Ex-Kansas player Stubblefield charged in felony rape case

Monday, May 2, 2016

San Jose, Calif. — Prosecutors say they have charged former San Francisco 49er and Kansas University player Dana Stubblefield with the rape of a “developmentally delayed” woman.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office says the 45-year-old Stubblefield was charged Monday with sexually assaulting the woman last year at his Morgan Hill home.

Prosecutors say Stubblefield, who starred at Kansas under coach Glen Mason and was the MVP of the 1992 Aloha Bowl, contacted the then-31-year-old woman on a baby sitting website and arranged an interview for April 9, 2015, when he assaulted her.

They say that after the assault the woman immediately went to the Morgan Hill Police Department and reported the rape.

Prosecutors say Stubblefield faces five felony counts and a “substantial prison sentence.”

Bail for Stubblefield is set at $250,000. His arraignment is scheduled to take place within 24 hours.
