PHOENIX (AP) - Former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper has lost his bid to be released on bail in a sexual assault case after an Arizona judge decided there's enough evidence to move forward with charges against him.
Sharper's lawyers had questioned the evidence authorities are using to justify keeping him in jail in California, where he faces separate charges that he drugged and raped two women there in October.
His lawyers had hoped to win a favorable ruling in Arizona, where he also faces sex assault charges, to persuade the California judge to set him free on bail.
But on Thursday, a Maricopa County judge found there's sufficient evidence to pursue the case in Arizona. Sharper has not yet entered a plea in the case. He has pleaded not guilty in the California case.
