Victim denies consensual sex

The teen-ager accusing former Green Bay Packers star Mark Chmura of sexually assaulting her at a drunken post-prom party testified Monday she never had consensual sex with him.

'Never at any time,' the 18-year-old woman told Waukesha County District Attorney Paul Bucher.

The teen-ager, who had baby-sat for Chmura's children, has accused Chmura of pulling her into the bathroom, pulling down her pants and having sex with her without her consent in a matter of seconds during the April 9 party at his friend Robert Gessert's home.

Chmura, 31, has pleaded innocent to third-degree sexual assault and child enticement, both felonies.

Denver's new football stadium sold its name for a pile of cash that's a mile high.

Disregarding the wishes of the mayor and many fans to preserve the name simply as 'Mile High Stadium,' the new home of the Broncos will be 'Invesco Field at Mile High.'

Invesco Funds Group, a financial services company, will pay $120 million for 20 years to have its name on the stadium. The Metropolitan Football Stadium District Board accepted the offer Monday on an 8-1 vote.
