The former Green Bay Packer and New Orleans Saint is in a world of trouble after getting charged on two counts of rape on Feb. 14. What’s worse, Darren is reportedly now suspected in five other rapes in four different states.

It was a dark day in the NFL world, as former cornerback Darren Sharper was charged with two counts of rape for allegedly drugging multiple women and raping them in his hotel room, according to TMZ.

Sharper allegedly met the two women at a West Hollywood nightclub on Oct. 30. He then invited the girls to another party, and on the way they stopped at his hotel room, where he allegedly each gave them a shot that was laced with a form of Ambien.

Both women reportedly passed out and hours later one of the women claims she woke up to Sharper sexually assaulting her, TMZ reports. The second women says she woke up and “interrupted his actions.”

Sharper was arrested on Jan. 17. Officials also say he was illegally in possession of morphine. He was released on $200,000 bail. If convicted, Sharper could face more than 30 years in prison.

Darren Sharper Facing Even More Charges?

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end there, and it only gets worse. After being charged in California, Sharper is now being investigated for five additional rapes and nine other druggings in four different states, according to the National Football Post.

The ex-Green Bay Packer and New Orleans Saint is being accused of committing similar crimes — with the same pattern — in New Orleans, Las Vegas, and Tempe, Az. So he may be facing even more charges, and even more jail time.
