Woman Faces 38 Charges

By Andrew Gorosko

Police have charged a local woman with 38 various criminal offenses, serving nine rearrest warrants against her in connection with past incidents.

Police Sergeant Christopher Vanghele said this week that police served the rearrest warrants against Jennifer Robson, 32, of 6 High Bridge Road, Newtown, while Robson was at a residence in Southbury on December 27.

Because Robson had not shown up in court for appearances on her various pending criminal cases, police served the warrants against her, rearresting her, and holding her on $90,500 bail for arraignment on December 29 in Danbury Superior Court.

Following that arraignment, Robson was being held on December 30 on the pending charges on $85,000 bail at York Correctional Institution in Niantic, according to the state Department of Correction.

The charges listed in the nine rearrest warrants stem from criminal cases originating in Newtown, Newington, Watertown, Southbury, and Danbury. Five of the cases originated in Newtown.

The charges in the Newtown cases include various counts of first-degree failure to appear in court, fifth-degree larceny, second-degree forgery, interfering with police, third-degree larceny, credit card theft, improper use of automotive documents, and failure to carry a driver’s license.

The charges stemming from the cases originating in the other towns include second-degree failure to appear in court, sixth-degree larceny, third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, illegal use of a credit card, and failure to carry automotive documents.

Sgt Vangehle explained that the many rearrest warrants stem from Robson’s failure to make scheduled appearances in court on the various criminal cases.

During the coming month, Robson has court appearances scheduled for four different courts, based on the jurisdictions within which the crimes were allegedly committed.

Robson’s motive for committing the various crimes was to obtain money, the sergeant said.
