Broncos CB Perrish Cox facing felony sex assault charges

And he's still playing. This despite being charged with sexually assaulting a helpless woman who wasn't capable of defending herself.

Yes, it sounds a little strange, but yet it isn't. It appears that Perrish Cox according to reports, forced himself on the woman and a complaint was filed, on October 28th. We are assuming that the investigation took some time as Cox wasn't arrested until this past Thursday.

More from the Denver Post RIGHT HERE

Yes, I know we mentioned that Cox played in Sunday's game. Legally, he could. He was free on a $50,000 bond. According to league rules, the case can be investigated by the NFL and Cox could be subject to the league personal conduct rules. And in fact he still may be. But he hasn't yet.

The charges, which still could be either a 3rd or 4th degree felony depending on some of the semantics, could carry anywhere from 2 years to life in prison. And while we don't think Mr. Cox will get life, he better get a good lawyer because he's in a lot of trouble. We'll monitor and see just how much trouble that will be.
