Judge Bars Taped Statement Of Ex-Broncos CB Perrish Cox In Assault Trial

A judge ruled Tuesday that a videotaped statement by former Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox made in a holding cell can’t be used at his upcoming sexual assault trial, but a written summary of his statements will be allowed.

The decision by District Judge Paul King dealt a blow to Cox’s defense after his attorney had asked for the suppression of the video and another recording made while at the police department. King disallowed the video of the jailhouse interview as a sanction for a delay by prosecutors in giving defense attorneys a copy of it. King said his decision was partly to “level the playing field” between prosecutors and the defense.
