Judge Jean C. Logue of Circuit Court Division II recently sentenced a man to eight years in prison on an amended charge of second-degree assault.
James Robinson, 60, Kristen Drive, Richmond, also was ordered to 150 days for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol/drugs/etc., according to court paperwork. His license was suspended for 12 months.
According to a previous Register article, Robinson was charged with first-degree assault. Police said he was driving under the influence when he struck a woman outside a Main Street bar and grill in Richmond around midnight Dec. 17. The victim suffered a broken arm, broken leg and a head injury, according to a Richmond Police Department press release.
Robinson's arrest citation states he admitted to consuming two drinks and a beer before leaving his home that night. Originally, he was charged with first-degree wanton endangerment in the incident.
As an alternative sentence, Robinson will serve five years of probation, with credit for 42 days already served, the court paperwork states.
