Minimal Sentence for Felony Strangulation Conviction
In September Judge Gary Randall convicted James ROBINSON of Felony Strangulation.
Judge Randall sentenced Robinson to 1 year and 8 months to 3 years in prison.
Here is where it get’s “interesting” (translation: maddening).
In the State of Nebraska, Strangulation is a Felony.
The first offense is a class 4 Felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
The second offense is a class 3 Felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
I hope you are sitting down folks….
This was Robinson’s SECOND conviction!
In early 2011 Robinson was sentenced to a minimum of 1 year and 8 months to a maximum of 2 years for Felony Strangulation.
Based on “Good Time” and other sentencing laws he was released less than 6 months after his sentence began.
Flash forward back to today’s sentence in which Robinson was facing up to 20 years in the pokey.
Robinson is set to be released in 9 months!
