    Repeat offender to serve nearly three years in prison for Leesburg theft

    Leesburg, outlets
    Francis Edward Robinson Jr


    A D.C. man was sentenced to two years and 11 months in prison Monday in Loudoun County Circuit Court after he and a co-defendant took more than $1,000 worth of clothing from a Leesburg outlet mall store.

    Judge Burke F. McCahill handed down the sentence to Francis Edward Robinson Jr, 48, on one count of grand larceny. Robinson pleaded guilty to the charge on March 22.

    On Oct. 20 Robinson and a co-defendant went into the Banana Republic store at the Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets. The two walked through the store selecting various clothing and placing them inside a shopping bag. Robinson and his accomplice then left the store without paying. They were subsequently stopped by law enforcement and all of the stolen items were found inside their vehicle, according to Heather Williamson, spokesperson for the Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney's Office.

    Williamson said Robinson has a lengthy criminal record dating back 29 years. His record includes numerous drug charges and 10 prior convictions for larceny spanning across Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

    In addition to the two years and 11 months, McCahill further ordered that Robinson remain off the Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets property and handed down an additional four years and one month suspended time in prison conditioned upon his good behavior and his successful completion of three years of supervised probation upon his release from prison.

    Robinson’s co-defendant, Michael McRae, pleaded guilty to grand larceny on Feb. 22, 2013, and is awaiting a sentencing hearing on June 24 in Loudoun County Circuit Court.
