Perrish Cox could face life in prison

Perrish Cox

Last week, Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox was arrested for sexual assault.  If convicted, he could be going away from a long, long time.

The Associated Press reports that Cox could face up to life in prison if convicted on either of two charges he faces, a Class 3 felony and a Class 4 felony.  The charges involve a helpless victim, and they carry sentences ranging from two years to life.

All other details regarding the case have been sealed.

That said, it’s unlikely that Cox would receive the high end of the range.  But with the details unknown for now, it’s impossible to even begin to assess whether he’s guilty, and if so the potential penalties he’d receive.

    Does he get to pass Go?

    helpless? This guy is lowest level trash.

  3. japdouds says: Dec 14, 2010 9:42 PM

    According to the sliding scale of Goodell punishment I created, a rape conviction with a life sentence would equal a $5,000 fine and no suspension from the league.

    HELPLESS VICTIM MEANS EITHER A HANDICAPPED PERSON OR A CHILD. . . SICKO

  5. richm2256 says: Dec 14, 2010 9:55 PM

    Cox needs to have a talk with Roethlisberger about avoiding jail time. Dude is an All-Pro at this.

  6. maximus929 says: Dec 14, 2010 9:57 PM

    Typical Broncos, guy gets arrested for rape and he still plays on Sunday.

    One of the most classless org.s in the NFL.

  7. ttommytom says: Dec 14, 2010 9:58 PM

    The person was asleep. Cox was touching, rubbing, trying to have sex and the person woke up.

    Cox then threatened her (or him). Covers both felonies under Colorado law.

    He’s toast for a few years and the sex perv tag.

  8. FinFan68 says: Dec 14, 2010 10:01 PM

    Wait…a lawyer is attempting to assess whether or not he is guilty? Isn’t that what the actual trial is for?

  9. giablommi says: Dec 14, 2010 10:06 PM

    It’s cool, once he serve his time and returns to the playing field in a couple years, all will be forgiven as long as he acts like he’s sorry and talks to some high school kids about what a scum bag he is, er, used to be.

    Say it with me everyone, forgiveness and second chances!!

  10. anonymouslyanonymouscommentor says: Dec 14, 2010 10:07 PM

    You’re more of a drama queen than Favre….what are the realistic chances of him getting life in prison for this? The minimum is 2 years, give me a break.

  11. bubbabart says: Dec 14, 2010 10:16 PM

    Silly Rabbit…Trix are for kids.

  12. kevo126 says: Dec 14, 2010 10:16 PM

    “The charges involve a helpless victim”

    what does that mean? a retarded person or handicapped person? that would be pretty bad

  13. sasquatch77 says: Dec 14, 2010 10:17 PM

    Guilty of rape; impossible! Cox hasn’t been on top of anyone this entire season.

  14. ctiggs says: Dec 14, 2010 10:21 PM

    leave it to PFT to make this situation alot worse than it is

  15. jackdiesel says: Dec 14, 2010 10:36 PM

    Yet another screw up by Josh McDaniels. For some teams character counts for nothing. I’m glad he got his, now it’s Cox’s turn.

  16. j0esixpack says: Dec 14, 2010 10:38 PM

    between the charges and his last name, I suspect he’ll be very “popular” in prison

  17. oldcracker says: Dec 14, 2010 10:40 PM

    WTF, You didn’t expect him to try and rape someone who could fight back did you?

    Dude needs to talk to Donte Stallworth’s lawyer. Donte can be both drunk & high, go around another car to blow through a red light, and kill a man (outside a crosswalk) and get only 30 days. Man, now that’s some kind of mouth piece!!!

  18. cowboys4life says: Dec 14, 2010 10:45 PM

    I talk alot of trash on here, but you guys are sick making jokes about this. Someone was a victim here, this goes waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond football. If I ever see this guy playing for NFL team, I will never buy anything, watch anything, and have nothing to do with the NFL for the rest of my life.

  19. ttommytom says: Dec 14, 2010 10:52 PM

    Helpless victim means a few things. But asleep seems to be what this was, according to those charges levied. (looked up Col laws).

    Life for a non-rape (sex abuse is not rape) is absurd. People don’t get life for various forms of homicide/manslaughter.

