Subpoena sheds light on direction of N.O. Sharper investigation

A newly obtained subpoena sheds more light on the Darren Sharper rape investigation in New Orleans. It involves records from a Warehouse District hotel and mentions the former NFL player and one of his associates.

According to court records, the Orleans Parish District Attorney's Office has subpoenaed all guest history for Sharper at the Renaissance Hotel on Tchoupitoulas Street, including any room registration records from August 31, 2013.

The DA's office also asked for key card information and security video that shows Sharper or Brandon Licciardi. As FOX 8 first reported last month, According to a source, Licciardi, a sergeant with the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office, received a search warrant for his DNA.

A source also told FOX 8 that Licciardi introduced Sharper to one of the alleged victims on the night of the incident. Last month, Licciardi was reassigned to desk duty at the sheriff's office, but Sheriff Jimmy Pohlman would not comment further.

Sharper and another man, Erik Nunez, are accused of raping two women at Sharper's apartment, which is across the street from the Renaissance Hotel. But that allegedly happened in late September of 2013, so it's unclear how the Aug. 31 records play into the investigation.

We reached out to Licciardi attorney Pat Fanning for comment, but he hasn't responded. In the past, Fanning has told FOX 8 that Licciardi was only a witness and was fully cooperating in the investigation.

Sharper is under either under indictment or investigation in four states for rape allegations. He has been jailed in Los Angeles since February.
