Ex-American Football star Dana Stubblefield is sentenced to 15 years to life

Share

FORMER San Francisco 49ers player Dana Stubblefield has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for raping a developmentally disabled woman, whom he lured to his home with the promise of a babysitting position.

 The Santa Clara County (California) District Attorney’s office confirmed the sentencing on Thursday, October 22.

In July, a jury found Stubblefield, 49, guilty of rape by force, oral copulation by force and false imprisonment, and acquitted him of raping a person incapable of giving consent. Jurors also found that Stubblefield used a gun during the assault, prosecutors claim.

The 1997 NFL Defensive Player of the year and 1993 Defensive Rookie of the Year, Stubblefield played defensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and the Oakland Raiders.

A day before the assault, Stubblefield contacted the then 31-year-old woman on a babysitting website and arranged an interview.

According to a report by the Morgan Hill Police Department, the interview lasted about 20 minutes. She later received a text from Stubblefield saying he wanted to pay her for her time that day, and she went back to the house.

After raping her, Stubblefield gave her $80 and let her go, according to the report. The woman immediately went to the police and reported the rape. DNA evidence matched that of Stubblefield, the report said.

Defence attorneys argued that there was no rape and that the woman consented to sex.
