Former 49ers defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield was charged Monday with the rape of a disabled woman in Santa Clara County, California, according to multiple reports.

Stubblefied, 45, allegedly sexually assaulted a developmentally disabled woman in April 2015, NBC Bay Area reports. The woman was 31 years old, according to KTVU, San Francisco’s Fox affiliate, and the incident occured at Stubbefield’s home in Morgan Hill, California.

The woman was reportedly at Stubblefield’s home to interview for a babysitting job. Stubblefield had contacted the woman through a babysitter website.

“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” deputy district attorney Tim McInerny said. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”

Stubblefield’s bail has been set at $250,000. Stubblefield is facing five felony counts in connection to the rape, McInerny told NBC.
