EAST LANSING, Mich. — A Michigan State and former Wayne High School football player has been charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Ingham County prosecutors announced the charge Friday against 19-year-old Auston Robertson. The charges stem from an April 9 incident in Meridian Township, near the East Lansing school.
Prosecutors say they don't know if Robertson has an attorney. The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment from Robertson, who hasn't been arraigned.
Three other players are part of a sexual assault investigation following a January incident. All four players have been suspended.
The Detroit Free Press reports that "a third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge relates to alleged non-consensual sexual penetration with force or coercion, the victim being incapacitated or other factors. Online court records indicate Robertson's charge involves force or coercion."
If convicted, Robertson could face penalties ranging up to 15 years in prison.
