Cocaine Dealer With Ties To Crime Organization Sentenced

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Federal authorities say a member of a Kansas City criminal organization was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Thirty-six-year-old Demond Robins was sentenced Wednesday for conspiracy to distribute cocaine and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He pleaded guilty in March to providing cocaine to a co-conspirator, who distributed the drugs and brought the money to Robins. Robins’ girlfriend helped launder the drug proceeds.

His co-conspirator and his girlfriend have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

Robins and his cousins, James Willis and Dale Willis, and some associates, were the focus of a joint investigation by Kansas City police and federal agents, which led to the charges against Robins. His cousins were convicted of killing a man outside an Overland Park, Kansas, bar in 2016.
