After her arrest in a big shoplifting case, former KTXL Anchor Sabrina Rodriguez wasted no time in dumping her boyfriend, who was also arrested.

But as fate would have it, the two will be together again when their case goes to trial.

A judge approved the prosecution’s request to have the shoplifting charges against the former anchor and her ex-boyfriend consolidated into one case.

Rodriguez did not show up to court and let her lawyer handle the motions.  Her former fiancé, Nicholas Gray, was ushered into the courtroom in handcuffs.

Rodriquez’s lawyer added that depending on future evidence and new information in the case, they could decide not to join in the future.

According to court documents, Rodriguez drove fiancé Nicholas Gray to San Francisco to help sell stolen goods. Included in the court documents are alleged texts between the couple that reveal a theft conspiracy.

On August 5, Rodriguez issued a statement noting that she has broken off her relationship with Gray. “As of today I have severed my ties with Nick Gray. I am now focusing on life decisions as I move forward with the support of family, friends, viewers and the community,” Rodriguez wrote.

Her attorney told KOVR he’s going to work hard to restore her good name and reputation and believes she is innocent.

Good luck with that.
