Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) -- Former San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield has been charged with raping a developmentally disabled woman.

Santa Clara County prosecutors allege that Stubblefield attacked the 31-year-old woman in April 2015 when she showed up to be the family's nanny at his home in Morgan Hill, California.

“This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim,” said Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny according to ABC News affiliate KGO-TV. “She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted.”

According to prosecutors, Stubblefield's DNA was found on the woman when she reported the attack to police.

Stubblefield faces five felony counts and a prison sentence of up to 16 years and eight months. Bail has been set at $250,000.

Mark Thompson/Getty Images(LONDON) -- For the first time ever in their 132-year history, underdogs Leicester City are champions of England.

The football club secured their Premier League title when Tottenham and Chelsea tied 2-2 on Monday. Leicester now has an insurmountable 7-point lead over Tottenham as two games remain.

The Foxes started off the season with a longshot 5,000-to-1 odds of winning the league. The football club joined the Premier League only two years ago for the 2014-2015 season, when it was the first time Leicester had participated in 10 years.

According to ESPN, similar 5,000-to-1 odds include: Elvis is found alive, Kim Kardashian is elected president in 2020, and England's warmest day of the year is Christmas.

Sarah Crabill/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin has been suspended for 80 games after he violated the MLB's performance-enhancing drug policy.

The 28-year-old had already been on the team's 60-day disabled list because he broke his left non-pitching arm in a car accident.

"We are disappointed to hear that Josh has violated Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program," the Dodgers said in a statement. "The Dodgers fully support MLB's policy toward eliminating performance enhancing substances from the sport and, as per the Joint Drug Program, we will have no further comment on this suspension."

In a statement released through the MLB Players Association, Ravin said he was using supplements during spring training to help him recover from illnesses.

"During 2016 spring training, I came down with a severe case of intestinal flu and strep throat. I was put on antibiotics and lost a total of 20 pounds in less than seven days," Ravin said. "To try and speed up my recovery, I took some supplements that I thought would help. Unfortunately, I was not as careful as I should have been and one of the supplements contained a banned substance.

"I later learned that the substance showed up in a regular drug test done of me during 2016 spring training. This has been a very painful lesson for me. I have always tried to avoid doing anything in violation of the system and I take full responsibility for the consequences of my actions and my bad judgment. So, I have decided to accept the suspension and continue my ultimate goal to be able to pitch again in the major leagues."

@justintrudeau/Twitter(TORONTO) -- Justin Trudeau wants to make clear that Canada is more than ready for the Invictus Games.

"Oh, hey," the Canadian prime minister begins in a video he posted to Twitter Monday. "I just thought I’d show our friends in the U.S. and U.K. how Canada brings it."

Trudeau addresses Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry, and President and Michelle Obama before dropping to the floor and joining members of the Canadian Invictus Games team on the floor in synchronized push-ups.

Dear @POTUS, @FLOTUS and @KensingtonRoyal - did someone say "bring it?" Canada's ready for @InvictusOrlando.https://t.co/TxBAMPvTYs

— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) May 2, 2016

Then, with one hand planted firmly planted on the ground, Trudeau says "Boom" and drops a figurative mic as the two former service members next to him drop the actual microphones they’re holding.

Last week, the Obamas engaged in playful yet competitive banter with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Harry, telling the royals in a video to be “careful what you wish for.”

The Windsors had a brilliant response, with a clearly amused queen simply saying, “Oh, really?”

The Invictus Games are an international sporting event founded by Prince Harry for wounded, injured and sick service personnel. This year's Games will be held in Orlando from May 8 to May 12.

ESPN, a sister company of ABC News, will begin its coverage of the Invictus Games May 8 on ESPN2.

Joe Faraoni / ESPN Images(MIAMI) -- Rookie Laremy Tunsil will not start his professional career with the Miami Dolphins in the NFL's substance abuse program, ESPN reports, citing a source.

The source did say, however, that the league will keep a close eye on the offensive lineman and step in if needed.

Tunsil, who played for Ole Miss, was drafted by the Dolphins in the first round but sank down to the No. 13 pick after a video surfaced of the him smoking from a bong. The video was posted to his verified Twitter account.

After Tunsil was selected by Miami, he admitted to taking the video at a press conference last Thursday night, but said somebody hacked his account.

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is known for dominating the NBA, but the basketball star is now revealing his best play is at home, as a dad.

Curry, 28, his wife, Ayesha, 27, and their two daughters, Riley and Ryan, are the cover stars of the June issue of Parents magazine.

Curry and Ayesha met as teenagers in North Carolina and are now juggling superstar fame with raising 3-year-old Riley and 10-month-old Ryan.

“It’s an event to get all four of us out of the house at once,” Ayesha, a chef, told the magazine. “When we get in the car and we’ve brought everything and everybody has socks on, it’s like a dream come true.”

The pair also revealed how they keep their marriage private while being in the limelight. For one, the pair have matching tattoos of two arrows pointing at each other.

“I do like a little sign and I kind of slap my tattoo and she does the same,” Curry said.

Curry revealed that when Riley, 3, sees him in his Golden State uniform, she will refer to him as Steph Curry instead of “Daddy.” It was Riley who gained instant fame when she stole the show at one of her dad’s news conferences during last year’s playoffs.

“People recognize her way faster than they do me or Ayesha,” Curry said. “And if we go somewhere and she’s not with us, that’s the first question they ask, ‘Where is Riley?’”

The June issue of Parents magazine is on newsstands now.

Gregory Shamus/NHLI via Getty Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Will Olli Maatta be out for Game 3?

According to ESPN, it's expected the Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman will be out for at least that game after a Sunday hearing with the NHL's player safety department.

Maata was injured after a strike to the head from Washington Capitals defenseman Brooks Orpik moments after Game 2 of their second round series started Saturday. With assistance from defenseman Trevor Daley and center Nick Bonino, he was able to leave the ice, but did not return to the game.

"I don't have a lot of sense of [Maatta's] availability, but I'm probably not optimistic, though," Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said Sunday according to ESPN.

Orpik, who is a former Penguin, was given a two-minute minor interference penalty for the hit. On Sunday after an NHL suspension hearing, he was suspended for three games.

“There's a little a size difference and I think Maatta was leaning over a little bit,” said Capitals coach Barry Trotz according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We'll let the league handle it. If you know anything about Brooks, he plays hard. He plays clean. He's not a dirty player. The Pittsburgh people know that. He plays the game hard, the right way. Whatever the league decides, we'll just deal with it.”

"I was hoping," Boehringer said. "But you never know what happens on draft day.
