Three Michigan State University football players were charged with unarmed robbery Wednesday. Linebacker SirDarean Adams and defensive backs T.J. Williams and Jeremy Ware were arraigned in 55th District Court. We don't know the details of the crime except that it happened last April. MSU football coach Mark Dantonio says he was notified around the same time. He says the players are still on the team and will continue to play in games until the legal process is finished. He released the following statement to News 10:
“We were notified about an alleged incident back in late April, and this week charges were filed. We have closely monitored this situation for over six months. Throughout this process, our student-athletes have been cooperative with the authorities, and they have maintained their innocence to all parties involved. In fairness to the student-athletes alleged to have been involved in the incident, the prudent decision is to allow the legal process to continue to run its full course and for the truth to be determined. These student-athletes will remain on the roster and continue to have the opportunity to play in games. We take allegations of this nature very seriously, and we will not discuss this issue any further until there’s a legal resolution.”
