Former Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox is being charged with two counts of sexual assault for an alleged incident that occurred Labor Day weekend in 2010.
Current Bronco receiver Demaryius Thomas is expected to testify in the case since he was present during the alleged incident, and the victim says that she recalls fooling around with Thomas at Cox’s apartment. Thomas could be called to the stand as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
The victim was impregnated by Cox according to DNA tests and she suspects that she was raped by Thomas after she passed out. Broncos cornerback Cassius Vaughn may be called to testify because although he was not at the apartment during the incident, he was staying there at the time. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard could also be called in since he reportedly dated the victim at one time.
Cox was cut by the Broncos in training camp last year after starting in 9 games his rookie year. Now that Thomas’s name is associated with the case, it will draw a lot more attention.
For all of you Broncos fans who also watch Law & Order, here’s a real life case worth taking note of.
