Former New Orleans player Darren Sharper could be on the verge of getting a life sentence after he was indicted on Friday for two counts of aggravated rape, according to reports.
Sharper and his two alleged accomplices all face life in prison for the aggravated rape charges, with the indictment itself the result of an arrest warrant that was issued for an alleged incident last September in New Orleans.
Sharper's bail is set at a huge $2.5 million as a result of the charges, with the former Saints safety also indicted in federal court on drug charges relating to the alleged rapes.
The charges for Sharper stem from accusations dating back to the start of this year. At one point in February, Sharper was accused of 7 rapes and 11 druggings.
