Local Felon Gets 164 Years in Prison

A life long loser needs to circle the year 2181 on his prison cell calendar, because that's how long he'll be behind bars for shooting a Sheriff's deputy to protect his drug stash, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

Sherman Robinson, 38, was sentenced to 65 years for shooting Deputy Joseph Canales, who was critically wounded while working as part of a K-9 team that was staking out a drug house operated by Robinson.

Since Robinson is already serving a 99 year sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm, that means 164 years in prison, pushing his release date to 2181.  Realistically, it is a life sentence.

Robinson is no stranger to the slammer...he is a multiple time loser who has been in and out of prison his entire life.

Deputy Canales required multiple surgeries but eventually recovered from his wounds.

Ironically, the Deputy's father, SAPD Officer Tony Canales, was shot and killed in the line of duty back in 1972.
