Hennepin County fugitive caught in Minneapolis 16 Nov 11

A level 3 sex offender who disappeared from a halfway house two weeks ago is back in custody.

Clarence Robinson, 39, was taken into custody early Sunday morning when Minneapolis police responded to a break-in at Anwatin Middle School.

Robinson was released from the Stillwater state prison on Oct. 27 after completing his required sentence for a 1997 burglary and sexual assault conviction. He was placed on Intensive Supervised Release but walked away from a Minneapolis halfway house on Nov. 1 after cutting of a GPS-monitored ankle bracelet.

Robinson also escaped from custody in Carver County 14 years ago while he was being held on an assault charge.

Hennepin County prosecutors will now decide if they will formally charge Robinson with the burglary of the Anwatin Middle School. If he is convicted, he may have to serve additional prison time.
