Detroit man pleads guilty in robbery of Ann Arbor medical marijuana clinic

By Lee Higgins

One of three men accused in a September armed robbery at a medical marijuana clinic in downtown Ann Arbor has pleaded guilty to various charges in the case.

Terrence Robinson, 34, of Detroit, pleaded guilty Thursday in Washtenaw County Court to armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, unlawful imprisonment and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

He also pleaded no contest to resisting and obstructing police officers, Washtenaw County Chief Deputy Assistant Prosecutor Steve Hiller said.

Police said Robinson and two other men robbed the Liberty Clinic on South Main Street at gunpoint at 8 p.m. Sept. 30, using duct tape to bind people inside as they stole cash, marijuana and at least one cell phone. Officers responded and took the men into custody after a struggle, police said. The clinic has since closed.

The other two men, 18-year-old Markus Bailey of Detroit and 32-year-old Andre White of Royal Oak, are awaiting trial on similar charges.

Robinson is scheduled to be sentenced March 17.

@RJA, the taxes you and everyone else pays for the state, goes into paying for prisoners being housed in a State Prison. Why does that matter? Do you not feel people its a good use of your tax dollars to keep guys like this away from you or your family. I guess I dont see why money is even a issue.

@now...I understand State Prison, which county is going to pay in taxes, Washtenaw or Wayne. I guess now, perhaps the whole state. @Sally, I agree off the streets forever.

Let's get these thugs off the street permanently.

Looks friendly.

@rja, It's called a State Prison.


Sat, Feb 12, 2011 : 3:52 a.m.

Two of these men are from Detroit, and one from Royal Oak. Where are they going to spend their time after they are sentenced?

The last place anybody should find themselves is Duct-taped anywhere near this thing. Hear me?
