Former New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper has been accused of being a serial rapist.
Sharper is suspect of seven rapes and drugging 11 people in four different states, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
Sharper has been charged with two rapes involving drugs in Los Angeles.
Law enforcement officials have asked a Los Angeles judge to raise Sharper's bond from $200,000 to $10 million. A ruling has been postponed.
Sharper is suspended without pay from his NFL Network analyst job.
"We look forward to the true facts being revealed in this case and we are hopeful that Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated before this case is concluded," Sharper's lawyer, Blair Berk, told The Los Angeles Times.
Sharper has been accused of similar crimes in New Orleans, Las Vegas, Tempe, Ariz., and New Orleans.
He hasn't been charged in New Orleans.
Sharper is facing up to 30 years in prison if convicted of the rape chargers in California.
