Erik Nunez, 26, the other man facing rape charges in the case turned himself into New Orleans police on Friday and was on booked two counts of aggravated rape stemming from alleged assaults last September in New Orleans, police said.

Sharper also is under investigation in sexual assault cases in Florida, Nevada and Arizona and has pleaded not guilty to all rape charges he faces.

In the New Orleans case, Sharper and Nunez face charges in the alleged rape of two women at the same location Sept. 23, police spokeswoman Remi Braden said.

The New Orleans District Attorney obtained the warrants for Sharper and Nunez. Each faces two counts of aggravated rape, Remi Braden, a police department spokeswoman, said in a news release.

If Sharper is convicted in the California case, he could face more than 30 years in state prison. If convicted of aggravated rape in Louisiana, both Sharper and Nunez would face life in prison.
