Robinson was in court for a pretrial hearing Monday morning in front of District Court Judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines. It’s another adjournment in the case that began when Robinson was charged with malicious destruction of property worth more than $200 but less than $1,000 on Feb. 4.

Robinson is accused of destroying a parking gate arm at a parking garage. Douglas E. Lewis, Robinson’s lawyer, indicated he is still waiting for video evidence.

Robinson is scheduled to appear again at 9 a.m. July 16.

The Canton, Ohio, native participated in all of Michigan’s spring camp activities and is a leading candidate to start at one of the receiver spots in the fall.

He faces a maximum of one year in jail and a $2,000 fine if convicted.

It would be a change of pace to see these so-called student athletes in the news for some good deed occasionally... instead of petty crimes and under-age drinking. And why is it always football and basketball players? (rhetorical question)

This is true, you almost never see a gymnast, golfer, baseballer, or swimmer in the headlines for bad personal conduct.
