Stubblefield, was charged in Santa Clara County, on Monday, with the rape of a developmentally disabled woman after she went to his home to interview for a babysitting job. Stubblefield had been arrested and charged with rape along with four other felonies back in April of 2015.

Deputy District Attorney said that the woman was looking for a job and she was “unconscionably assaulted.” Prosecutors in the case would not reveal what the nature of the woman’s disability was, but an attorney for Stubblefield describes the encounter as consensual.

The 31-year-old woman maintains that she went to Stubblefield’s home and had a 20-minute interview for the job, then drove home. After arriving home, she had received a text from Stubblefield saying that he wanted to pay her for her time. The woman went back to Stubblefield’s home where he then allegedly raped her and gave her $80.00, afterward. The woman drove directly to the police department and reported the alleged assault and gave the money she received to the police. The DNA recovered from the woman matched that of the alleged attacker, Dana Stubblefield.

Stubblefield’s attorneys maintain that the incident was consensual and cited that the woman asked for money afterward, and continually to sent texts to the ex-defensive tackle asking for a job and for more money. When the former NFL player learned of the allegations he immediately made the text messages available to prosecutors. Stubblefield’s attorney also found information showing that the woman has a lengthy criminal history, but has failed to discover any developmental disability,  therefore calling into to question whether she is truly disabled or not.

Attorneys for Stubblefield are taken aback that charges were actually filed by the state.
