Former New Orleans Saints player Darren Sharper pleaded guilty Monday to rape in Louisiana, completing a series of pleas in four states that will see him serve at least nine years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting women.
Sharper entered his plea — guilty to two counts of forcible rape and one count of simple rape —in a Louisiana state court in New Orleans, a short drive from the federal court where he pleaded guilty last month.
He could serve as much as 20 years under terms of a lengthy memorandum read in court Monday by state District Judge Karen Herman. However, he will probably serve only about another nine years, mostly in federal custody, if he complies with all the terms of that pact.
Those terms include Sharper’s help with investigations of two co-defendants in the Louisiana cases and a long list of requirements he will have to meet after his release, including registering as a sex offender.
Sharper, shackled and dressed in orange coveralls, sat quietly in court, answering, “Yes ma’am” to a series of questions from Herman while consulting with Nandi Campbell, one of his lawyers.
Sharper was first arrested on rape charges in Los Angeles in January of 2014 and has been jailed since February of that year.
Allegations of drug-related rapes in other states followed, resulting eventually in charges being filed in Arizona and Nevada, as well as in state and federal courts in New Orleans.
Attorneys announced a plea deal in March to resolve the charges in all jurisdictions. On March 23, Sharper pleaded guilty to sexual assault in Arizona and no contest in California. He was sentenced to nine years in Arizona and is expected to draw a nine-year sentence when sentenced in California in July.
On March 24, Sharper pleaded guilty in Las Vegas to a reduced felony: attempted sex assault. Sentencing there is pending.
The federal indictment in Louisiana charged Sharper and another man with distributing the drugs alprazolam, diazepam and zolpidem — more commonly known by the brand names Xanax, Valium and Ambien, respectively — with the intent to commit rape.
He was originally charged in Louisiana state court with two counts of aggravated rape, stemming from accusations that he sexually assaulted two drug-impaired women at his apartment in September 2013, and the count of simple rape involving a different woman in August 2013. The aggravated rape counts were reduced to the less serious state charge of forcible rape under the plea agreement.
Sharper is tentatively scheduled for formal sentencing in state court in Louisiana on Aug. 20 and in federal court on Aug. 21, but those dates are expected to change, in part because the Louisiana cases involve two co-defendants.
Brandon Licciardi, a former sheriff’s deputy in Louisiana’s St. Bernard Parish, is charged in state court with aggravated rape of a woman on Feb. 2, 2013. Licciardi also was charged with three counts of human trafficking for the purposes of providing sexual conduct and with one count of battery. He faces federal charges involving alleged distribution of drugs to commit rape and alleged witness tampering.
Erik Nunez, another Sharper acquaintance, was charged with two state counts of aggravated rape for his alleged involvement with the two women at Sharper’s apartment. Nunez also was charged with obstruction of justice. He is not charged in the federal case.
Licciardi and Nunez have pleaded not guilty.
Sharper was selected All-Pro six times and chosen for the Pro Bowl five times during a career that included stints with the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. He played in two Super Bowls, one with the Packers as a rookie and in the Saints’ 2010 victory.
Time Warner Cable sent 153 automated phone calls to a Texas woman’s cell phone, and now must pay her $229,500. The calls were not even meant for her, a fact she made clear to the company. Araceli King sued the company in March 2014, but the cable giant still placed 74 more calls. A judge ruled that the calls were “particularly egregious violations” and fined the company triple the typical $500 fine for calling after a person requests a company not call again.
Many people dislike receiving robo calls. Araceli King disliked receiving 153 of them from a single company.
Time Warner Cable Inc must pay the insurance claims specialist $229,500 for placing 153 automated calls meant for someone else to her cellphone in less than a year, even after she told it to stop, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Tuesday.
King, of Irving, Texas, accused Time Warner Cable of harassing her by leaving messages for Luiz Perez, who once held her cellphone number, even after she made clear who she was in a seven-minute discussion with a company representative.
The calls were made through an “interactive voice response” system meant for customers who were late paying bills.
Time Warner Cable countered that it was not liable to King under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a law meant to curb robocall and telemarketing abuses, because it believed it was calling Perez, who had consented to the calls.
But in awarding triple damages of $1,500 per call for willfully violating that law, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein said “a responsible business” would have tried harder to find Perez and address the problem.
He also said 74 of the calls had been placed after King sued in March 2014, and that it was “incredible” to believe Time Warner Cable when it said it still did not know she objected.
