CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) – An arrest affidavit detailing the sexual assault allegations against Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox will be released next week without the name of the accuser and a friend to protect their privacy.

District Court Judge Paul King on Wednesday sided with The Associated Press and The Denver Post, who argued for the document’s unsealing. King ruled that neither prosecutors nor Cox defense attorney Harvey Steinberg presented sufficient evidence that the affidavit’s release would jeopardize Cox’s right to a fair trial.

Cox is charged with one count of sexual assault while the victim was physically helpless and one count of sexual assault while the victim was incapable of determining the nature of the conduct.

Cox has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go on trial in October.
