This Denver Sex Crimes blog has spoken before of the sexual assault charges levied against Denver Bronco Cornerback Perrish Cox. He has since been acquitted, or found “not guilty” of sexual assault in Douglas County, Colorado. This crime carried an indeterminate sentence of two years to life in prison in Arapahoe, Adams, and Jefferson County. Incest (CRS 18-6-302), Sexual Assault on a Child (CRS 18-3-405), or Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404) are also sex offenses which use indeterminate sentencing as punishment.
Because of the accusations, Cox had to sit out the 2011/2012 football season while he waited on the results of his court case. Cox, as a rookie, started in nine games for the Broncos during the 2010/2011 season. His promising career was put on hold just as the 2011 season was beginning as he dealt with the sexual assault accusations. The Broncos quickly dismissed him, and even though the reasons they gave pertained to his performance, the chance that Cox might be in prison for a lifetime was probably a factor in their decision.
Cox has recently described the situation as the worst year of his life. Dealing with accusations of Sexual Assault (CRS 18-3-402) in Douglas, Larimer, or Weld County is serious. Cox missed out on valuable playing time with the Denver Broncos. He has since found a new home with the San Francisco 49ers, but is still playing catch up with his teammates. He also carries the stigma of being charged with a sexual assault.
