A Colorado jury has acquitted former Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox of sexual assault charges.

The jury returned the verdict Friday morning.

Cox sighed and hugged his attorney after the verdict was read. The alleged victim let out an audible sigh and a cry and said: "Oh my God, what's happening?"

Cox was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in September 2010 after a night of partying. The alleged victim became pregnant, and prosecutors said DNA tests indicated Cox was the father.

The woman testified that she believed she was drugged because she remembers little about what happened.

Cox denied having sex with the woman. His lawyer disputed the DNA test results and suggested they may have been contaminated.

Cox was charged with two counts of sexual assault. He could have faced two years to life in prison.

    What happened to the child? Maybe he paid her off - 18 years child support. Poor lady.

    To condoms anyone. Thank you for correctly pointing out that poor choices and a lack of impulse control on the part of BOTH parties has resulted in yet another child being brought into this world that was a result and not something that was desired and wanted. For that, the child will usually be the one that pays.

      Obviously you are not familiar with the economic conditions of a washed up football player. 5th round draft pick in 2010, one crappy season, cut and no football for the 2011 season. Prospects almost zero. He has been paying lawyers for the last year and a half so bring on the civil suit and the child support. Half of nothing is nothing. Surprise move would be for him to sue for custody and child support.

    Ummmmmmm Black women, for the most part...NOT ALL BUT MOST, are crazy drama queens! Black men are dating white women because they are treated better. Get your facts right first, "the springs".

    Another man too stupid to use a condom when with a woman he knows nothing about. Another woman too stupid to take responsibility for what happens to her own body.

    I get it now. This girl doesn't know what is happening during times of high stress. So let me explain. You just had a baby with an unemployed black man. You have an unemployed black man in your life for the next 18 years. If you thought a rape that you don't remember was the worst thing that could happen, you are in for a real treat. Don't bother to sue, his money is gone. You are his money now.

    Probably not a good idea to visit Cox if you don't want one.
