A Colorado jury on Friday acquitted former Denver Bronco cornerback Perrish Cox of sexual assault charges. Cox was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his apartment in September 2010 after a night of partying. Cox denied having sex with the woman, who testified that she believed she was drugged because she remembers little about what happened. Prosecutors never explained whether they determined if the woman had been drugged, saying that wasn’t necessary to proving the case.
Cox hugged his attorney after the verdict was read. Cox expressed appreciation for his attorney, Harvey Steinberg, and others who supported him during the trial. “I love my lawyer and everybody else who’s been,” with me, said Cox.
Cox, 25, was a rookie out of Oklahoma State who had played eight games for the Broncos when he was arrested. Cox’s agent, Jordan Woy, said he has spoken to several interested NFL teams. “We expect for him to move forward in his NFL career,” Woy told The Associated Press in an email. “Perrish is looking forward to focusing on his life both personally and professionally.” The Broncos said they had no comment on the verdict since Cox no longer is with the organization.
