UPDATE: Robertson has been kicked off the team

Michigan State defensive lineman Auston Robertson has been charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in Meridian Township earlier this month.

Chris Solari from The Detroit Free Press broke the news Friday morning:

Robertson’s case is not related to the January incident that led to the suspension of three other MSU football players and one staffer.

News of the sexual assault allegedly perpetrated by Robertson, who was a freshman for the Spartans this past fall, broke last week. MSU head coach Mark Dantonio said Robertson was suspended on April 9.

It’s the second time Robertson, 19, has been accused of misconduct against a woman. His signing with MSU in 2016 when he was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from his alleged improper touching of a female classmate at Wayne High School in Fort Wayne, Ind.

Robertson ended up signing with the Spartans about three weeks after his arrest in 2016. He completed a diversionary program as part of that case just last month, according to Solari.

Robertson played in seven games as a true freshman for MSU in 2016. The 6-foot-4, 281-pound defensive end recorded three total tackles and forced one fumble.

Third-degree criminal sexual conduct is a felony in Michigan punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment.
