Ex-footballer Leroy Robinson had to answer for a shocking act before a court in Birmingham. He incited a girl (14) to commit sexual acts via smartphone. A court has now sentenced the Aston Villa star.
Leroy Robinson (34) used to be an up-and-coming football talent. In his youth he played for Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion. He had a great career ahead of him, but his dream fell through. After that, his life was out of whack and he became addicted to drugs and alcohol. He has now been convicted by the Birmingham Court for his criminal acts. There it emerged that he should have encouraged a girl to engage in sexual acts.
Did Leroy Robinson molest a girl?
Like the portal “Metro.co.uk” reported that Leroy Robinson made friends with the 14-year-old in the summer. He got her phone number and they texted each other. “He asked her to perform sexual acts on him. He also sent her graphic pictures of herself and asked her to do the same,” Prosecutor Simon Bruch told the judge. Eventually the mother of the teenagers discovered the chat history and showed the former kicker.
“During his arrest, he denied any sexual motivation and also denied sending her graphic pictures,” said Bruch. The girl said that she was initially pleased to receive attention from an older man. She didn’t have a boyfriend yet. However, she felt uncomfortable when he started sending her messages of a sexual nature, she testified. This friendship left its mark on her. She suffers from anxiety, cannot sleep properly and no longer wants to stay with friends.

Soccer star Leroy Robinson has been convicted of sexual acts
Last Tuesday, Leroy Robinson was sentenced to 40 months’ imprisonment for sex with a child and robbery. The robbery occurred on May 10, 2019. He hit homeless Daniel Darren and stole his cellphone and bank card. In addition, he is entered in the sex criminal record.
His defense attorney Zaheer Afzal said his client regretted the actions. Although he had meanwhile studied sports psychology and got his life back on track, that would not excuse his actions, the judge said.
“The girl had a crush on you and you took advantage of it. You sent her sexual messages of the most graphic nature, including requests to have penetrative sex with you. It was only her mother, who saw the messages on her phone, that did so End. That was horrific behavior, “said the judge in his plea.
