A judge in Los Angeles has postponed a hearing on rape charges against former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper to await the results of an upcoming bail hearing in Arizona.

Sharper appeared briefly Tuesday in a Los Angeles courtroom in the case alleging he drugged and raped two women in West Hollywood last year. He has pleaded not guilty and remains in custody without bail.

Superior Court Judge Renee Korn postponed the hearing, noting that Sharper's attorneys have proceedings in Arizona on Wednesday to set bail in a separate case alleging the former player sexually assaulted two women in Tempe.

Sharper is expected to stand trial first in Los Angeles. Another hearing was set in L.A. for Thursday.
