The Grand Jury returned seven True Bill of Indictments after meeting on Jan. 6. Robinson was indicted on statutory rape, kidnapping, indecent liberties with a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and three counts as a Habitual Felon.

Northampton County Sheriff Jack Smith said Robinson was arrested at his residence without incident, with the assistance of Investigator Josh Clark of the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office.

Robinson was given a $175,000 bond and a court date of Feb. 24.

The crimes for which Robinson stands charged in Northampton County took place in May of 2013. The incidents were sent back to the Sheriff’s Office for re-investigation by the 6B District Attorney’s Office to determine were the crimes took place.

Robinson is no stranger to law enforcement. His criminal record extends as far back as 2006 and includes charges of trespassing, injury to real property, felony breaking and entering, larceny and DWI.
