and assault charges in Phoenix during Super Bowl week.

The report says that Sapp will plead guilty to one count of solicitation and one count of assault. To resolve the charges, he has to complete a pair of counseling programs, the “Prostitution Solicitation Diversion Program” as well as an anger management course.

He has apparently already completed the prostitution course (which would lead to the charge being dropped), and is working on completing the other counseling program now.

Sapp has also been ordered to pay restitution to each of the two prostitutes, $150 to one and $1,171.24 to the other.

Considering the fight broke out after Sapp thought he had agreed to terms for $300 for each of them — before everybody got naked — and then an argument erupted, that’s a stiff fine.

But considering he has already lost his job over the sordid affair, cutting this deal might allow him to clear his name soon.

Such that anyone’s ever going to forget this one.

  1. That may be the most perfect picture/article pairing in this site’s history…

  2. How can one forget when you continually use every opportunity to write about it. If one didn’t know any better one would think you’re intentionally trying to sully his name forever. It’s the world’s oldest profession for a reason. Don’t act like Sapp is the only man whose paid to have his fantasies fulfilled. Who knows how many hear have done and are doing the same. How many of you have gone to strip clubs with the idea it’s only good fun? It’s paying for a sexual service to see a naked woman perform for you. Stop the hypocritical madness already.

  3. Man it’s good to at least see an NFL player with some integrity that is willing to do the right thing after being caught red handed.

    But its not the boston patriot way thats for sure smh.

  4. I wonder what formula the court used in determining that one got $150 and the other got exactly $1,171.24.

  5. Feel bad for him…They told him once price then tried to jack up the price on him. Typical move and thats why you never pay upfront…

  6. Man it’s good to at least see an NFL player with some integrity that is willing to do the right thing after being caught red handed.

    gotta love kidz that blubber on every page about the same thing.

    Cheer up slugger and get yourself a hanky…

  7. There’s a good chance Isaiah Thomas hires him because 300 plus 150 plus 1171 is still a lot less than 11.6 mil for not even getting naked

  8. Well, if the NFL is really worried about protecting their image they should never give Sapp a press pass or allow any employees of the NFL to have direct contact with Warren Sapp, essentially never allowing Sapp to be part of the NFL again. Yet, we know the NFL wont follow their own polices.

  9. Some people have one chance in life, some others have two, some others are Warren Sapp and still manage to blow that. What a gigantic turd.

    Steve they simply used the “Tour Thailand” guide book for the correct pricing of the service in question and then adjusted for the currency exchange; then add cab fair

  11. I am not a fan of his, or for that fact, Irvin, the guy he sat next to. But i dont believe that the prostitution thing is a big deal. Should be legal in all 50 states!

  12. “Before everybody got naked — and then an argument erupted, that’s a stiff fine.”

    Girls probably almost PUKED!

  13. NFL Network is really bad. They could use some pointers from the MLB Network. The MLB boys are actually prepared and do their jobs very well.

  14. If he bought unlicensed assault rifles out of the back of some rusty Ford pickup in a Phoenix, Walmart parking lot – nothing would have happened.

    Get caught committing a non-violent adult act with two other consenting adults – bye bye lucrative career.


  15. What a Sapp. I hope the $1321.24 was worth it. Well, I guess you just had to use that buy 1 get 1 free hooker coupon. Was it worth getting fired? Then again the women had to be pretty “hard up” to do it with you.

  16. So the prostitutes still got paid although accomplices in an illegal act? One at nearly 4 times the “negotiated” fee.

  17. Was at a Roy Jones Jr. boxing match in Tampa several years ago and Sapp was sitting about 5 or 6 rows deep in ring side seats. A guy walked up and obviously asked for a picture or autograph and Sapp, with his baby daughter on his lap, erupted in a sting of vulgarities that was absolutely ridiculous. I was a fair distance away and could still hear this loud mouth idiot screaming. So the whole being arrested for prostitution thing, could not possibly have happened to a better person. Hope he never earns another nickel from the public for his efforts on the football field.

  18. Surprised he didn’t argue to have the totals reduced by the $300 already tendered!! Was the prostitution class done online or in person?

    Prostitution is legal everywhere: It’s called MARRIAGE. Our legal system is stupid.

