DENVER — Details of sexual assault allegations against Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox will remain secret.

A judge ruled today that a hearing laying out the evidence in the case be conducted in open court. But Cox’s lawyer promptly waived his client’s right to a preliminary hearing on the evidence.

That means the case will proceed directly to a trial. That’s scheduled to begin May 16.

Cox faces two charges of sexual assault on a helpless victim incapable of appraising her condition, and could face between 2 years and life in prison if convicted.

Most of the documents in the case have been sealed, including an affidavit containing details of the allegations that led to Cox’s arrest in December.
