SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A former San Francisco 49er defensive lineman charged with raping a "developmentally delayed" victim said the encounter was consensual and the woman was mentally competent.

Dana Stubblefield's lawyers said Tuesday that the woman also asked the former football star for money several times after the April 2015 encounter.

The 45-year-old is charged with raping the 31-year-old woman after she traveled to his Morgan Hill, California home about 20 miles south of San Jose to interview for a job babysitting his children. Investigators say she left after 20 minutes, but returned when Stubblefield texted her that he wanted to pay for her time. Prosecutors allege that's when the rape occurred.

Stubblefield's attorneys Tuesday said the woman texted him 22 times after the alleged rape, asking for money 10 times.
