According to Stewart, Robinson, 37, was wanted for two violations of the Sex Offender Registration Notification Act (SORNA) – absconding and a misdemeanor charge of failure to pay required registration fees.

“We have not been able to locate him for about the last six months,” Stewart said during the search. “We have also contacted the U.S. Marshals for assistance.”

Robinson is a black male who is 5-foot-8, weighing around 180 pounds. He sports a tattoo of “Gina” on his left hand and has brown eyes and black hair.

“His last known address was in Rutledge on Nobles Road,” Stewart said.

Before his return Friday, Robinson’s last known location was 34 Nobles Road in Rutledge. It is unknown whether he traveled in a vehicle or on foot.

On April 10, 2006, Robinson was convicted for two sex crimes: indecent exposure and first-degree sexual abuse of an eleven-year-old female. He served time for those crimes and was released in 2012.

According to Stewart, a person commits the crime of indecent exposure if with intent to arouse or gratify sexual desire of himself or herself, or of an person other than his or her spouse, he or she exposes his or her genitals under circumstances in which he or she knows his or her conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm in any public place.

Stewart said convicted sex offenders are required to meet SORNA guidelines after release from time served.

“They have to register quarterly, and we go out and do home visits at random periods to check their [SORNA] compliance and make sure they are in good standing,” Stewart said. “If they are not, then we open an investigation. Then we get warrants issued and pick them up.”

Anyone with information regarding Robinson’s whereabouts should contact the Crenshaw County Sheriff’s Office at (334) 335-4850 or (334) 335-4485.
