Robertson facing 2 charges


Former Michigan State and Wayne football player Auston Robertson will face trial on two charges of third-degree sexual conduct, a judge ruled Thursday.

Robertson was arraigned in April on one county of third degree sexual conduct but prosecutors added a second count Thursday based on the testimony of the alleged victims.

Robertson's attorneys said during Thursday's hearing .Robertson has been offered an opportunity to play football at a junior college in Mississippi this fall. The attorneys requested bond conditions be amended and a GPS tether be removed so Robertson can move and begin classes.
