Dana Stubblefield Rape and Conviction
Former San Francisco 49ers football player Dana Stubblefield has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for the 2015 rape of an intellectually disabled woman, according to the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office.
Stubblefield was convicted in July following a nine-month trial. A jury found Stubblefield guilty of rape by force, oral copulation by force, and false imprisonment after having lured the woman to his home with the promise of babysitting work. The jury also found that he used a gun in the assault.
“‘No’ meant nothing to this defendant,” said Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny. “Based on his status, I think he was never held accountable for prior criminal behavior. Today, he was properly held accountable.”
Allen Sawyer, Stubblefield’s attorney, disputes the jury’s finding. “We are as adamant as ever that Mr. Stubblefield is innocent,” he told CNN.
