Albemarle County Police Detective K.W. Robinson is back at his old job. Robinson was accused of beating detainee Corey Faison in August, an allegation that was shored up by the release of a video of the entire incident. Robinson was formally charged in December, and suspended from the force simultaneously. In January he was sent back to work, though in a limited capacity pending the outcome of the trial. In spite of that, Chief Miller has placed Robinson back on active duty. There is no policy in place that requires that Robinson’s duties be limited until the outcome of the trial. Detective Robinson has a history of misconduct: he was fired ten years ago by Chief Miller for kicking a man in the face while arresting him, though his job was reinstated by an appeals board. WVIR had the story on their 11pm broadcast last night.
