Former NFL star Darren Sharper’s next appearance on drug and sexual-assault charges is scheduled for a state court in New Orleans.

Sharper will appear Tuesday to answer to aggravated-rape and other state charges.

He returned to the city where he once was a football hero on Monday to answer to federal charges that he drugged women with the intent to rape them. He entered a formal not-guilty plea but is expected to change that under a multijurisdictional plea agreement announced last month.

He has pleaded guilty or no-contest to related charges in three other states and is expected to spend at least nine more years behind bars as the result of the multijurisdictional plea agreement.
