After 36 convictions, man gets long prison term
ATLANTA — An Atlanta man with 36 convictions, 22 of them felonies, now faces nearly 20 years in prison — for being a felon in possession of a handgun.
U.S. District Judge Jack T. Camp sentenced 46-year-old Larry L. Robinson on Thursday to 19 years and seven months in federal prison.
U.S. Attorney David Nahmias called Robinson the quintessential career criminal. He said Robinson has been arrested more than 60 times.
The Georgia Department of Corrections says Robinson’s prior offenses include convictions for aggravated assault, burglary, gun possession, drug possession, shoplifting, trespassing and entering an auto. He also was convicted of conspiracy in Lee County and obstruction of a law enforcement officer in DeKalb County.
