The United States Attorney Kenyen Brown announces that James R. Robinson, a 35 year old resident of Mobile, was sentenced today. Mr. Robinson pled guilty on May 15, 2014, to possession of a 9mm Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol found on his person after police stopped him to investigate his suspicious reaction to their presence. At that time, Mr. Robinson had been convicted of Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance. As a convicted felon, he was prohibited from possessing firearms.
Officers of the Mobile Police Department investigated the case and presented it to the U.S. Attorney's Office for prosecution. The prosecutor assigned to the case is Assistant United States Attorney, Gina S. Vann.