“Defendant harassed plaintiff with robo-calls until she had to resort to a lawsuit to make the calls stop, and even then TWC could not be bothered to update the information in its IVR system,” Hellerstein wrote.
The last 74 calls, he added, were “particularly egregious violations of the TCPA and indicate that TWC simply did not take this lawsuit seriously.”
A trial had been scheduled for July 27. Time Warner Cable spokeswoman Susan Leepson said the New York-based company is reviewing the decision.
“Companies are using computers to dial phone numbers,” King’s lawyer Sergei Lemberg said in a phone interview. “They benefit from efficiency, but there is a cost when they make people’s lives miserable. This was one such case.”
Charter Communications Inc. agreed in May to buy Time Warner Cable for $56 billion. The merger has yet to close.
A Southern California water district filed suit against Tom Selleck and his wife on Monday, claiming the “Magnum P.I.” star used a public hydrant to fill a commercial water truck on 12 different occasions, according to Courthouse News Service. The court documents allege Selleck continued filling his tanker even after cease-and-desist notices were sent to two of his homes in drought ridden California.
Technical difficulties were reported
The New York Stock Exchange temporarily suspended trading Wednesday in all of securities after reports of technical difficulties, the Intercontinental Exchange Inc.’s NYSE Group said. “It’s been a little bit of a bumpy day. We had some technical problems even before the opening,” said Art Cashin, director of floor operations at the NYSE, in an interview with CNBC. Trading stopped around 11:30 a.m. ET.
Trading in all symbols was halted on the New York Stock Exchange floor Wednesday due to an apparent technical issue. The NYSE tweeted that there was no sign of a cyber attack.
The Washington Redskins lost their biggest legal and public relations battle yet in the war over their name after a federal judge in Northern Virginia on Wednesday ordered the cancellation of the NFL team’s federal trademark registrations, which have been opposed for decades by many Native Americans who feel the moniker disparages their race.
The cancellation doesn’t go into effect until the Redskins have exhausted the appeals process in the federal court system. But even if the Redskins ultimately take the case to the Supreme Court and lose, the team can still use “Redskins” and seek trademark protections under state law. The team has argued, however, that a cancellation of its trademarks could taint its brand and remove legal benefits that would protect against copycat entrepreneurs.
U.S. District Judge Gerald Bruce Lee’s decision affirmed an earlier ruling by the federal Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. Last year, the appeal board declared in a 2-to-1 vote that the team’s moniker is offensive to Native Americans and therefore ineligible under the Lanham Act for status in the federal trademark registry. The appeal board had been petitioned by five Native American activists, including Amanda Blackhorse, a Navajo Nation member from Arizona who is well known for leading protests against the team outside stadiums wherever it plays.
A statue of Bill Cosby has been removed from a Disney theme park in the wake of revelations the comedian admitted in court he gave a woman drugs before sex.
The bust had been part of a Hall of Fame exhibit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in Florida.
Documents unsealed this week revealed Cosby testified in 2005 he had obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to sleep with.
Mr. Cosby is facing a series of sexual assault claims dating back decades.
The 77-year-old has denied the accusations and has never been criminally charged.
Calls are mounting for other public tributes to the Cosby Show star to be removed, among them a mural at a Washington DC restaurant he has been known to frequent.
However, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art, also in Washington, issued a statement on Tuesday saying it would continue to display artworks lent to the institution by Cosby and his wife Camille.
The museum said it was aware of the recent revelations about Cosby and that it “in no way condones this behavior”, but said the exhibition was about the artworks and not their owners.
Ben’s Chili Bowl in Washington is facing calls to remove its famous Cosby mural.
Some figures in the entertainment industry have also commented on the revelations in recent days, either to offer tacit support for the comedian or to publicly distance themselves from him.
Speaking on her TV show The View on Tuesday, Whoopi Goldberg reserved judgment by saying “you are still innocent until proven guilty” and that Cosby had “not been proven a rapist”.
In contrast, singer Jill Scott – formerly a staunch Cosby advocate – tweeted on Monday that she was “completely disgusted” and that the comedian’s “own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds.”
Film producer Judd Apatow, one of Cosby’s most vocal and consistent critics, said he did not feel the unsealed files, obtained by the Associated Press news agency, revealed “anything new”.
“It is only new to people who didn’t believe an enormous amount of women who stated clearly that [Cosby] drugged them,” he said in a statement to Esquire magazine.
“We shouldn’t need Bill Cosby to admit it to believe 40 people who were victimized by him,” continued the director and producer of Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and other film comedies.
