The Covington News - - Crime & courts -

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.
