Alvin Robertson Rumors

All NBA Players

Authorities say former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson has been arrested after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Robertson was arrested Monday afternoon at a San Antonio apartment complex. Officials say he’d been on the run since Jan. 5 after cutting off the monitor. Sheriff’s officials say Robertson, a former NBA All-Star whose career ended in 1996, was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution. He’d been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor.
Former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson had been set to appear in court Monday to ask for less restrictive bond conditions while awaiting trial on a child sex trafficking charge. But the hearing was cancelled after the ex-Spur failed to show. Attorneys and representatives from Bexar County Pretrial Services waited about 20 minutes in 399th state District Court. Because his whereabouts are tracked with a GPS ankle monitor, the group was able to determine that he was still at home.
For the third time this year, Bexar County authorities have arrested former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson. Robertson, 48, a San Antonio resident who played with the Spurs from 1984 to 1989, was arrested Friday night. He has been awaiting trial since February on a first-degree felony sex trafficking of a minor charge. Earlier Friday, state District Judge Juanita Vasquez-Gardner ordered that his bail be increased from $150,000 to $200,000 after a Bexar County Pretrial Services bond officer raised allegations that he met with a co-defendant and has ignored a no-contact order regarding an alleged adult victim.
The alleged victim “stated he calls her to come to his house to bring him beer, which she admits to doing,” bond officer Rose De Los Santos wrote in a letter to the court. Robertson “has also mentioned that he has contact with the (woman), but that the calls and visits are initiated by (her). “She stated she no longer wants to proceed prosecuting the defendant because of their personal history together; she just doesn’t approve of his activities with the child victim in his charges.”
