Darren Sharper Rape Case

New Orleans Prosecutors

Gunning for Public Shaming

3/1/2014 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0227-darren-sharper-02Officials in New Orleans don't just want Darren Sharper's head ... it seems they want to HUMILIATE the guy in public by parading him in cuffs though the streets of the Big Easy.

Sharper is currently jailed in downtown L.A. after New Orleans cops got a warrant for his arrest in connected with 2 alleged rapes. 

We're told Sharper's lawyers tried to get him out Friday but New Orleans prosecutors objected.  We're told they do NOT want the judge to let Sharper out on bail.  They want marshals to come to L.A. ... shackle him and haul him back as a prisoner.

Now here's what's funky.  Sources tell us Sharper has agreed to fly back to New Orleans and face the charges.  It makes sense, because he's already on $1 million bail in L.A. for 2 unrelated rape charges.  The judge could easily add a condition to his bail that he fly to New Orleans and return.

So why is New Orleans so crazed about making Sharper a spectacle?  We're told all 5 of the jurisdictions which are investigating Sharper are all jockeying for first position.  They all want to be the first to prosecute him, and there's already infighting between the agencies.

Darren Sharper ... he's not just a suspect -- he's a prize.

When facing Life Without Parole, defendants are not offered the "honor policy" to take a flight across the country & hopefully check-in to prison.

It was not that long ago that Louisiana had the death penalty for aggravated rape. It sure would cause one heck of a stink if they were to wire this guy up and flipped the switch...

So the dude is currently facing FOUR rape charges in different parts of the country? This isn't a case of gold diggers, this is a case of a serial rapist.

"Darren Sharper ... he's not just a suspect -- he's a prize."
TMZ, this "story" shows how badly this web site has lost it's moral compass. This man is accused of raping multiple women in multiple states and you hardly mention that part, the most significant part of the story. Nothing about the victims humiliation, just some crap about this "poor football player" who likes to force himself upon women.

Just goes to show you prosecutors have as much conscience as the raper himself. All about getting their 15 minutes on TV and likely to use that to jumpstart a political career. GUARANTEED these fools will be pushing each other out of the way to be the spokesman for this whole ugly saga.
