Man sentenced to 19 years for child molestation charges

PROVIDENCE, R.I (WLNE) – A Central falls man has been sentenced to 19 years at the ACI after pleading to molesting an 11-year-old-girl from 2017-2018.

According to the R.I Attorney General’s office, 58-year-old Amos Robinson pleaded no contest to one count of first-degree child molestation before a Superior court justice.

He was sentenced to 40 years at the ACI, with 19 to serve and the balance suspended with probation.

Additionally, Robison was ordered by the court to register as a sex offender, complete sec offender counseling, and is subject to supervision.

A no-contact order was issued between him and the victim.

Attorney General Neronha said, “children should be able to grow up safely and free from the dangers posed by child predators like the defendant here.”

“All of us can play a role in keeping children safe, including by recognizing that many acts of molestation occur at the hands of people known to the child victim.  I am grateful for the victim’s courage, and hope that the well-deserved lengthy sentence imposed on this defendant will bring her some sense of justice and perhaps some small measure of comfort.”
