Former KTXL Anchor Sabrina Rodriguez has a date with the judge this morning.
Rodriguez has a hearing in her shoplifting case along with her ex-boyfriend that may resolve the legal case against her.
A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on three felony charges against the 31-year-old Emmy-award winning broadcast journalist, who resigned from her job at the station in August after the charges were filed.
She has been out of custody on $10,000 bail since the filing of the charges, which allege that she was involved in a shoplifting scheme with her ex-fiance, Nicholas Gray. Gray, 31, has been held at the Sacramento County Jail without bail since his July 31 arrest on shoplifting, drug and other charges.
Gray is scheduled to appear in the same courtroom today for a hearing in his case, which includes allegations that he boasted of shoplifting up to $200,000 in clothing in a two-month span.
Gray also faces charges of drug possession and manufacture, as well as causing a blaze and explosion at the couple’s south Sacramento home that allegedly was sparked by his efforts to manufacture hash oil from marijuana.
Rodriguez split from Gray shortly after the case was filed. She "resigned" from the station to, " take time to clear her good name."
