Darren Sharper

Stays in Jail

But Freedom Clock is Ticking

Darren Sharper will sit in a Los Angeles jail for another week, while the clock ticks as the New Orleans D.A. decides whether to charge the football star with rape.

Sharper appeared in court today ... trying to get out of the slammer he's been sitting in since last week ... when a New Orleans judge issued an arrest warrant in connection with rape allegations by 2 women.

Sharper wanted out of jail today, but the L.A. Superior Court judge concluded she can't let him because the New Orleans D.A. has 10 full business days to decide whether to charge Sharper.  The judge felt she had an obligation to hold him until the 10-day period runs out next Thursday.

So Sharper will sit behind bars and New Orleans has to decide whether to s*** or get off the pot.  If he isn't charged by next Thursday, it appears the judge will release Sharper, who has already posted $1 million bail for rape charges that have been filed against him in L.A. County.

The New Orleans case is curious.  The alleged rapes supposedly occurred back in Sept., but the case went no where ... in part because one of the women insisted nothing happened.  She has recently changed her story, but authorities there didn't seem interested in pursuing anything until all the publicity.

You no tmz! Not saying this guy didn't rape anybody,don't really know,but I do no someone who actually said it's common for some girls to cry rape, especially after they find out a guy is either, rich or famous,to either get some money or fame.As sad as it is it's kinda hard to believe the rape card.

I don't believe any women who cries rape. I have seen mens careers and lives ruined over vengeful women who cry rape to punish them.

If he was currently a valuable member of a professional sports franchise, no legal efforts would be spared in securing his release.

If he settled down with one decent girlfriend and stopped dipping his wick everyplace with everybody, his azz would be home right now.

Changed her mind? Ok. Yeah right. Skank Alert.

Since I actually live in his old town, I think it is really strange his old hometown newspaper is not reporting this story? Not one story about the old hometown football hero.
