Former New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper has been indicted on serious charges.
The United States District Attorney in New Orleans announced that Sharper and a co-defendant Brandon Licciardi distributed three illegal drugs ”with intent to commit rape.” Sharper has been charged with rape and drug charges.
The former Saints safety is jailed in California on charges that he drugged and raped two women there. He also faces sexual assault charges in Arizona. Similar accusations against Sharper in Las Vegas remain under investigation.
There no scheduled court day for Sharper and Licciardi. More than likely the trial will start late next year.
