Robinson returns to jail

Wide receiver in Minnesota to serve time as part of former legal issues

Packers wide receiver Koren Robinson is serving time in Nicollet County Jail in St. Peter, Minn., the Nicollet County Sheriff's office confirmed.

Robinson was admitted into the jail on July 18, and he is set to be released on Aug. 2.

Robinson is serving a one-year suspension from the National Football League. He can apply for reinstatement in September. The time he is serving in the Minnesota jail is not related to new legal issues, according to the sheriff's office.

Robinson served time in the jail last year after he was charged with a felony count of fleeing a police officer, two misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree driving while impaired, and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, careless driving and driving after his North Carolina license was suspended.

Robinson was released by the Minnesota Vikings in training camp last year, then signed a two-year contract with the Packers in early September.

Robinson was sentenced to jail last fall, and served half of the sentence in Minnesota before he was transferred to Green Bay's Brown County Jail to serve the last 45 days of the sentence on ankle monitoring. He had been working at a local hospital and working out in Green Bay prior to returning to Nicollet County, near Mankato, Minn.
