Ex-cop convicted on 1 of 4 counts in federal drugs trial

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - A jury Friday convicted a former Little Rock police officer on one of four counts in a federal drug trial.

Randall Tremayn Robinson and his half-brother, Mark Anthony Jones, reportedly escorted what they thought was a shipment of marijuana across the city. It was a federal case because the shipment originated in California.

Jones pleaded guilty in June as part of a plea agreement.

Jones was fired and Robinson resigned shortly after the federal complaint was filed against them in May 2012.
