Darren Sharper indicted on multiple rape allegations

NEW ORLEANS -- Former Saints safety Darren Sharper and two other men have been indicted on multiple rape allegations in New Orleans.

District attorney's spokesman Christopher Bowman says Sharper was indicted Friday on two counts of aggravated rape stemming from accusations that he sexually assaulted two impaired women in 2013. He also was charged with simple rape of a different woman.

Two of Sharper's friends, Brandon Licciardi and Erik Nunez, also are charged with aggravated rape.

Licciardi also was charged with three counts of human trafficking for the purposes of providing sexual conduct.

Nunez also is charged with obstruction of justice.

Sharper has been jailed in California since Feb. 27, awaiting his next hearing there on charges that he drugged and raped two women in Los Angeles County.

Sharper faces similar allegations in two other states.
