NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The man accused of raping two women, along with former Saints player Darren Sharper, went to criminal court this afternoon. 

But Erik Nunez did not go in. His attorney did though, and attended a progress hearing in magistrate court. Afterward, the magistrate announced that there has been no disposition in the case, and Nunez would not be required to make a fourth appearance.

However, a spokesman for the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office said Nunez's problems are not over yet. Chris Bowman said the DA's office has until June 28 to formally charge Nunez, who remains free on a $400,000 bond.

Nunez surrendered to police on Feb. 28. He was in jail for 11 days.

Sharper remains locked up in a Los Angeles jail, awaiting his next court appearance next month. He has been investigated for similar crimes in New Orleans, Florida, Nevada and Arizona.
