Excerpted from “Roberts Jr. looks to make early transition into politics” (The Missouri Times)
Although his law career has been short thus far, Roberts, a St. Louis native, has experience in different aspects of law. During his time at Pepperdine University’s Law School, he served as legal research coordinator for the Counsel to Secure Justice in New Delhi, India. After he graduated in 2013, he moved to California to work as in-house counsel for AP Wireless Infrastructure Partners, LLC, and he then took a massive pay cut to come back to St. Louis and work in the circuit attorney’s office.
Now, he works on his campaign full-time, and he wants to use his experiences within the legal system to work towards criminal justice reform.
