PHOENIX (AP) — A judge in Phoenix will hold a hearing Wednesday in which lawyers for former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper will challenge the evidence used to keep him in jail without bail on sexual-assault charges in Arizona.

Sharper is charged with drugging and sexually assaulting two women in November in Tempe.

The hearing marks the latest development in several ongoing sexual-assault investigations involving the 38-year-old Sharper in Louisiana, California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada.

He was previously released from jail in a rape case in California on $1 million bail, but he was denied bond in Arizona.

Sharper will not attend Wednesday’s hearing.

He hasn’t yet entered a plea in Arizona, though one of his attorneys says Sharper will deny those allegations.
