Perrish Cox awaiting a verdict this afternoon.

What was considered by many to be an open-and-shut case when it got underway Monday has ended on Friday with the acquittal of Perrish Cox.

The former Denver Broncos cornerback was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his apartment less than a week before his first NFL game. He claimed he never had sex with his accuser, but that appeared to backfire when she became pregnant and prosecutors claimed a DNA test proved he was the father.

Ultimately, the Colorado prosecutor wasn’t able to convince a jury that Cox was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and Cox is a free man.

From the Associated Press:

Cox hugged his attorney after the verdict was read, while the alleged victim let out an audible sigh and a cry. As she was leaving the courtroom, she said, ”Oh my God, what’s happening?”

In addition to being a free man, Cox is now a free agent. I get the feeling, though, that this acquittal might not be enough to repair Cox’s reputation in the court of public opinion or in the eyes of the 32 potential employers he’ll surely try to gain employment with.

  1. Jerome Simpson bought a bunch of weed to smoke and had it shipped from California. Yesterday he was found guilty and faces a felony and jail time.

    Perrish Cox raped a woman and impregnated her with a DNA test proving he did it. Today he was found innocent.

    Does this bother anyone else?

    • No, not at all. I have know a few who have cried “rape” or “I’m pregnant” and trust me the guys in question had no future in the NFL or even any promissing career paths. Some women just don’t like being rejected before or after any type of long or short term relationship. Who would take someone to their own appt to rape or sexualy assault someone? Doesn’t make sense to me. As for Jerome, who the hell “ships” drugs in this day in age unless your a cartel or been doing it since the late 70′s or 80′s.

      So no, doesn’t bother me. Mike’s dog fighting had a little more of an impact on me and probably many others.

  2. Would you elaborate then moron……
