A Frankfort man has been sentenced to seven years for selling cocaine in Franklin County.
Rollie Robinson, 59, was arrested after Frankfort police searched a house on the 400 block of Owenton Avenue in August of 2011, according to court records.
During the search, police found cocaine, scales, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and money. He was charged with cocaine trafficking and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to court records.
Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd sentenced Robinson – in accordance with Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland’s recommendation – to five years for trafficking in cocaine, 90 days for possession of marijuana and one year for possession of drug paraphernalia.
In a second case, Robinson was sentenced to five years for trafficking in cocaine October 2011. However, the five-year sentence was increased to seven because Robinson was also charged with being a persistent felon. The charges will run concurrently for a total of seven years.
Shepherd said he will wait until June 1 to file the sentence after Robinson takes a furlough day for a medical procedure at University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center on May 31.
