Teenager Sentenced to Prison Time in Armed Robbery Case
A 16 year-old charged as an adult has been sentenced to prison time in an armed robbery case, confirmed Attorney General Jim Hood today. Reginald Robinson, 16, of Jackson entered a guilty plea Thursday in HInds Circuit Court before the Honorble Judge William Gowan,. The indictment charged Robinson as an adult for two counts of armed robbery and one count of receiving stolen property.
The case was originally handled by the Hinds County District Attorney’s Office which removed themselves citing conflict of interest. The Attorney General’s Office was appointed by Judge Gowan to handle the case. Prosecution was handled by Special Assistant Attorney General Marvin Sanders.
