August 18, 2016

On Thursday former NFL Pro Bowler Darren Sharper was sentenced to 18 years, 4 months and a $20,000 fine. Monday Sharper pleaded "no contest" in court to six counts, including charges of drugging and raping two women in October 2013 and January 2014. Raping as many as 16 women in four states. Sharper has been in jail without bail since February 27, 2014. The initial sentence was 9 years, but Judge Jane Triche Milazzo rejected the multistate plea agreement, saying the sentence was too short. The former Super Bowl champion played 14 seasons in the NFL, drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the second round. Winning a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints. Ironically Sharper is eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame this year, he has been removed from the college Hall of Fame. Finished his career with 63 interceptions. Sharper's voice thickened and broke as he said he apologized "a thousand times" to the women he abused and to his family and friends. He said"They didn't deserve anything being a part of my heinous decisions," he said sobbing. "I still don't know why I lived my life right for 38 years, and then I took this path."Now Sharper will be spending 18 years of his life in federal prison.
