Media Trying to Get Access to the Sexual Assault Case of CB Perrish Cox

The Denver Post reports that the media is doing their best to try and get access to the case for CB Perrish Cox.

The arrest affidavit detailing why Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox was charged with sex assault should be unsealed because it will not affect his right to a fair trial, an attorney for several media organizations argued today in court. “It is well past the point for the public to have access to that record,” said attorney Steve Zansberg, who is representing The Denver Post, Associated Press and the New York Times. Douglas County District Court Judge Paul King heard arguments today from all sides and will issue a written ruling on the matter but it’s not clear when the ruling will come. Cox faces two felony charges of sexually assaulting a helpless victim unable to appraise her own condition and if convicted, he faces two years to life in prison. Cox’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, said if the affidavit is released, the media would sensationalize the case and that would interfere with his client receiving a fair and impartial trial.
