Kentucky Man Pleads Guilty to sexual assault along the canal

Posted by wlpo on June 24, 2016

A Kentucky man has pled guilty to sexually assaulting a 17-year old along the I & M Canal in Ottawa.

Sixty-three-year-old James Robinson was sentenced Friday by Judge H. Chris Ryan to 17 years in prison for the assault, which took place almost 8 years ago. When he found out he was wanted for the assault, Robinson ran to Kentucky. He had been in prison in that state for separate crimes until last December, when he was brought up to Ottawa on these charges.

Because of the severity of his crime, Robinson will have to serve at least 80% of that time before the state will consider letting him out early.
