LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper returns to court Thursday for a hearing that will determine whether he's released on bail amid new charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted two women last year in Tempe, Ariz.

The athlete has been in a Los Angeles jail since Feb. 27, when he turned himself in on an arrest warrant issued by Louisiana authorities on similar charges. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Renee Korn said last week that she could not hold Sharper indefinitely unless he was charged in New Orleans, which has not yet happened.
