Advocacy group protests imprisonment of local father

EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

A local advocacy group, Stop Parental Bullying, in association my Atlanta-based My Advocate Center, is protesting the imprisonment of a local father.

Robbie Roberson was jailed after unknowingly violating a court order which prohibited him from seeing his daughter. Roberson is involved in a contentious custody dispute.

"Under the advice of his attorney, he thought he could go have lunch with his daughter," said Ron Burton, from Stop Parental Bullying. "He went to the elementary school, and had lunch with his daughter. And he didn't try to attempt to snatch her and run off with her, he just went and had lunch with his daughter."

Advocates said Roberson is seeking legal counsel outside the area to assist in dismissing the charges.
