Former NFL star Darren Sharper is headed to federal prison. Judge Jane Triche Milazzo sentenced Sharper to 18-years in prison. He had pleaded no contest to charges of drugging and raping women in four states.
Prosecutors had suggested a 9-year prison term for Sharper back in June, but Milazzo rejected that plea deal as too lenient.
Sharper played safety in a 14-year NFL career—with the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints.
