The Ravens are back in the news for the wrong reasons.
According to The Sun, senior director of security Darren Sanders has been charged with a fourth-degree sex offense stemming from a complaint filed against him on Dec. 14. Details about the allegations were not immediately known, but the offense carries a maximum one-year prison sentence, a $1,000 fine, or both.
Sanders’ attorney, Andrew Alperstein, told the newspaper that the allegations against his client were “totally fabricated, made up.” Sanders, who has spent more than a decade working for the Ravens organization and is a former Baltimore police homicide detective, has reportedly been assigned a Feb. 9 court date.
The Ravens said in a statement that they were aware of the situation and “have been investigating thoroughly.”
Of course, Sanders was a scrutinized figure in the Ray Rice saga as he claimed to have requested video surveillance of the elevator incident from both Atlantic City police and the Revel Casino but instead heard a description of what happened from a law enforcement official. He also said that Rice told him he had slapped his then-fiancee and denied punching her before video of the incident was released by TMZ months later.
