Rape charges filed against former 49ers player

Several sexual assault charges, including rape, were formally pressed against Dana Stubblefield on May 2 in Santa Clara after a woman reported Stubblefield sexually assaulted her in April 2015.

In a statement, District Attorney Tim McInerny said that the woman, described as developmentally disabled, was “unconscionably assaulted” while interviewing for a job as a nanny at Stubblefield’s home. The victim drove to Morgan Hill Police Department immediately after the incident occurred and was physically examined by a Sexual Assault Response Team. The authorities made a thorough investigation of the claims before filing the charges against the former 49ers defensive tackle. Stubblefield, who was held on a $250,000 bail, faces up to 16 years and 8 months in prison if found guilty of the charges.
