    Default Darren Sharper Judge Rejects Plea Agreement - Wants More Jail Time

    Judge rejects plea deal in drug, rape case against Darren Sharper

    Posted: Feb 18, 2016 2:30 PM MST

    After Darren Sharper pleaded guilty in four states to drugging and raping multiple women, New Orleans federal Judge Jane Triche Millazo rejected the plea deal.

    Right now, it looks like this whole thing has blown up, and whatever deals he thought he had, he doesn’t have anymore,” FOX 8 legal analyst Joe Raspanti said. “It doesn’t surprise me that the Judge said, 'I don’t want to do this.'”

    The global deal included three counts of conspiracy to distribute narcotics with the intent to commit rape in New Orleans, and federal prosecutors agreed on a 10-year sentence.

    The judge referenced a pre-sentence report that alleges there may have been as many as 16 victims.

    “The 16 victims that the judge could be considering alluded to victims that he may not be charged with, or may never be charged with, but the judge can still consider it,” Raspanti said.

    The judge said she did not believe the current plea deal provided just punishment.

    “Obviously, based upon what she’s heard, the 10-year number wasn’t good enough for her. That’s why she kicked it back and said no,” Raspanti said.

    The sentencing guidelines call for 188 to 235 months. That’s between 15 to 20 years.

    “Federal sentencing guidelines are advisory, which means they are just what the commission says you should consider sentencing him. But she can go above or below it because she’s a federal judge and she can do whatever she wants,” Raspanti said.

    Raspanti said Sharper now has a big decision to make, whether he’ll change his plea and go ahead with a trial or continue on with a guilty plea and accept whatever sentence the judge gives him.

    Meanwhile, Sharper has already pleaded guilty in California, Arizona and Nevada.

    “Any sentence you get for any crime in any other jurisdiction stands alone. That judge sentences you for that crime in that jurisdiction,” Raspanti said.

    Raspanti said the final judge to sentence Sharper will decide whether he’ll serve his time currently or consecutively

    Good. I hope the motherfucker never sees daylight again.

    Disturbing details in Darren Sharper rape case come out during hearing

    The criminal charges against former St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's deputy Brandon Licciardi are bad enough: in state court, he faces counts of battery with a dangerous weapon, aggravated rape and human trafficking; in federal court, he faces counts of distributing drugs used in rapes and witness tampering.

    But testimony Thursday (Dec. 18) by federal investigators and pre-trial services staff at a hearing in Licciardi's case fleshed out details from the long-running investigation into rapes Licciardi, former Saints player Darren Sharper and New Orleans waiter Erik Nunez are accused of.

    Spiked drinks at convention attended by NFL players
    Licciardi told investigators he went to a convention in Las Vegas attended by NFL players, and a player warned Licciardi that drinks had been spiked with drugs, FBI Special Agent Robert Blythe testified. Questioned by Licciardi's lawyer, Ralph Capitelli, Blythe declined to name the player Licciardi mentioned, or other NFL players at the convention.

    Blythe said he might not recall the name correctly. "It's possible I could mess it up. There are a couple (names)," Blythe said.

    Licciardi said he didn't warn police in Las Vegas, and his lawyer asked Blythe if the FBI had alerted authorities in Nevada or if the other players were under investigation. Blythe said no.

    "There could be investigations going forward. There's not currently," Bythe said. "If given time, I intend to look into those allegations."

    Drugged cocktails called "the potion" and "horny juice"
    And what did those other NFL players call the drinks mixed with a "substance," Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Miller asked Blythe.

    "I believe Mr. Licciardi called it 'horny juice,'" Blythe replied.

    Licciardi was concerned that investigators might find incriminating text messages on his phone, Blythe testified, including a message in which Sharper allegedly referred to drugging a victim.

    "She's on the potion. She's ready," Sharper wrote in a text, Blythe said.

    Battery charge was an attempted drugging
    Pre-trial services officer James Laney described a report from the Orleans Parish District Attorney's investigation that led to charges against Licciardi, one of which was for battery with a dangerous weapon in November 2013.

    Licciardi gave a woman at a New Orleans Bar a cocktail that allegedly contained drugs, and which apparently immediately made the woman sick to her stomach, Laney said. The woman went to a bathroom to vomit, and passed out. When she woke up, the bar was empty and she was locked inside, Laney said.

    Sharper bet on sports, including football
    FBI Special Agent DeWayne Horner also testified about investigators' interviews with a St. Bernard businessowner who ran a bookmaking operation, and hired Licciardi to recruit bettors, as well as pick up and drop off winnings. One of Licciardi's recruits was Sharper, who bet on baseball and football, Horner said.

    Sharper apparently bet big, and on one occasion, won so much that the bookie decided to pass him on to "Russians" based in California who could handle larger wagers.
    Sharper lost $25,000 on a bet with the Russians, but Sharper didn't pay. The bookie warned Licciardi that Russians could easily track down Sharper's computer and find his home address.

