Broncos’ Cox sex charges carry life sentence

ENGLEWOOD — Denver Broncos rookie cornerback Perrish Cox could face up to life in prison if convicted of sexual assault charges filed by prosecutors last week.

A portion of the case unsealed by a Douglas County judge today shows the sexual assault charges are Class 3 and Class 4 felonies, which carry a sentence of between two years to life in prison. They involve a helpless victim.

Other details of the case remain sealed.

Cox, who played in the Broncos’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday, is free on $50,000 bail.

Cox could face a four-game suspension from the NFL next season for violating the league’s personal conduct code. Commissioner Roger Goodell doesn’t need a player’s conviction to punish him.
