New charges have been filed against Robert Corbin in Starke Circuit Court.

Corbin, 30, pleaded not guilty to charges of sexual misconduct with a minor as a Class B felony and two counts of child seduction as a Class C felony and as a Class D felony. He allegedly had sexual intercourse and exchanged inappropriate messages with a then-15-year-old female in between January and March of 2012. He was employed at the Knox High School at the time of these alleged incidents.

Judge Kim Hall set his bond at $3,000 cash. He will retain his current counsel who is representing him in an active case that is set for trial on Jan. 14. In that case, Corbin allegedly sent inappropriate Facebook messages to a then-16-year-old student in 2012.

That case began in Starke Circuit Court where Corbin’s attorney filed a motion to dismiss the case where he was charged with two felony counts of attempted child seduction. That motion was denied by Judge Kim Hall. An appeal was filed which overturned Judge Hall’s ruling. The Indiana Supreme Court filed a decision in late September that affirmed Judge Hall’s denial of the motion to dismiss.

Corbin’s attorney requested a continuance in the Jan. 14 trial in light of these new charges, but Judge Hall denied the request. The trial will begin at 9 a.m. that day.
