Darren Sharper

BAIL DENIED IN AZ

Darren Sharper's future just got even bleaker ... because he's been shut down AGAIN on his plea for bail ... which means he will continue to call jail home ... and maybe for a long time.

Sharper's lawyer went to court in Arizona today ... asking the judge to let him out on bail.  He's been locked up in L.A. since February, where he also faces sexual assault charges.  The L.A. judge granted bail, but then ruled the Arizona sexual assault charges required her to keep him locked up.

So Sharpers lawyer made the case in Arizona today, claiming Sharper had a right to bail in the case involving 2 woman who claimed he drugged and raped them last year in a Tempe apartment.

The judge was half convinced, ruling the case involving accuser #1 was not strong enough to deny him bail.  In fact, the judge set bail at a measly $1K.

But ultimately the jail bars didn't swing open, because the judge ruled the case against accuser #2 was strong ... strong enough to deny bail. 

Short story ... Sharper will stay in the pokey, where he'll spend a lot of his time preparing for multiple trials in 5 states. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

Have they given this guy a psych evaluation yet. I just do not get it, he is rich and not a bad looking dude and should have been able to get women with little effort but he allegedly choose to drug them. WTF,

If he did it. Then he deserves the punishment. If he didn't then the accusers deserve jail time

Blacks own the prison population then make excuses for the crimes they commit. It's always the white mans fault.
