In Douglas County Robin prosecuted a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony cases, and had numerous jury trials on charges ranging from traffic offenses to rape and kidnapping.
From there Robin moved to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office, serving as an Assistant Attorney General assigned to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. His duties included crimes on a state-wide level, while also serving as the legal advisor for the KBI.
