Former NFL Baller Dana Stubblefield Charged With Rape
An ex-baller has been arrested and charged with rape after allegedly assaulting a disabled woman who came to his home seeking employment. Former 49ers and Washington Football Team player Dana Stubblefield is accused or raping a potential babysitter just moments after conducting her interview…
Former NFL defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield has been charged with raping a developmentally disabled woman in his home, the Santa Clara Deputy District Attorney said.
The alleged attack happened in April of 2014, according to prosecutor Tim McInerny.
Authorities say Stubblefield, 45, used the caretaker placement service sittercity.com to arrange an interview for a babysitter. Before the interview, Stubblefield told the alleged victim that he would pay her for the gas, mileage and time it took her to come to the interview.
But officials said that when the 31-year old woman forgot to get the $80 he promised, Stubblefield texted her to return to his home to collect the money. According to McInerny, the sexual assault occurred when the woman went back to Stubblefield’s house.
The victim left Stubblefield’s house and went directly to Morgan Hill Police to report the alleged assault.
She underwent a SART exam — sexual assault response team exam, which is an evidentiary medical exam conducted in sexual assault cases. A crime lab confirmed DNA obtained from the victim matched that of Stubblefield.
An attorney for Stubblefield said the allegations being made against his client are false and fraudulent.
“Stubblefield is being unfairly targeted due to his celebrity and wealth by someone with full motivation to lie,” attorney Ken Rosenfeld said in a statement. Rosenfeld said a sexual encounter did occur between Stubblefield and the woman, but it was consensual.
Seems like an odd defense…this random, developmentally challenged woman decided to instantly have sex with a potential employer, and immediately afterward go get a rape kit done and file a police report — all in the hopes that it would lead to some kind of big payday years down the road?
