GENESEO — An argument turned assault at the Livingston County Jail resulted in the arrest of an inmate.
On Aug. 19, deputies at the jail responded to a report of an inmate-versus-inmate assault in the jail’s dorm area. Allegedly, a verbal dispute led to Akeem L. Robinson, 29, attacking another inmate, causing serious injury. Deputies provided medical care to the victim, and Dep. Michael Williams arrested Robinson on felony assault charges.
Robinson was being held in the jail on previous drug charges. The condition of the injured inmate was not released.
Robinson was moved to central booking at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony charge and recommended Robinson should be held without the possibility of bail.
Robinson was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part at the Livingston County Jail before Town of York Justice Thomas Porter. The judge remanded Robinson to the custody of the sheriff without bail. Robinson will be held for further court proceedings on the matter.
