Former NFL safety Darren Sharper was sentenced to 18 years in prison Thursday after being accused of the drugging and raping of as many as 16 women in Louisiana, California, Arizona and Nevada.
According to the Associated Press, Sharper was sentenced by Judge Jane Triche Milazzo in New Orleans two months after the judge decided to seek a tougher penalty than the nine-year sentence that was initially suggested by prosecutors.
Per Scooby Axson of SI.com, Sharper has been in jail since 2014, and he pleaded guilty or no-contest to multiple rape charges.
The 40-year-old former Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints star previously agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of co-defendants Brandon Licciardi and Erik Nunez in exchange for a more lenient sentence, according to Ken Daley of NOLA.com.
When factoring in time served, Sharper will be eligible for release from prison in 2032 should he serve his entire 18-year term.
