A Frankfort man faces seven years in prison after pleading guilty to trafficking in cocaine on two different occasions.
Fifty-nine-year-old Rollie Robinson was arrested in August 2009 along with 21-year-old Allyssa Perez. Both lived on Owenton Avenue where police found cocaine, scales, marijuana,drug paraphernalia and money, police said after the arrest.
Robinson pleaded guilty to two counts of trafficking in less than four grams of cocaine – each on separate cases – possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and being a persistent felony offender.
Perez was previously sentenced and is on court supervision.
Robinson’s formal sentencing will be May 18 because he has a medical condition that requires several medical appointments in coming weeks.
He could face 10 years on each charge to run concurrently if he fails to cooperate with the plea agreement, Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd said.
Also in Franklin Circuit Court Friday, Richard Lancaster, 22, pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, menacing, third-degree criminal mischief and leaving the scene of an accident.
Lancaster, initially charged with attempted murder, rammed a sheriff deputy’s cruiser when the officer responded to a domestic disturbance call Feb. 27, according to a report.
He was released to the care of his mother because of a condition he has that authorities said they weren’t suited to address. The family, Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland, public defender Kristin Gonzalez and Shepherd discussed the matter privately.
Gonzalez noted that Lancaster is bi-polar and requires treatment.
