NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Erik Nunez, one of two men accused of conspiring to drug and rape women with former New Orleans Saints player Darren Sharper, entered a plea deal to drug distribution in federal court Monday morning.
Jury selection for Licciardi started shortly after 9 a.m Monday.
Licciardi was charged with witness tampering, obstructing a federal grand jury, and conspiring to distribute illegal and prescription drugs with the intent to commit rape.
Under the deal, which could be rejected by the judge, Nunez would receive 10 years in prison, and prosecutors would drop the other charges.
Both Nunez and Licciardi had pleaded not guilty, but Nunez's plea changed.
Sharper took a plea deal on charges he drugged and raped at least nine women in Louisiana, California, Arizona, and Nevada.
Licciardi's trial is expected to take two weeks.
