The head of security for the Baltimore Ravens was charged for an alleged fourth-degree sex offense.
Darren Sanders, the senior director of security for the Baltimore Ravens, was charged Tuesday with committing a sex offense according to court records and information obtained by the Baltimore Sun. According to the report, Sanders was charged for an alleged fourth-degree sex offense, but details of the case remain unknown.
Sanders played a predominant role in the team’s investigation of the Ray Rice situation during the summer. He reportedly contacted the hotel and Atlantic City police department about the Rice incident. Sanders was reportedly given a description of what occurred on the elevator surveillance video between Rice and his then-fiancee Janay Palmer and relayed that information to Baltimore team executives.
According to the report, Sanders was not arrested, but was charged on Tuesday through a summons and has a Feb. 9 court date. Sanders, a former Baltimore homicide detective, has worked with the Ravens for more than 10 years, according to the Baltimore Sun.
A fourth-degree sex offense charge is a misdemeanor in Maryland and comes with a maximum penalty of a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000, according to Maryland statutes.
