Former NFL player Dana Stubblefield was sentenced today to 15 years to life in prison for rape.

Stubblefield was found guilty of rape by force and using a firearm in commission of a crime in connection with an incident that took place in his home in April of 2015. The victim in the case was a woman who went to his home to respond to an ad seeking a babysitter for his children.

The 49-year-old Stubblefield was the 49ers’ first-round draft pick in 1993. He was the league’s defensive rookie of the year that season and was named defensive player of the year in 1997.

Stubblefield’s past run-ins with the law include pleading guilty to lying to investigators about his steroid use in 2009, and going to jail for stealing his ex-girlfriend’s mail in 2010.
