NFL player: Don't open details of sex assault case
Wednesday, June 29, 2011
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.
