Violent Sex Offender Could Rejoin Community on Friday

Posted: Updated: - A violent sexual predator could be back out on the streets unless a local judge puts a halt to it.

Stephen Robinson, 56, is scheduled to be released Friday from the State Penitentiary in Walla Walla. But the Washington state Attorney General is asking Benton County Judge Carrie Runge to find probable cause to prevent this from happening.

They say Robinson has admitted to having more than a hundred victims and has indicated he would seek out and attack other young girls if released.

"We are arguing tomorrow in court that he is a sexually violent predator, which means that he has a mental condition that makes him more likely than not to re-offend," said a spokesperson.

Robinson has a probable cause hearing scheduled for Friday morning at 8:30. At that time, Judge Runge will decide whether to make a ruling or take it under consideration.
