Cobb Police arrested Robinson on Dec. 19 and charged him with sexual battery. He still faces that misdemeanor charge in state court. However, the school board voted 4-2 last week to reinstate Robinson, after a tribunal of three school board members, with one member dissenting, found insufficient evidence to fire Robinson.
District spokesman Jay Dillon said officials have not yet found a school for the counselor. Dillon said because of Robinson's bond conditions, he is not allowed to return to Lassiter, so his guidance counseling position at that high school has already been filled. The district will have to add a position at another school for Robinson, something they had not been able to decide on as of late Wednesday.
Robinson's attorney, Warren Fortson, said that he would follow up with the district about Robinson's reassignment on Tuesday.
"That sounds like a lot of excuses," Fortson said of Dillon's explanation of why Robinson had not yet returned to work.
Regarding Robinson's criminal case, Solicitor General Barry Morgan said that Robinson's arraignment was originally set for Friday, but has been postponed to April 19 because of the continuing investigation. State Court Judge Toby Prodgers will preside over the arraignment, at which time Robinson can enter a plea. The judge will also set the trial date.
