Michigan State player charged with criminal sexual conduct

Free Press: Robertson charged in Mich. sex-misconduct case

A Michigan State football player has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Three other MSU players are under investigation for the alleged rape of a coed on campus.

Robertson was suspended from the team after the incident on Sunday, April 9, according to the Detroit Free Press. None of those football players have been identified and none have been formally charged.

When the latest allegation came to light, Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement at the time: "We will continue to educate and enforce high standards for the program". The student who said she was sexually assaulted reported what happened, and the university has two investigations ongoing.

Ingham County Prosecuting Attorney Carol Siemon released details of the charge this morning.

This investigation is not connected to another case involving three Michigan State players and a football staff member.

According to Scout.com, Robertson was a 4-star prospect out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, prior to committing to Michigan State.

In March, Robertson entered a diversionary program.

Curtis Blackwell, the team's director of college advancement and performance, has been placed on paid leave.

The charges were sworn in 55th District Court earlier today by Meridian Township Police, who are conducting the investigation.

The prosecutor will now review that report and make a decision on charges. Three of the warrants were for sexual crimes and the fourth was for a nonsexual crime during their investigation.
