Sex Offender Paroled
A man convicted of first degree sex offense and assault with intent to kill in Columbus County has been paroled.
Johnny Robinson, 67, was released March 13, according to the state Parole commission. He was sentenced to life plus 26 years in Columbus County Superior Court in 1992 for first degree sex offense and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury.
The Parole Commission said in a press release that Robinson had successfully completed the Mutual Agreement Parole Program (MAPP).
North Carolina’s Structured Sentencing Law eliminates parole for crimes and convictions after 1994.
Defendants convicted under the old laws must still be considered for parole.
Robinson was convicted in 1992 for the 1991 assault.
It is unclear as to whether Robinson will have to register as a sex offender.
