Former San Antonio Spur Alvin Robertson's name was cleared late Monday, after a judge dismissed sex trafficking, sexual assault of a child and forcing sexual performance by a child charges, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Robertson, who played for the Spurs from 1984 to 1989, was accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old San Antonio runaway and forcing the child to have sex with and dance for people at a Corpus Christi nightclub.

However, a civil case between the Corpus Christi strip club and the runaway's family revealed that teen's stories were lies, as they fell apart and changed under scrutiny, and it turned out she actually met Robertson just once, during a meet-and-greet, the Express-News reports.

Robertson told the newspaper that since his arrest in 2010, the ordeal has been a nightmare and a long, trying experience, but he's glad to have it behind him.
