Texas’ 4th Court of Appeals on March 17 upheld the conviction of San Antonio solo Mary S. Roberts, who had sexual liaisons with four men whom her then-husband Ted Roberts, also an attorney, threatened with litigation unless they compensated him for his emotional distress.
In December 2007, a Bexar County jury convicted Mary Roberts of five counts of theft by deception or coercion for her role in extracting $115,000 from the four men with whom she had affairs. Judge Sid Harle of San Antonio’s 226th District Court assessed her punishment at 10 years of probation.
