Petersboro man sentenced to prison for raping woman

LOGAN — A 22-year-old Petersboro man, Riley Robins, was sentenced to prison for raping a girl during a 4th of July celebration in 2014.

Robins was ordered to serve one term of three-years-to-life on one count of attempted rape, a first-degree felony. He pleaded guilty to the amended charge after accepting a plea deal in March.

According to deputy reports, the victim had consumed a large amount of alcohol during the party and needed assistance walking. Two men at the party helped her to a room inside a home, so she could sleep it off.

Later, Robins reportedly entered the room where she was, and sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious.

She was taken to the hospital the next day and told staff there she had been raped.

Robins was later arrested and originally charged with rape and forcible sodomy, both first-degree felonies.
