“We look forward to the true facts being revealed in this case,” Berk said after the brief court appearance. “And we are hopeful Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated before this case is concluded.”

Sharper, 38, played in the NFL from 1997 to 2010, mostly with the Packers.

Sharper was arrested on Jan. 17. He was allowed to remain free on $200,000 bail and ordered to surrender his passport. He has not entered a plea.

Superior Court Judge Roberto Longoria did not immediately take up the bail motion.

Sharper’s lawyers refused to comment on the other investigations.

If convicted in the California case, Sharper could face more than 30 years in state prison.

Sharper was selected All-Pro six times and chosen for the Pro Bowl five times. He played in two Super Bowls, one with the Packers as a rookie and a second with the Saints.
