Tommy Robinson Sentenced to Five Days in Jail

JULY 21, 2006 - Posted at 8:04 a.m. CDT

 

BRINKLEY, AR - Former Arkansas Congressman Tommy Robinson and a son, Greg Robinson, were sentenced yesterday to five days in jail.  The father and son pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges stemming from an altercation with one of the creditors who forced Tommy Robinson into involuntary bankruptcy.

The two Robinsons were allowed to go free on $1,300 bond while they appeal the sentences, which also include $600 in fines levied by District Judge J.W. Green.

The Robinsons were accused of attacking 58-year-old Bill Thompson of Cabot at Gene's Barbeque and Family Restaurant on July 11.

Tommy Robinson, who represented the 2nd District in central Arkansas when he was in Congress, was charged with second degree assault and disorderly conduct.  Greg Robinson was charged with third degree batter and disorderly conduct.
