Ex-NFL player Darren Sharper charged with rape in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS - Rape charges have been filed in Las Vegas against former NFL safety Darren Sharper, who already faces sexual assault charges in Los Angeles, New Orleans and the Phoenix area.
Sharper's Las Vegas attorney, David Chesnoff, appeared Friday before a Las Vegas judge on two sexual assault charges involving two women in January 2014. Details of the allegations weren't immediately available.
Chesnoff says Justice of the Peace Janiece Marshall set a court hearing for April 3.
The 39-year-old Sharper is jailed in Los Angeles, where he's scheduled for a preliminary hearing Friday after pleading not guilty to drugging and raping two women in 2013.
Sharper retired in 2010 after a 14-year All-Pro as a defensive safety with the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints.
