Michigan State football player Auston Robertson is facing a sexual assault charge after police said he raped a woman in her apartment. Robertson had walked the woman to her apartment sometime after 11 p.m. on April 8 to make sure she got there safely, and then once they were inside the apartment he "forcefully" had sex with the woman despite her "telling him to stop and telling him no," Meridian Township Police Detective Rebecca Payne testified during a hearing Friday morning. Robertson, 19, of Fort Wayne, Ind., faces a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. Court records indicate that as of Friday afternoon he had not been formally arraigned on the charge. Online court records don’t list an attorney of record for Robertson. The incident that led to charges against Robertson is separate from the ongoing criminal investigation into three other unnamed MSU players and a staff member who the university announced were suspended Feb. 9.
