Ted Roberts, a Texas lawyer convicted on theft charges for extracting money from men who allegedly had sexual liaisons with his wife, will seek a new trial, says his attorney Michael McCrum. Last week, Judge Sid Harle in San Antonio sentenced Roberts to five years for each of the three charges on which a jury convicted him in March. McCrum says Roberts will argue in his motion for a new trial that the charges prosecutors proved did not match the offenses they alleged in the indictment.
