Darren Sharper reaches new plea deal

AP

After a judge rejected a plea bargain that would have put former NFL safety Darren Sharper behind bars for nine years for drugging and raping nine women in four different states, Sharper and prosecutors have struck a new deal.

Via Brent Schrotenboer of USA Today, the terms of the revised agreement weren’t disclosed. Obviously, it calls for more than nine years. The new agreement also surely requires Sharper to cooperate in the prosecution of two co-defendants, since the last agreement contained that term.

A hearing will be held March 17 on the new agreement, with trial for co-defendants Brandon Licciardi and Erik Nunez due to begin May 16. The judge could still reject the new deal, in the same way the judge rejected the prior deal.

Sharper played for the Packers, Vikings, and Saints. He allegedly committed rapes in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Louisiana following his retirement; at the time of some of the incidents, however, he was working for the league as an analyst on NFL Network.

  1. Can we all agree that Darren Sharper is much worse than Tom Brady? In fact, I think that many of you would even go so far as saying he is a worse person than Rodger Goodell.

    Seriously, 9 years for what he did……Thankfully, a Judge said “no way” and made them go back to the drawing board. I hope the deal is for 15 years to serve, minimum.

  2. Who drafted this guy? Once a Packers will always be one. WI is a terrible state to begin with. Once you put in that awful green n cheese, you can’t turn back to black or white.

  3. How a serial rapist could only get anything other than life in prison shows there’s a giant flaw in the legal system.

  4. Was a joke that he was only getting 9 years to begin with after reading what he did!!

  5. Allegedly?????? At what point is it no longer alleged he did this when he’s cutting deals for a reduced sentence. Time to stop protecting the guilty.

  6. Everyone knows you don’t “rehabilitate” a serial rapist. Nine years is a joke.

    The NFL allowing Sharper’s HOF eligibility makes a mockery of their own image rehab concerning violence against women.

  7. What a shame.

    You can take the player out of Green Bay.

    But you can’t take the Green Bay out of the player.

  8. Sharper was a model citizen in Green Bay, but then his life took a terrible turn when he descended into the degenerate abyss known as MN. He’s never been the same.

    Well, yeah! Green Bay ain’t exactly the dating capitol of the world, not even on farmersonly.com. Still single, eh Filthy?

  10. When you sign up to play for the purple and yellow, you’re going to rape women or beat defenseless children, all while getting cheers from the locals.

    Facts.
