In one of the most disturbing stories I’ve ever heard, former 11-year NFL defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield was charged in the rape of a disabled woman.
According to CSN Bay Area, the three-time Pro Bowler assaulted the alleged victim at his home on April 9, 2015 when she came over to interview for a babysitter’s job.
Here’s what Deputy DA Tim McInerny had to say, per CSN Bay Area:
“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” prosecutor Tim McInerny said in a statement. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”
Stubblefield was booked into jail on Monday after an investigation that lasted nearly 13 months. Bail has been set at $250,000. The date of his arraignment at the South County Courthouse in Morgan Hill will be set within 24 hours, according to the DA’s office.
Charged with five felony counts in relation to the incident, Dana Stubblefield would face “substantial prison” time if he’s convicted.