    I’d like to thank those two young “ladies” for helping get Sapp off of TV. On behalf of a grateful nation I commend you.


    Can someone please introduce these two ladies to Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders.

  21. So, to save a thousand bucks on a re-negotiating hooker, instead of just paying her and learning THAT lesson, he cost himself $5-$10 MILLION bucks in the long run with his deal with the NFL Network and promotional deals (like those Bud Light ads) … not a smart man.

  22. Can we send these same prostitutes over to a few other ex-jock talking heads on TV. Getting one marble-mouth off the air was a good use of the criminal justice system. Let’s make it two.

  23. This guy has always been a piece of garbage.
    Regardless of his playing career, he’s never been anything but a large piece of garbage.
    Just look at how he bad mouthed the Raiders after picking their pockets by being a nothing on the field for them.
    I wouldn’t pee on him if he was on fire.

    Straight trash, always has been.

  24. Hopefully, he winds up waiting on tables and tips for his survival. I doubt it though, life just isn’t that fair.

    Thanks for sharing that personal encounter story. I always heard Warren Sapp was a jerk but I imagine there are countless like that. Next get Jamie Dukes, Michael Irvin and Patriot jock riding Willie Mcguinest off air and NFL Network will be getting somewhere

  26. The stiffest part of Sapp’s penalty was not levied (directly) by the state. His career and any possible endorsements just took a killshot. Can he recover? Well, Ray Lewis did — so it’s possible, but it’s not looking too good at the moment.

  27. Yet again we see our wonderful multi level justice system at work… I despair for the future!!!!

  28. Surprised the judge didn’t also force Sapp to perform a few hundred hours of community service…travel around, meeting with other prostitutes and lecturing on the dangers of their profession.

    I would love to see what the teacher is wearing at the prostitution class.

    He wears a sheriff’s uniform.

  30. $150 for one and $1171.24 for the other.

    I know which hooker i’d like to meet.

  31. Sapp is FLAT broke! What a shame!! Hall of Famer, STUD on the field. Warren u know better, we all know you have done this plenty of times. Bet u wish u paid the asking price of those two gals.

  32. It’s hard to tell what’s funnier – the article or the comments of our esteemed fans. What distresses me though is this morally and talent bankrupt cartoon character is likely to find his way back into the entertainment business; oh the horror!

  33. Maybe he will get his own TV reality show, “Hanging with Warren Sapp”?

  34. Was looking for a follow-up after the “stiff” fine line, but you left me – hangin’.

  35. “Prostitution Solicitation Diversion Program”, or

    If P stands for prostitution, S could stand for Sapp, and DP could stand for, well, DP. Put it together and what have you got?

  36. “If Michael Irvin could clear his name and rep after the drugs and”Dallas White House” issues then Warren can. He just needs to find GOD.”

    What makes you think he hasn’t? God is supposedly everywhere and in all things.

  37. Just curious. How does the court order restitution to someone for services rendered when the legal system views those services as illegal?

  38. Sapp has ALWAYS been a morally bankrupt low life .. yet NFL network thinks he’s just fine to represent them..(you have sander & Irvin, too good grief) who’s interviewing for opening? ray rice?

  39. Force him to change his name to ‘Guilty John’ Sapp.

    Then, we might be assured of never seeing him in a football related TV studio ever again.

  40. people love to forgive their football heroes. Sapp will be back in the fold on the NFL Network doing “U know it” with Michael Irvin in no time. They will even make fun of it on tv mark my words.

    Not sure which is worse, Sapp or Big Ben…
    That’s pretty easy. Big Ben is the one who allegedly paid to have rape charges go away – more than once. When you do something sexually to someone that they don’t want done to them … that’s rape.

    In Sapp’s case, there’s no debate about whether sex was going to be consentual. The fight was about pricing. You’d think Sapp would have understood the concept of a player wanting to renegotiate her contract, but apparently he didn’t.

    I couldn’t stand Warren Sapp as a commentator/analyst on TV and I’m glad I’m not subjected to him anymore. But, if he’d been in a legal brothel where business agreements are above board and settled professionally, this incident doesn’t happen. And why is prostitution a worse crime than weed?
