Police seek help locating Robertson after sex crime charge

Robertson is the only player so far to be publicly named.

Ingham County Prosecutor Carol Siemon announced that Robertson, 19, was charged in the 55th District Court one day after her office received the results of an investigation by police from Meridian Township, near Michigan State's campus in East Lansing. Prosecutors didn't say much else about the charge, but a police detective testified in court today and discussed details of the case. Robertson entered a diversionary program for those charges last March and finished his probation last month.

They have been suspended from the team since the reports of the alleged sexual assaults in February.

That alleged sexual assault occurred in the early morning hours of January 16 on campus at University Village Apartments and was reported to MSU Police a day later. While there is an ongoing criminal process, we're extremely disappointed that Auston put himself in this position. During a hearing on Friday in 55th District Court to authorize charges, detective Rebecca Payne testified Robertson had acknowledged his return to his home state of in for four days. He is no longer a member of our football program. Despite these measures, Auston broke our trust and expectations by putting himself in a compromising situation. However, just a week after the spring game, which he participated in, Robertson made his biggest mistake yet. This was a multiple-step process that continued through his final admission in the summer.

"We will continue to educate and enforce high standards for the program", Dantonio said, via MLive.com. "I expect all of our players to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects the values and principles of Michigan State University", Dantonio said then. Their names have not been released. Recruiting director Curtis Blackwell also was suspended in relation to the case.

Local 4 is not naming the three players facing rape accusations because they haven't been charged.
