The football season ends and real life kicks back in.
No one is more aware of that today than Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox. Cox was arressted on December 9, 2010 because of sexual assault charges that were filed on October 28, 2010. The charges against Cox are Class 3 and Class 4 felonies. If convicted, Cox could face two year to life in prison.
Cox was required to go to court this morning to proceed with the case. The judge didn’t release any court documents detailing the case because the investigation is still going on. Cox is required to return to court on March 10 to determine if there is enough evidence for a trial.
Cox’s arrest was the last of many off of the field issues for the Broncos this season. First Kenny McKinley was found dead in his home after an apparent suicide. Then, D.J. Williams was arrested in Denver just days before a game for driving under the influence. Cox’s incident was number three for the Broncos as they pushed through a 4-12 season.
The rookie cornerback was allowed to finish the season, but he was fined by the Broncos for missing team practices and meetings the week of his arrest.
Cox finished the year with 59 tackles, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles, and 14 pass deflections in 15 games.
