An Atlanta businessman and former chairman of the city’s tourism bureau has been indicted on two counts of rape in Massachusetts, according to the local police
Michael Robison, a founder and former chairman of Lanier Parking Solutions, one of Atlanta’s largest parking companies has been charged with three counts of rape of an individual over 14 in the Nantucket District Court.
The documents allege Robison had intent to commit rape, and committed rape, upon one victim.
“The outrageous and false accusations against Mr. Robison by a 46-year-old long-term friend of both he and his wife arise out of a late-night interaction between two consenting adults, in the privacy of the Robisons’ Nantucket home. A regrettable event for all concerned, but certainly not a crime,” said Robison’s attorney James Merberg, according to the AJC. “I look forward to clearing Mr. Robison’s good name in a court of law.”
Robison, a retired businessman, once served as chairman of the board of the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Robison founded Lanier Parking in 1989 as a Georgia Tech student and built the firm into a national and international parking management giant. The company manages lots and decks at high-profile office towers, shopping malls and arenas, and also managed parking during the 2002 and 2010 Winter Olympic Games and several PGA championship golf tournaments.
