Could Darren Sharper RAT on other NFL players to help his case?

sharperToday in court, Darren Sharper the former New Orleans Saints safety was put on blast when FBI agents began talking about the events leading up to Sharper’s arrest. According to the Times Picayune in New Orleans, this case could get way worse.

The criminal charges against former St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s deputy Brandon Licciardi are bad enough: in state court, he faces counts of battery with a dangerous weapon, aggravated rape and human trafficking; in federal court, he faces counts of distributing drugs used in rapes and witness tampering.

But testimony Thursday (Dec. 18) by federal investigators and pre-trial services staff at a hearing in Licciardi’s case fleshed out details from the long-running investigation into rapes Licciardi, former Saints player Darren Sharper and New Orleans waiter Erik Nunez are accused of.

Licciardi told investigators he went to a convention in Las Vegas attended by NFL players, and a player warned Licciardi that drinks had been spiked with drugs, FBI Special Agent Robert Blythe testified. Questioned by Licciardi’s lawyer, Ralph Capitelli, Blythe declined to name the player Licciardi mentioned, or other NFL players at the convention.

Blythe said he might not recall the name correctly. “It’s possible I could mess it up. There are a couple (names),” Blythe said.

Licciardi said he didn’t warn police in Las Vegas, and his lawyer asked Blythe if the FBI had alerted authorities in Nevada or if the other players were under investigation. Blythe said no.

“There could be investigations going forward. There’s not currently,” Bythe said. “If given time, I intend to look into those allegations.”

And what did those other NFL players call the drinks mixed with a “substance,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Miller asked Blythe.

“I believe Mr. Licciardi called it ‘horny juice,'” Blythe replied.

If Sharper was involved with other players on this rape idea, he might be forced to RAT or Snitch on the other players to save himself.  I do not know what type of person Sharper is, but this could get ugly. It sounds like the former policeman is already willing to tell, will Sharper join him?
