Sex Offense Charge for the Man Ravens Tasked with Investigating Ray Rice Incident

Share the News


Darren Sanders, former Baltimore police detective and current head of security for the Ravens, was charged Tuesday with fourth-degree sex offense, according to Justin Fenton at the Baltimore Sun.

If the name is familiar, it may be because Sanders was the person the Ravens tasked with investigating Ray Rice’s punching his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City casino elevator. When the team claimed that somehow no one there had seen surveillance footage of the incident itself, it was Sanders who said he was denied a request to view the tape by the Atlantic City police and that he had instead been given a verbal description of the glitchy, original footage.

According to the Sun, the charge, a misdemeanor, brings a maximum sentence of one year in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

Sanders’s attorney has called the allegations, “totally fabricated, made up.”
