Authorities have busted up a sex-trafficking ring accused of forcing a 14-year-old girl to have sex last year with men throughout San Antonio and Corpus Christi, and the group includes former Spurs guard and NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson.

Seven people are allegedly tied to the ring, which also includes an R&B performer and a man charged with bribing an official at the Greater Kelly Development Authority, the board that oversaw Kelly USA, the business park formed after the military’s closure of Kelly AFB.

Of the seven, Robertson, who played for the Spurs from 1984 to 1989 and was a one-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, was the last to be arrested, said Deputy Ino Badillo, a spokesman for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, which led the investigation.
