Ex-cop convicted on 1 of 4 counts in federal drugs trial

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - A jury Friday convicted a former Little Rock police officer on one of four counts in a federal drug trial.

Randall Tremayn Robinson and his half-brother, Mark Anthony Jones, reportedly escorted what they thought was a shipment of marijuana across the city. It was a federal case because the shipment originated in California.

Jones pleaded guilty in June as part of a plea agreement.

Jones was fired and Robinson resigned shortly after the federal complaint was filed against them in May 2012.

KATV's Roger Susanin is at the courthouse. Stay with and Channel 7 News throughout the day for updates as they become available.
