Despite motions filed by multiple media outlets, Judge Susanna Meissner-Cutler refused to make sealed documents public in the sexual assault hearing of Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox. Meissner-Cutler set a preliminary hearing in the case for March 10.

Cox, 23, was on hand for today’s events. He was arrested December 14 after Lone Tree police received a sexual assault complaint October 28. If convicted, Cox could face life in prison.

Carlos Illescas of the Denver Post explains all the details:

Cox, whose alias in court documents is listed as "Peacock," faces two felony charges that accuse him of sexually assaulting a helpless victim incapable of appraising her own condition.

The sex assault-victim helpless charge is a class 3 felony. The sex assault-victim incapable of appraising her condition is a class 4 felony.

The charges against Cox will require the state to prove that he had sex with the woman and that she was "physically helpless and the actor knows the victim is physically helpless and the victim has not consented."

A second count will require the state to prove that Cox knew at the time "that the victim is incapable of appraising the nature of the victim's conduct."

Cox and his attorney Harvey Steinberg attended the hearing this morning, but did not comment when they left the courtroom.

Perrish Cox's preliminary hearing set for March

Any lawyers here? What does all of that mean? I suppose it could range from having sex with a drunk woman to abusing someone who is physically or mentally handicapped.
