Ex-MSU football player Auston Robertson arrested in Kansas on 4 charges

20 April 2018

Third-degree criminal sexual conduct is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Auston Robertson, a former Michigan State University football player awaiting trial on sex assault charges, had his bond in Ingham County revoked Thursday due to an alleged robbery in Kansas.

Canady revoked Robertson's bond at a hearing Thursday morning after learning he had been arrested again.

Robertson faces multiple charges including aggravated armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, possession and distribution of marijuana, and interfering with law enforcement officers.

Robertson's sexual assault trial had been scheduled for May.

Robertson was arrested by the Garden City Police Department on Tuesday and is being held at the Finney County Jail in Garden City, according to a release from Siemon's office.

He moved to Kansas and played football at a local community college, which is why he left MI.

The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office said they believe the courts are taking the right steps to deal with this issue.

"It is always disconcerting when a criminal defendant fails the conditions of their bond and we believe the courts have now taken the proper action", said Siemon. He is expected to be formally charged next week.

Robertson was granted bond conditions which allowed him to travel outside of the state of MI.

Mark Dantonio dismissed him from the program in April 2017 after the sexual assault charges surfaced. He's reportedly now being held on $300,000 bond in Kansas.

Garden City Police would not release any details leading up to the arrest.

We are saddened to hear about this latest incident for Auston Robertson.
