SAN JOSE, Calif. — Former San Francisco 49er Dana Stubblefield has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison Thursday for raping a developmentally disabled woman.
The Mercury News reports the sentence was issued by a judge in San Jose after denying a defense motion for a new trial.
Last week, an appeals court denied a related petition filed on behalf of Stubblefield by his attorneys.
A jury in July found the 49-year-old Stubblefield guilty of raping the woman with the threat of a gun. He has been held in the Santa Clara County Main Jail since the verdict.
