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.
