Darren Sharper's History of Drugging and Raping Women Exposed

Back in January former NFL star Darren Sharper was arrested on suspicion of rape for two different women [click here if you missed that].

During his arraignment an ugly pattern of drugging and raping women emerged...

Darren appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday where he was charged with two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance.

During his bail hearing the prosecutor filed a motion to have Darren's bail increased to $10 million and disclosed he was under investigation for drugging and raping at least five other women, two of them in one night.

From the NY Post
After conferring with police in other jurisdictions, Maccharella said in the bail motion that the first assault followed an event for New Orleans Saints football players on Sept. 22, 2013.
Maccharella said he was told a woman went to a New Orleans bar with Sharper, consumed an alcoholic beverage provided by him and blacked out. She awoke the next morning while being sexually assaulted, the bail motion stated, noting that an exam later showed Sharper’s DNA was present.
The Los Angeles charges were based on incidents on Oct. 30, 2013, and Jan. 14, 2014, beginning at a West Hollywood nightclub. Sharper allegedly met two women each time, invited them to a party then said he had to stop at his hotel.
In the October incident, each woman was given a shot of an alcoholic beverage before blacking out, and one later awoke to find the other being sexually assaulted, the charging documents state.
In January, a woman awoke and suspected she had been assaulted, the documents state.
Similar scenarios played out on Jan. 15 in Las Vegas and on Nov. 20, 2013, in Arizona, the bail motion states.
Court documents indicate Darren drugged his dates with Ambien and morphine. The next court date is scheduled for Feb. 20.

Darren Sharper is facing 30 years in state prison if convicted on the charges in L.A..
