Former NFL Pro Bowler Dana Stubblefield Charged With Rape Of Disabled Woman
On Monday, former NFL defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield was charged with the rape of a “developmentally delayed” disabled woman.
“Stubblefield, 45, sexually assaulted the developmentally disabled victim in April of last year. She was assaulted at the defendant’s home in Morgan Hill, where she had been asked to come to interview for a babysitter job.
Stubblefield faces five felony counts related to the assault. If convicted, he faces a substantial prison sentence. Bail has been set at $250,000. The date of his arraignment at the South County Courthouse in Morgan Hill will be set within 24 hours.
“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” prosecutor Tim McInerny said. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”
On the afternoon of April 9, the victim, 31 at the time, traveled to Stubblefield’s home after he contacted her through a babysitter website.
After the assault, the victim immediately went to the Morgan Hill Police Department to report the crime.”
The interview lasted about 20 minutes. The woman left. Minutes later she received a text message from Stubblefield saying he wanted to pay her for her time that day. She went back to the house where Stubblefield picked her up, carried her to a room and raped her, and forced her to “orally copulate him,” the report says.
Stubblefield gave her $80 and let her go. The woman drove straight to the Morgan Hill Police Department, where she reported being assaulted by a man named “Dana.”