  20. thenewwisewoo says: Dec 14, 2010 10:54 PM

    @Dynasty

    Not debating you….but Flo’ was calling the VICTIM helpless – not Cox.

    In other news… so a guy named Cox gets accused of rape? This is real life irony. Hollywood can’t makes this sh** up.

  21. bspurloc says: Dec 14, 2010 10:54 PM

    yeah first offenders always get max penalty.
    same with 2nd 3rd and 4th.
    So why use the subject to spread more rumors when its well known to not even be true and right from your own fingers.

    guess it had majorly to do with “All other details regarding the case have been sealed.”

    When there is nothing create something.
    foxnews tactics.

  22. 7pints says: Dec 14, 2010 10:56 PM

    I think maximus929 was the helpless victim

  23. iptay18 says: Dec 14, 2010 11:01 PM

    “The charges involve a helpless victim, and they carry sentences ranging from two years to life.”

    A helpless victim could also describe any liberal.

  24. iptay18 says: Dec 14, 2010 11:05 PM

    Let me correct myself. Cox is more like the liberal congress, screwing the helpless people.

  25. broncosteviep says: Dec 14, 2010 11:05 PM

    “Guilty of rape; impossible! Cox hasn’t been on top of anyone this entire season.”

    LOL…funny, but he has been behind them ALL season long…maybe he just prefers it that way?

  26. mikefrommars says: Dec 14, 2010 11:11 PM

    The victim was not a child or mentally challenged.

    It’s a model from the Denver area. She has been in magazines and such…

    He just took a page from big ben.
    Rape = OK , Killing dogs, NOT OK

  28. hobartbaker says: Dec 14, 2010 11:18 PM

    He’s goin to Perish Island. That’s just before Devil’s Island as you’re headed south.

  29. hobartbaker says: Dec 14, 2010 11:22 PM

    Cox was throwing a blanket over the Bronco receivers in practice. Practically smothering them. It was a matter of time before someone reported him.

  30. dallassux says: Dec 14, 2010 11:38 PM

    Maybe Tashard choice will ask for his autograph.

  31. cornellsteelers says: Dec 14, 2010 11:40 PM

    Wow, that’s odd. It seems like some sexual assault cases have far more evidence than others, and that when they do have tangible evidence the alleged assaulter is in big trouble. And when there isn’t any good evidence the charges can get dropped regardless of how much certain people want them to be true. Facts are funny things…

  32. hobartbaker says: Dec 15, 2010 12:24 AM

    Prison, Unable to Play.

  33. sweetnlow44 says: Dec 15, 2010 12:38 AM

    If he was a big fat QB for the Stealers, it’d be nothing but a slap on the hand. If Cox wants protection from the league, he’s playing for the wrong team. Rooney has something on Goodell.

  34. jhorton83 says: Dec 15, 2010 12:48 AM

    All other details regarding this case have been sealed? What the hell does that even mean? Did he rape someone at Area 51 or something?

  35. richm2256 says: Dec 15, 2010 1:09 AM

    Hey, where is the defender of sexually accused NFL perverts, the infamous Deb? Not a word here?

    Oh, that’s right, Cox isn’t a quarterback, and he’s, um……. not white. He can fry then, right?

  36. mcdeezznuts says: Dec 15, 2010 1:12 AM

    @cowboys4life
    I agree, its messed up if its as bad as it sounds. Though not. Retarded person, whatever idiot thought that up.

    All that said, I wouldn’t mind one less cowboys fan.

  37. fellorio says: Dec 15, 2010 1:14 AM

    But with the details unknown for now, it’s impossible to even begin to assess whether he’s guilty

    Sounds like somebody has begun to assess. Based on what we don’t know. But Goodall is quaking in his cowboy boots.

    ===================================
    The Eagles will pick him up after he serves two weeks for good behavior, he’ll become an all pro, football talking heads will slobber all over him and all will be forgiven…sound familiar?

    Not this one. This central PA liberal believes in protecting and exercising all of my rights, including the right to keep and bear arms. I’m far from the only one. You should watch less Fox News and pay more attention to reality. Not everyone in the world falls into one of their stereotypes.

  40. canjura says: Dec 15, 2010 3:15 AM

    You can’t even begin to compare Mike Vick to Perrish Cox. Mike Vick was hurting DOGS (ANIMALS, regardless of how much you guys make love to your dogs, errrrrr, love your dogs, it’s still an animal) while IF TRUE, which I’m not saying Cox is guilty of anything, sexually assaulted a person. You can’t even begin to put the two in the same boat.

