Indictment handed out in Colorado scandal

Denver, CO (Sports Network) - A Colorado grand jury Tuesday indicted former Colorado recruiting aide Nathan Maxcey on counts of soliciting a prostitute and misusing a school cell phone.

The grand jury was investigating whether alcohol and sex were used to sway football recruits into attending the University of Colorado.

The school has been accused of using alcohol-fueled sex parties to lure players. A commission, which was set up by university regents, stated that players provided alcohol, sex and drugs for recruits, but claimed that there was no proof that school officials "knowingly sanctioned" the events.

Nine women have accused football players of rape since 1997, although no charges have been filed. Several others have filed federal lawsuits claiming they were sexually assaulted by football players or recruits.

Football coach Gary Barnett, athletic director Richard Tharp, numerous players and Pasha Cowan, the former manager of an escort service, have all testified.

University president Betsy Hoffman announced in late May that Barnett would keep his job despite the scandal.

The charges against Maxcey were the only ones to come out of the investigation by the grand jury, which had been listening to testimony since May.

There was no mention of university officials, students or recruits in the indictment, which charges Maxcey with misdemeanor solicitation for prostitution and two felonies -- embezzlement of public property and theft, both related to the use of a school cell phone to contact a dating chat line.
