On October 3, 2019, after a four-week trial, a Camden County jury found Dante Robinson, 24, of Clayton, New Jersey, guilty of Armed Robbery. The jury also found Robinson guilty of Conspiracy to Commit Robbery, Burglary, Theft, Aggravated Assault by Pointing a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful purpose, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child.
At trial, Special Deputy Attorney General Acting Assistant Prosecutor Michael Mastrangelo presented evidence and witness testimony that proved Dante Robinson, along with four other individuals, wore face masks and unlawfully entered a home in the Sicklerville section of Gloucester Township. Dante Robinson and the other individuals were armed with an assault-rifle-styled paintball gun for the purpose of committing a home invasion robbery on May 21, 2017. Robinson was charged the following day.
At the time of the robbery, two women, a man, and a young child were inside of the home.
An Armed Robbery count alone carries a potential minimum sentence of ten years to a maximum of 20 years, 85% to be served without parole, in New Jersey State Prison.
Dante Robinson is scheduled for sentencing on November 15, 2019 before the Honorable Judge Edward J. McBride.
Released Friday, October 4, 2019.
