Former NFL star Dana Stubblefield faces five felony counts in the rape of a developmentally disabled woman after interviewing her at his home for a baby-sitting job.

The former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman reportedly texted the woman after her interview, telling her he wanted to pay her for her time, The Associated Press reported. She returned to the Morgan Hill home, where he allegedly raped her and gave her $80.

The 31-year-old woman immediately reported the attack to the Morgan Hill Police Department, and DNA evidence matched that of Stubblefield, the AP reported.

Stubblefield's lawyers called the sex consensual and said the former football star will "present a full, rigorous defense," according to the AP.

"Dana Stubblefield is being unfairly targeted due to his celebrity and wealth by someone with full motivation to lie," Stubblefield's attorney Ken Rosenfeld said.

Charges include rape by force or violence, rape of a person incapable of giving consent, oral copulation by force or violence, oral copulation of a person incapable of giving consent and false imprisonment, The Los Angeles Times reported. Bail was set at $250,000.

“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny said in a statement. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”

McInerny said that the charges were filed a year after the incident occurred because: "It’s a thorough investigation and it’s important for us to get it right," the Times reported.