    "They'll get your address and they will come kill you," the bookie said he warned Licciardi. Licciardi, the bookie said, didn't seem concerned.

    Licciardi was accompanied to FBI headquarters by a surveillance plane
    When Licciardi surrendered to the U.S. Marshals after he was indicted in federal court last week, his father, veteran St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's officer Joe Licciardi drove him to FBI headquarters -- with FBI vehicles driving in front and in back of them, and an airplane flying above them, Horner said.

    News of the charges against Brandon Licciardi had already broken on WWL-TV, Horner said, and agents headed to his house.

    On the way, they received calls from the Sheriff's office, warning them that Joe Licciardi was with his son, and warning agents to be "very careful with Mr. Licciardi, that (they) didn't know how his father would react to his son being indicted."

    The agents let Joe Licciardi drive his son to the FBI headquarters, but made sure he was bracketed by their cars.

    "We had him in a convoy," Horner said. "We had other assets available" if he tried to make a break.

    Two women told Los Angeles police detectives that Ex-NFLstar Darren Sharper insisted they take drinks he made before they blacked out and were sexually assaulted, according to LAPD documents. Three LAPD reports obtained by The Times provide new details about the statements women gave to police that resulted in criminal charges against Sharper. The Super Bowl-winning safety has been jailed for more than a year amid ongoing investigations into allegations that he attacked women in L.A., Las Vegas, New Orleans and Tempe, Ariz.

    The LAPD reports were obtained under a public records request filed with the Tempe Police Department. The names of the women were redacted.

    Leonard Levine, one of Sharper's attorneys in Los Angeles, said Thursday evening that "much of the information in those reports will be contradicted by other evidence and the truth of the statements has yet to be tested in court."

    The first report describes an Oct. 30, 2013, incident at a Century City hotel. A woman told LAPD detectives she was introduced to Sharper earlier in the night through a mutual friend.
    About 2 a.m., the woman told detectives that, Sharper asked if she would go with him to her Century City hotel "so he could get something." The woman said she went with Sharper to the hotel in anUber car.

    When they arrived at Sharper's hotel room, the woman told police that he poured her a drink that she did not want. Sharper was "insistent that she drink it," according to the report.
    "The [victim] was under the impression that they were going to be going to an after-party," according to the report. "So, the [victim] went to use the restroom and does not recall anything after that."
    The next morning, the woman told police, she woke up naked, with Sharper on top of her having sex. The woman said she felt groggy and told Sharper that she had to leave, but told police that he "continued having sex with her," the report said.

    The woman later told police that a friend was at the hotel at the time. The friend also took a drink from Sharper and blacked out, waking up in the hotel room’s living room, according to the police report.

    According to the report, the friend knocked on Sharper's bedroom door, prompting him to call out "Hold on!" The woman who was in the bedroom told police he got off her, which is when she was able to get dressed and leave. She told police that she and her friend hailed a cab outside the hotel.

    "Later, the [suspect] texted the [victim] to see if she got home safely," the report said.

    The two other reports detail an alleged incident that occurred on Jan. 15, 2014, when two women told police they met Sharper at a nightclub.

    The women told detectives that Sharper gave them a ride to an after-party at a Hollywood Hills home, after which he invited them to another party. But first, he told them, he "had to go to his hotel room and pick something up," according to the report.

    When the three arrived at Sharper's hotel room, the women told police that Sharper made them vodka and cranberry shots, which he had mixed while they were in the bathroom. The women told police they initially declined, "but Sharper kept asking them to take the shots."

    "The shots didn't taste like normal vodka shots," the women told police.

    The women told detectives they blacked out within 10 minutes of drinking and woke up the next morning on a pull-out bed in the living room. One of the women said she felt pain in her vagina; the other "couldn't remember anything."

    The women took a taxi and left the hotel without seeing Sharper, according to the report.

    Later that day, the women "decided to get tested because they believe they had been sexually assaulted." Detectives met them at the Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center. The report does not detail the outcome of the tests.

    Less than a month later, Los Angeles County prosecutors filed rape and drug charges against Sharper. The 39-year-old initially posted bail and was released, but was taken into custody again the following month after New Orleans police issued a warrant for his arrest in connection with their investigation. An L.A. judge later ordered that he be held without bail.

    While behind bars, Sharper was indicted by grand juries in Arizona and Louisiana on various sexual assault and drug charges. The Louisiana charges included aggravated rape, which carries a potential life prison sentence. He also faces federal drug charges in Louisiana.

    Sharper’s preliminary hearing on the Los Angeles charges is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

    Sharper, a five-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl winner with the New Orleans Saints who retired in 2011, went on to work as an analyst for the NFL Network until his arrest in Los Angeles.
