Judge: Sharper to remain in California jail
LOS ANGELES - A judge says former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper will remain in a Los Angeles jail now that authorities in Arizona have charged him with sexually assaulting two women.
Superior Court Judge Renee Korn ruled Thursday that the charges filed in Tempe, Ariz., are a valid reason to keep the athlete in custody.
Korn rejected a request by Sharper's attorneys to release him on house arrest.
The 38-year-old Sharper has pleaded not guilty to charges involving the rape and drugging of two women he met in a West Hollywood bar.
He had been released on $1 million bail in the California case but turned himself in after an arrest warrant was issued recently in New Orleans.
He is also under investigation in Florida and Nevada.
Sharper was indicted on Tuesday in Tempe on charges of drugging and raping two women in November.
