According to the Santa Clara DA, former San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield was charged Monday with raping a developmentally disabled woman at his home and is now facing serious prison time.
The incident happened in April of 2015. Officials say Stubblefield contacted the woman through a babysitting service and asked her to her home for an interview. Instead of an interview he had sex with the woman despite the fact she was “incapable” of giving consent because of a mental disorder and developmental and physical disabilities. Stubblefield apparently called the alleged victim back after she left under the pretext of wanting to pay her for her time.
She went back to the house where Stubblefield picked her up, carried her to a room and raped her, the report says.
He 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.”
Santa Clara County DA Tim McInerny released a statement.
Stubblefield, 45, who stands 6-foot, 3 inches tall and weighs 310 pounds, is charged with five felony counts related to assault and faces a “substantial prison sentence” if convicted, according to prosecutors.
“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” said Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny in a statement. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”
Stubblefield has been charged with rape by force, rape of a victim incapable of giving consent, oral copulation by force, oral copulation with a person incapable of giving consent and false imprisonment.
Officials also want him to submit to an AIDS test.
Bail has been set at $250k.
