*Former NFL safety Darren Sharper has surrendered to police for the alleged rapes of two women in New Orleans last year.
An acquaintance of Sharper, Erik Nunez, 26, also is facing two charges of aggravated rape in the incident, which police said occurred at an apartment on Sept. 23, 2013.
Earlier this month, Sharper was charged with seven felonies in Los Angeles in which he’s accused of drugging and raping two women he met at nightclubs. He pleaded not guilty to those charges.
Sharper is also under investigation in sexual assault cases in Florida, Nevada and Arizona.
If convicted in the California case, Sharper could face more than 30 years in state prison. If convicted of aggravated rape in Louisiana, both Sharper and Nunez would face life imprisonment.
Sharper was selected All-Pro six times and chosen for the Pro Bowl five times. He played in two Super Bowls, one with the Green Bay Packers as a rookie and a second with the New Orleans Saints.
He retired after the 2010 season, having played 14 years in the NFL. He is an analyst for the NFL Network, which has suspended him indefinitely and without pay.
