LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former NFL safety Darren Sharper has pleaded not guilty plea to charges that he drugged and raped two women he met at a West Hollywood night club.
A judge increased his bail to $1 million Thursday and ordered him to remain in Los Angeles, stay away from nightclubs and not be alone with any woman not known to him since October, when the first alleged incident took place.
The judge said she considers the case very serious and cited reports that there may be more women coming forward. Prosecutors said Sharper is being investigated in three more states and a recent allegation has surfaced in Miami.
Sharper played in the NFL from 1997 to 2010, mostly with the Packers. His attorneys said he will claim that any sexual contact was consensual.
