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 stemming from allegations that he forced sex on two women in January 2014 while they were incapable of resisting. Details of the Las Vegas allegations weren't immediately available.
Chesnoff declined to comment on the charges but said Justice of the Peace Janiece Marshall set another court hearing for April 3. Each count carries a possible sentence of 10 years to life in Nevada state prison.
