Former All Black's sentencing postponed
The sentencing of former All Black Keith Robinson on a drink-driving charge has again been postponed.
Judge Tompkins stood the matter down to be heard by Judge Marshall on December 20.
Robinson was remanded on bail.
Robinson pleaded guilty in July to a charge of driving with an excess blood-alcohol level and driving while disqualified for the third subsequent time.
He was caught driving with excessive blood-alcohol on State Highway 26 on May 12 after police officers saw his vehicle cross the centre-line.
He returned a reading of 115 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood.
He told police at the time that he knew he was over the limit, but was 100 metres from home.
Robinson was also before the court in January after admitting to assaulting a man during a pub crawl in Te Aroha last year.
He was sentenced in January to 300 hours of community work and nine months' supervision, and ordered to pay his victim $1000 reparation and attend an anger-management course, which he had voluntarily enrolled in.
