DOC: Fugitive Sex Offender Robbed School, Stole Bike

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The state corrections department says a fugitive level 3 sex offender who was arrested over the weekend was caught with burglary tools in his possession.

According to the department, 39-year-old Clarence Robinson also had a bicycle that they believe was likely stolen from a schoolyard. He was arrested Sunday morning and taken to Hennepin County Jail.

Robinson was previously convicted of sexual assault and multiple robberies.

He was on intensive supervised release for a 1997 first-degree burglary conviction in which he also sexually assaulted a woman. Under current sentencing guidelines, offenders can be released into the community after serving two-thirds of their sentence in prison.

He was released from prison on Oct. 27 and walked away from a halfway house on Nov. 1. The corrections department says Robinson had cut off his GPS-monitored ankle bracelet.

Robinson’s sentence can’t be extended beyond July 2014, but Hennepin County prosecutors will consider whether to press additional charges for the burglary of Anwatin Middle School.

      No those are botox injection scars! His main problem is because of the myth about black men and their size!.He claimed in his last trial that it was because of the BIG lie,he has been forced to make love in the dark with total strangers!He has scars in other places to prove how he has tried to deal with such a horendous physical limitation as he has.His nickname is “Shorty”‘! Poor devil! Shoulda been born Irish!