  41. bigjb123 says: Dec 15, 2010 6:19 AM

    DIDNT HE PLAY LAST WEEK? VICK DID HIS TIME SAT OUT 2 YRS AND PEOPLE ARE STILL PISSED HE IS PLAYING NOW WERE S ALL THE OUTRAGE ABOUT THIS GUY?

  42. tbssic says: Dec 15, 2010 6:31 AM

    USA,,,,,, means United States of Amnesia.
    If he plays well,,,,, we will forget……..
    Ray Lewis,,, Mike Vick and on and on and on…..
    All you need to do in this country,,,,, to be a hero,,, is to be famous….
    In days gone by,,,, you had to be a hero before you were famous….
    Sad,,,, very sad….

  43. jlb10 says: Dec 15, 2010 8:54 AM

    reading the denver papers it sounds like she was drunk and he had sex with her OR he slipped her a roofie.
    amazing how he can have charges brought up against him yet big ben can tell the cops he is not talking to them and that is that in that case. how does that happen?

  44. beauregard says: Dec 15, 2010 9:46 AM

    “Helpless Victim” more than likely means she was very drunk or drugged.
    This guy is a classless thug.
    Denver knew about his character issues when they drafted him. What do they think? That a guy who is a thug in college is going to suddenly turn into a citizen when he turns pro and has much more money and fame?
    Say what you want about Tebow, but you’ll never see this happening to him.

  45. breeshasabush says: Dec 15, 2010 9:59 AM

    myspaceyourface: HELPLESS can mean she was drunk or high and then when she realized what shed done and her BF was PISSED she screamed…RAPE (happens all the time)! That being said THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS when we allow players like ben rapist, mike vick, Stallworth, leonard little, ray lewis BACK into the NFL with just a slap on the wrist. Players devlop a God complex and think that everything they do will go without consequence(which it does with the exception of Plaxico)!

    and for richm2256: Let me take you down a few notches and and break it down for you…. 95% of the NFL is black so when a crime is comitted by an NFL PLAYER, chances are its going to be by a black guy. In Bens case, he’s been regarded as the biggest scumbag (and he is a scumbag) in the NFL when he wasn’t even convicted of anything (Mike Vick was but suddenly hes a hero). STOP BRINGING THE RACE CARD INTO EVERYTHING bc it shows how ignorant and clueless you people really are…yes i said “you people” and since you’re ignorant what i mean by that is “simple minded people who’s shortcut to thinking is to use the race card”……..let it go and if you are Black why dont you EMBRACE it instead of being insecure about it… douche

  46. ninjapleazee says: Dec 15, 2010 10:15 AM

    LOL.. I love the comments.

  47. richm2256 says: Dec 15, 2010 10:59 AM

    @breeshasabush
    Typical PFT idiot….. my point wasn’t about blacks in the NFL being guilty of a crime versus whites. It was about Deb’s clear racial bias as to which NFL player, accused of sexual deviation, she comes to the defense of.

    Deb has come to the same defense of both Roethlisberger and Favre, both white, both NFL quarterbacks. I have not ever seen her come to the defense of any NFL player accused of a sexual assault or incident who was A) not a quarterback, B) not white.

    If “95% of the NFL is black” (and where did you find THAT fact?), then that makes Deb’s defense of two white quarterbacks stand out even MORE as “racist”.

    My feelings are simple. If you are accused of a sexual crime, there should be a THOROUGH investigation – emphasis on the word “thorough”, regardless of your race or profession. If there is evidence of a sexual crime, you should be arrested and prosecuted – NOT given a chance to pay off your victim, a la Roethlisberger and Favre (who ultimately proved too cheap and too stupid to realize the benefit of paying Sterger off early).

    “let it go and if you are Black why dont you EMBRACE it instead of being insecure about it… douch”

    I am probably the whitest white guy you could meet, but why should that stop you from writing something you have no idea about. But go ahead and hide behind the word “if”. Talk about making an assumption! And YOU’RE the one calling ME a “racist”?

    We will do everything possible to prove Perrish Cox is innocent! He is not a Steeler!!
