Prosecutors said Wednesday that Arizona will not seek to extradite former standout NFL Defensive Back Darren Sharper from California to face rape and drugging charges involving two women as a similar case against him in Los Angeles proceeds. Sharper, who helped the New Orleans Saints win Super Bowl in 2010, faces California charges of drugging four women and raping two of them and is being held without bail in a Los Angeles jail. Maricopa County Attorney's Office spokesman Jerry Cobb said, "Los Angeles prosecutors are going forward with their case, and when they are done we will pursue our case. They filed their case first and it just makes sense for them to continue to proceed."
