United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Reginald Martez Robinson, 35, of Saraland, was sentenced on December 1, 2015, for his role in several home invasions and kidnappings during 2011. Robinson was indicted on the federal charges in 2014, and he entered a guilty plea to two of the charges, conspiracy to use a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence and kidnapping, in October of last year.
United States District Court Judge William H. Steele imposed a sentence of 184 months on each count, and ordered that they run concurrently. He also ordered that Robinson will commence a five-year term of supervised release when he is discharged from incarceration. As conditions of his supervision, Robinson will be subject to testing and treatment for drug abuse. Judge Steele also ordered that Robinson pay $200 in special mandatory assessments, but no fine was imposed.
The case was investigated by the Mobile Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney’s Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
