Man convicted of damaging Clark County jail
ARKADELPHIA, Ark. (AP) - A man charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a Henderson State football player last year has been convicted of damaging video surveillance equipment at the Clark County jail.
A judge sentenced 23-year-old Andrew Robinson to 20 years in prison after a jury convicted him of impairing the operation of a vital public facility and first-degree criminal mischief.
Robinson and two others face attempted murder charges in the Dec. 5 shooting of Henderson State offensive lineman Lewis West, who was treated and released from the hospital in time to play in the Division II Cactus Bowl in January. That case has not yet gone to trial.
