The boy was taken to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center for a sex assault exam,, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.

During a forensic interview, the boy told the interviewer he asked Robinson to take him to school. When Robinson arrived at the house, she performed oral sex on him, the boy told the interviewer.

When interviewed by detectives, Robinson admitted removing her pants, according to court documents. She said the boy also took off his pants, but she denied performing oral sex on him.

Robinson gave police a DNA sample, which matched saliva found on the boy’s genitals, court documents state.
