Ex- NFL All-Pro Safety, Darren Sharper, was sentenced to nine years in prison and lifetime probation following his guilty plea for sexually assaulting nine different women in four states.

While it seems like nine years is a little short considering the amount of cases against the standout defensive talent, hearings are still scheduled for next month in Las Vegas and later this week in Louisiana. This initial sentence may just be the beginning.
