HART — A 22-year-old Grand Haven man faces a jail sentence after pleading guilty in 27th Circuit Court Tuesday, Feb. 23, to a felony of larceny from a person.

In exchange for Tazz Lee-Jim Robinson’s guilty plea, Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon agreed to cap Robinson’s sentence in the midpoint of the sentencing guidelines, which is a non-prison term.

One count of unarmed robbery, which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison, was dismissed when Robinson pleaded to the added count of larceny from a person, which carries a 10-year maximum penalty.

Robinson testified Tuesday that on Sept. 29, 2015, he stole a backpack, necklace, MP3 player and a skateboard from a male victim who was walking along the road in New Era. Robinson said he and three other individuals were riding in a car when they stopped the car, and he took the items from the victim.

Robinson was remanded to the Oceana County Jail to await sentencing, which is set for April 25 at 9 a.m.
