CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) – A lawyer for Denver Broncos cornerback
Perrish Cox is again asking a judge not to release a document
detailing allegations of sexual assault against him.
Cox is accused of two counts of sexual assault stemming from a
Sept. 6 incident. A hearing is scheduled Wednesday before a
Colorado judge for his lawyer to argue against releasing an
affidavit that explains why authorities wanted a warrant to arrest
him. Such affidavits are often available to the public, but in
January the judge ordered that it be kept secret, saying it could
expose Cox and the alleged victim to abuse.
The Associated Press and The Denver Post asked the judge to
reconsider and he granted the request last week. He said the
alleged victim’s name and other personal information must be
redacted before it is released.
