Darren Sharper hearings delayed in Los Angeles and New Orleans | NOLA.com
Hearings in rape cases against former Saints star Darren Sharper have been delayed in both federal court in New Orleans and Los Angeles County criminal court, according to prosecutors in California and federal court records. Sharper's preliminary hearing on rape charges in Los Angeles was moved from Tuesday to March 17, a Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokeswoman said in a statement. Sharper's lawyer in Los Angeles, Blair Berk, declined comment on the change. Court records show federal prosecutors have asked to change a court-ordered deadline for Los Angeles authorities to turn over Sharper to the custody of U.S. Marshals, who will bring him to New Orleans to be arraigned on federal drug distribution charges.
