Former San Francisco 49er and Washington Football Team star defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for his conviction on raping a mentally disabled woman in a 2015 incident.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office confirmed Stubblefield’s sentence. The original report came from TMZ Sports.

On July 27 a jury found Stubblefield guilty of an assault that happened in 2015 at his home in Morgan Hill, California.

According to court documents, the developmentally disabled victim was interviewing for a babysitting job on April 9, 2015, when the incident occurred.

The case was tied up for years in legal arguments centering on Jane Doe’s mental capacity.

The verdict declared Stubblefield was guilty of rape by force, menace or fear, and guilty of using a firearm in the commission of the crime.
