WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Darren Sharper has been removed from the William & Mary Hall of Fame, following the admission by the former Tribe and NFL star that he is a serial rapist.
Athletic director Terry Driscoll says the move was made after Sharper’s recent guilty plea on one of numerous rape charges he faces.
The former safety for the Tribe was enshrined in 2008. He ended a 14-year NFL career in 2011, including being part of the Saints 2009 championship team.
Sharper was working as an NFL network analyst when women began telling police in several cities similar stories of blacking out while drinking with him and waking up groggy to find they had been sexually abused.
Sharper eventually pleaded guilty or no contest to raping or attempting to rape nine women in four states, including cases in New Orleans.
William & Mary says he shared space on a plaque with other members of his hall class.
