Arizona authorities say they won't seek to extradite former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper on rape charges until his sexual assault case in California is resolved.

Sharper remains held in Los Angeles after being denied bail last week on charges that he drugged and raped two women in October at a nightclub.

He also is charged with drugging and raping two women in Tempe, Ariz., in November.

Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery says prosecutors will wait until after the California trial to put him on trial in Arizona.

Montgomery said Wednesday that if Sharper is convicted in California, it could strengthen the Arizona case.

Separate sex assault investigations involving Sharper are ongoing in Florida, Nevada and Louisiana.

He has pleaded not guilty in California, and denies the other allegations.
