Cox in court on rape charge after Broncos release

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) - Defense attorneys for former Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox are sparring with prosecutors over a recording of statements he made in a holding cell after detectives interviewed him about sexual assault allegations.

The content of the recording wasn't disclosed at a court hearing Friday.

Cox faces charges of sexual assault against someone who was physically helpless in his apartment last year and sexual assault against someone who was incapable of determining the nature of the conduct.

A judge didn't rule on a motion to suppress the recorded statements or a motion by the defense to sanction prosecutors because the defense didn't receive a recording of the statements until last month, which was nine months after the statements were made.

Cox and his attorney had no comment after the hearing.
