Former Raiders defensive tackle and San Francisco 49ers Dana Stubblefield has been charged with raping a disabled woman says Santa Clara Deputy District Attorney’s office.
A press release issued on Monday says Stubblefield, 45, allegedly attacked the 31-year-old victim, who is developmentally disabled, when she had visited his home in Morgan Hill for an interview as a babysitter on April 9, 2015.
“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” prosecutor Tim McInerny said in the release. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”
According to CNN, Stubblefield used sittercity.com to arrange a interview with the victim and told her that he would pay for her travel expenses. The sexual assault allegedly took place when the woman returned to his house after forgetting to get the $80 he promised.
The former professional football player faces five felony counts related to assault and a substantial prison sentence if convicted.
