PHOENIX, Ariz. (WFRV) – Former Green Bay Packers safety Darren Sharper will spend nine years in federal prison for sexual assault.

Sharper was sentenced Monday for sexual assault and attempted sexual assault. He was in Los Angeles and appeared in Phoenix, Ariz. by teleconference.

Sharper is ineligible for early release and will remain on probation for the rest of his life.

The charges stem from a January 2014 incident in Las Vegas that involved two women.

The Packers drafted Sharper in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft and went on to play eight seasons in Green Bay before being released.
