Broncos' Perrish Cox appears in court
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -- A judge has granted Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox more time to review a statement he gave to police investigating sex assault allegations against him.
Cox faces one count of sexual assault against a victim who was physically helpless and one count of sexual assault against a victim who was incapable of determining the nature of the conduct. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on $50,000 bail.
Cox appeared in court Friday, and his attorney told the judge that he had received a copy of a recording of Cox's statement to police just hours before the hearing.
The judge postponed the hearing -- which will consider what evidence to allow at Cox's trial -- until Sept. 16.
