Cortland man sent to prison for domestic battery

SYCAMORE – A 27-year-old Cortland man was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday for domestic battery as part of a negotiated plea agreement.

Brian Robinson, of the 200 block of McMillan Court, was serving 30 months of probation for aggravated battery of a pregnant person when he was charged with the more recent domestic battery incidents, court records show. He pleaded guilty to the aggravated battery in August 2012 and also was ordered to undergo anger management treatment.

Robinson pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of domestic battery in exchange for prosecutors dropping all other pending charges. He also admitted to violating his probation.

The newer charges date back to last year. On April 20, Robinson was accused of grabbing the same victim’s throat and pushing her backward, court records show. On July 13, Cortland police said Robinson smashed the same victim’s head against a kitchen cabinet and dragged her through a hallway while she was unconscious, court records show.

Robinson will receive credit for the 222 days – or more than 7 months – he has already served in jail. When he finishes his prison term, he will serve four years of parole.
