Denver, CO (Sports Network) - According to a published report on Sunday, a Colorado grand jury has handed out an indictment in relationship to the use of escorts used to sway football recruits to attend the University of Colorado.
The Denver Post does not include any names in the indictment, but states that the actual indictment could be released within weeks.
Colorado has been accused of using alcohol-fueled sex parties to lure football players to the school.
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.
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.
