Former NFL safety Darren Sharper has been put away for a long time. According to the Associated Press, Sharper was sentenced this morning to 18 years in prison for drugging and raping as many as 16 women.

In court he apologized for his actions. According to AP, ‘Sharper’s voice thickened and broke as he said he apologized “a thousand times” to the women he abused and to his family and friends. He said “I lived my life right for 38 years and then I took this path.” Sharper said he’s still trying to figure out why he did.’

Sharper had pleaded guilty or no contests to the charges across four states, but in federal court in New Orleans this morning, Judge Jane Triche Milazzo sentenced him to the lengthy stay.

Prosecutors had asked for a 9-year term as part of a plea deal across the states of Louisiana, California, Nevada and Arizona. But the judge doubled that for the former Packers, Vikings and Saints safety.

Sharper had an outside chance at the Hall of Fame, ending his career with 731 tackles, 63 INT’s (T-8th all-time), and 13 TD’s, but after these horrific incidents he should be locked out forever.
