Reports of Special Treatment For Darren Sharper; Access to XBOX & NETFLIX 24 Hours a Day (Video)

Former NFL safety Darren Sharper‘s fall from grace was absolutely staggering when the public found out he was an accused rapist and then convicted rapist. He is expected to spend at least 9 years in prison per his latest plea agreement, the former New Orleans Saints safety has pleaded guilty or no contest to rape charges in four states. 

The New Orleans Advocate were doing a story on another inmate named Josh Hanson, who is serving a seven-year sentence for molestation of a juvenile found out from him that Sharper may be receiving special treatment.

For a time, Hanson was in a tier with former Saints player and sex offender Darren Sharper, where sources familiar with the jail say the two had access to an Xbox gaming system 24 hours a day. Hanson has since been moved into another tier. Though the tier was built to hold 10 prisoners, he is the sole occupant.

Strain has refused to answer questions about whether Hanson or Sharper has received favorable treatment or about specific jail policies. Instead, he issued a statement saying that the jail has been recognized at the state and federal levels for outstanding operations and practices and is a model in the field of corrections.

“Darren Sharper and Joshua Hanson have been incarcerated in accordance with all federal Bureau of Prisons guidelines, Louisiana Department of Corrections guidelines and internal Sheriff’s Office policies,” Strain said.
