The Fifth District Court of Appeals recently affirmed a 30-month sentence for a man convicted of third-degree robbery.

Casey Robinson appealed to the three-judge appellate panel after receiving a “near-maximum” sentence.

He argued that the court violated his rights by ordering more than the minimum sentence because he was a first-time felony offender.

The facts of the case show Robinson was indicted on charges of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification, theft and felonious assault.
