Sharper makes new plea deal with federal prosecutors

Two weeks after a federal judge rejected a plea deal that included a nine-year prison sentence, former NFL star Darren Sharper has made a new plea deal with federal prosecutors in a drug and sexual assault case.

The new deal was acknowledged in a federal court filing Wednesday. The document gave no details.

U.S. District Judge Jane Triche Milazzo on Feb. 18 rejected the nine-year sentence as too light and noted sentencing guidelines calling for a sentence in the range of 15 to 20 years.
