Sharper's attorneys to question Arizona evidence
PHOENIX, AZ- Lawyers for former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper will return to a Phoenix courtroom Thursday to question the evidence being used to keep him in jail without bail on charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted two women.
A judge began a hearing on the subject Wednesday, and it's expected to conclude Thursday.
The hearing is the latest development in several ongoing sexual assault investigations involving Sharper in Louisiana, California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada.
Bail in Sharper's California rape case was set at $1 million, but he was denied bail in the Arizona case.
Sharper hasn't yet entered a plea in Arizona, although one of his attorneys says Sharper will deny the allegations.
He also has pleaded not guilty in the California case.
