Ex-49er Dana Stubblefield Denies Raping Woman
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The attorney for former San Francisco 49er Dana Stubblefield says his client had consensual sex with the woman who accused him of rape.
Attorney Gary Winuk says the 45-year-old former defensive lineman is being unfairly targeted because of his wealth and celebrity.
Winuk says Stubblefield provided prosecutors with lie-detector results and with evidence that shows the sexual encounter last year was consensual.
He says the woman asked his client for a job and money afterward.
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced it charged the 45-year-old Stubblefield on Monday with sexually assaulting the woman last year at his Morgan Hill home.
