Minnesota Man Sentenced to Four Years for Setting Fire to Police Station


Dylan Shakespeare Robinson, a 23-year-old Minnesota man, was sentenced to four years in prison after helping set fire to a Minneapolis police station following George Floyd’s death, according to prosecutors.

In addition to his sentence, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Minnesota stated Robinson was ordered to pay $12 million in restitution for damage to Minneapolis’ third police precinct that occurred during a riot on May 28, 2020.

“Mr. Robinson chose to depart from lawful protest and instead engaged in violence and destruction,” said Acting US Attorney Anders Folk. “The arson at the Minneapolis Police Department’s Third Precinct put lives at risk and contributed to widespread lawlessness in Minneapolis.”
