Stubblefield Found Guilty of Rape

Recommended Posts

This is the kind of story you need to shower after reading.  WTH is wrong with people...

Ex-49er Dana Stubblefield found guilty of rape, faces prison sentence

Former 49ers defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield faces 15 years to life in prison after being convicted of rape on Monday after a nine-month jury trial.

A jury found Stubblefield lured a developmentally disabled woman to his Morgan Hill home to interview to be a babysitter in April 2015.

Stubblefield was found guilty of rape by force, oral copulation by force and false imprisonment. The jury also found that he used a gun in the assault.

“This was a triumph of resilience,” Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen said in a statement. “The victim has struggled her whole life with learning disabilities and challenges to be self-sufficient. If we are not fighting for her, then who are we fighting for?

“It has been a long road for this remarkable woman and we are thankful to the jury for providing her some closure and, for our community, justice after an unconscionable and violent crime.”

Stubblefield was found not guilty of the rape of a person incapable of giving consent, and oral copulation of a person incapable of giving consent.

The DA presented evidence that on April 9, 2015, the 31-year-old woman visited Stubblefield’s home after he contacted her through a babysitter website. The victim immediately went to the Morgan Hill Police Department to report the crime, the DA’s office said.

Stubblefield, 49, was a first-round draft pick of the 49ers in 1993 from the University of Kansas. He played 11 NFL seasons, made the Pro Bowl three times and was the 1997 NFL Defensive Player of the Year after registering a career-high 15 sacks.

Stubblefield played his first five seasons with the 49ers before signing a lucrative contract with Washington. After three seasons with Washington Stubblefield returned to the 49ers for two years before finishing his career in 2003 with the Oakland Raiders. In 2013 and 2014, Stubblefield served as a 49ers analyst for NBC Sports Bay Area.

Wow, you think that’s an excuse for this? I don’t recall every other football player raping mentally handicapped people...

Because people are all built differently. Some guys are forced to retire in their 20s. Some guys are Junior Seau. Some guys don't show major signs.

So how does that explain the rest of similarly terrible humans? CTE is a real issue, but it’s also a scape goat for other mental health or personality disorders. It’s likely though that it worsens issues that are already underlying.

It would be interesting to review as a study the current and ex players with psychological and personality disorders in the NFL amongst positions: ie do certain positions on the field and does length of time in the position lead to higher prevalence of disease?

like comparing kickers to linebackers, etc

I'm not saying people can't just take a left turn, but these factors can't be discounted. But when someone goes off the rails in their 40s or 50s instead of at a younger age, I'd say it has to be in the discussion.
