    It's been out there plenty, hasn't been talked about in a while but this was definitely a story when it happened.

    Maybe it's just been all the stories as of late and his got lost in the fray on me, either way very disappointing. It will never make sense to me how you can be a physically gifted man with a lot of money and success and appear to have class, and somehow feel the need to assault someone in any manner.

    So , with premeditation, you drug and rape how many women in how many states- that we know of- and get a max of 9 years with the possibility of parole in 3 years?
    Un-effin-believable.

    Crazy. The women in these cases must not have good evidence for the prosecution to allow this soft of a plea for something so awful and so repetitive.

    That's what money buys in this country. He changed his plea, which tells me the prosecution worked out a deal. Darren likely knew if he maintained his "innocence" he would get the max sentence and not see daylight again for a long time.

    He is a piece of crap and needs to rot in a cell the rest of his pitiful existence. If he were a regular joe making 40K/year he would be preparing to go away for a long, long time but this is America and money talks so social pariahs walk. This guy has turned drug and rape into an art form. Pure scum.

    No, it's 50% of a 20 year sentence, with less time served with good behavior, and if concurrent with his proceedings it will be no more than 9 years, maybe even less when all is said and done.

    I never understood how concurrent sentences are even allowed. It's basically allowing you to do something that you cannot physically do, which is be in many places at once.

    Say Guy A rapes 10 women, and Guy B rapes 1 women. Now, both are scumbags, but Guy A caused damage to 10 times as many women. If both are sentenced to 10 years for every rape, common sense tells me that Guy A serves 100 years, 10 years for every rape. Yet they end up both doing the same amount of time.

    To me, it's still kind of misleading to say 20 years when he's only expected to serve 9. Guess it just depends on how you want to interpret it.

    As we always say when talking about contracts, it's all in the details.

    I would assume he would be extradited and prosecuted in each state he gets charged in...

    He was sentenced to 20, who knows how long he will serve.

    The states worked together and came to agreement (judges still need to sign off), so I doubt he will be moving around state to state. Sentences are concurrent

    I bet if I did what he did the sentences wouldn't be concurrent.

    At the time the thread was created, the information was correct.

    Two things.

    It's sort of irritating that news of Sharper's conviction and sentencing are attached to Packers news on sites like ESPN. It's not like the Packers are responsible for his behaviours for eternity. Thank god he isn't contaminating the Packers Hall of Fame.

    Second, you know most of us can get laid at least ocassionally without resorting to "drugging and raping women". One wonders where the train went off the tracks for Sharper, assuming that any of us actually care.

    What a louse!!!

    I'm just glad he didn't try and use some defense that he took too many shots to the head during his career and didn't know what he was doing, was insane etc because of the NFL.

    I truly hope that he isn't drugged, and therefore conscious, in prison when Rocco and Bubba make him understand the pain that rape causes.
