Ex-Employee Is Indicted in Colorado Football Case

August 25, 2004|From Associated Press

DENVER — A grand jury investigation into whether alcohol and sex were used to entice Colorado football recruits ended with an indictment against only one person -- a former low-level school employee accused Tuesday of soliciting a prostitute for himself.

The grand jury accused only Nathan Maxcey in its indictment, making no mention of university officials, students or recruits. It decided against an indictment on a charge of "pimping," which accused Maxcey of setting up prostitutes for others at a dorm room and hotels used by the Colorado football program.

The indictments were handed up last week but were not made public until Tuesday.

Maxcey, 28, did not immediately return a call.

Maxcey is charged with misdemeanor solicitation for prostitution and two felonies: embezzlement of public property and theft, both related to allegations he used a school cell phone to call a dating chat line.

Early this year, three women filed lawsuits alleging they were raped by football recruits or players who attended an off-campus party in December 2001.

Since 1997, nine women have made similar allegations.
