Angela Nicole Robinson Sentenced in U.S. District Cour

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, June 01, 2012

The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on June 1, 2012, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, ANGELA NICOLE ROBINSON, a 27-year-old resident of Billings, appeared for sentencing. ROBINSON was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 22 months
  • Special Assessment: $700
  • Supervised Release: 3 years

REYNA was sentenced in connection with her guilty plea to possession of a stolen firearm, making a false statement, and distribution of Schedule II narcotics.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marcia K. Hurd, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

On March 8, 2011, ROBINSON and Amillio Reyna sold an undercover Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agent a stolen HWM model Windicator, .357 caliber revolver at an undercover location in Billings. The gun was reported stolen in Billings on February 3, 2011. The victim reported that the gun was missing from her backpack after she had visited the residence that ROBINSON and Reyna lived in at the time. ROBINSON knew or had reasonable cause to know that the firearm was stolen.

On May 9, 2011, ROBINSON made a straw purchase of a Smith and Wesson, model M&P 340 Centennial, .357 caliber revolver for an undercover agent. She purchased the firearm for the undercover agent for $200. The agent drove her to a licensed firearms business in Billings where she made the purchase where she then delivered the gun to the agent waiting outside in the car. She made a knowingly false statement on the requisite forms, indicating that the purchase was for herself.

On February 17, 2011, ROBINSON and Reyna sold an undercover agent 15 Adderall pills, a Schedule II controlled substance, for $150. The prescription drugs belonged to ROBINSON's minor child.

On February 25, 2011, ROBINSON sold an undercover agent 10 Adderall pills, a Schedule II controlled substance, for $100.

On April 13, 2011, ROBINSON and Reyna sold an undercover agent 10 Adderall pills, a Schedule II controlled substance, for $100.

On April 28, 2011, ROBINSON sold an undercover agent 5 Morphine Sulfate pills, a Schedule II controlled substance, for $150.

On August 25, 2011, ROBINSON and Reyna sold an undercover agent 4 Morphine Sulfate pills, a Schedule II controlled substance, for $360.

ROBINSON knew that she was selling controlled substances.

Reyna pled guilty to federal charges and is awaiting sentencing.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the "truth in sentencing" guidelines mandate that ROBINSON will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, ROBINSON does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for "good behavior." However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
