COA counselor convicted of forgery, identity theft

A College of Alameda counselor was convicted of multiple felony charges, including forgery and identity theft, Monday in Alameda County Superior Court.

Dr. Shirley Robinson, 69, was taken into custody March 1 and transported to Santa Rita Jail where she awaits a March 29 sentencing date.

The charges resulted from a 1998 real estate/business transaction with Robinson's long-time friend and former COA colleague Alze Roberts. Robinson was initially arrested March 2009, according to Alameda County Sheriff's Office Inmate Locator.

There is also related civil litigation, originally filed 2006.

Robinson, COA head counselor and member of the college's curriculum committee, was employed in the Peralta Community College District for over 40 years. She is on sabbatical, according to COA web documents.

Roberts was a COA counselor from 1989 until her retirement in 2008. She declined to speak prior to the sentencing hearing.
