Dpree Shareef Robinson sentenced to 450 months for murder of 9-year-old jumping on trampoline
Dpree Shareef Robinson was sentenced today to 450 months in prison for the intentional shooting death of Trinity Ottoson-Smith, a 9-year-old who had been jumping on a trampoline with friends. Hennepin County Attorney Mary Moriarty released the following statement:
“No family should be forced to endure all that Trinity’s family has these past two years. After losing Trinity in a devastating, senseless act of gun violence, they have faced multiple delays getting legal closure on the criminal case against the person responsible for this tragedy. I hope today’s sentencing helps them move forward focused on the positive memories they have of her too-short life.
"Trinity’s murder was no accident. Mr. Robinson was intent on killing that sunny, spring day and that is what he did. We cannot allow the killing to continue, we all must do more to end the violence. Our office will continue to prioritize the prosecution of violent crime but simply waiting for more victims and prosecuting criminal cases is not enough. We are also committed to working with the community and at all levels to help get guns off the street and protect those not yet harmed."
