A minister and music teacher who molested three boys he met through church mentoring programs learned his fate Tuesday.
Jimmie Robinson Jr., 48, was sentenced to more than 17 years in prison. He pleaded guilty in April to three counts of lewd acts on children. He also admitted having substantial sexual contact with the victims and committing prior felonies. In a plea agreement, Robinson admitted molesting one boy from late 1999 to 2002, molesting a second boy in 2005 and a third boy last year.
Robinson was associated with five churches in San Diego and Riverside counties. The prosecutor said DNA connected him to the crimes.
