Portage County prosecutors

charged a fourth man connected to the on-campus robbery that took place Nov. 22, 2009.

William M. Henderson IV, of Highland Hills, was charged at the Portage County Common

Pleas Court with robbery, a second-degree felony, and receiving stolen property, a fifth-degree felony.

Henderson was 17 years old and not a student at Kent State when the robbery

occurred. According to the Record Courier, Portage County Prosecutor Victor Vigluicci petitioned to have the case binded over from the juvenile court to the common pleas court in order to try Henderson as an adult.

Three others have already been charged in the robbery that took place near the Art Building early on Nov. 22. The four men allegedly

stole a FlashCard from a student

and then used it at Rosie’s Café. Two victims were treated for minor injuries.

Jose Lino, of Akron, pleaded guilty to robbery last week at the Portage County Common Pleas Court. He will face two to eight years of prison at sentencing

March 15. The other charge of receiving stolen property on him was dismissed.

Daejshon Norton, of Erie, Pa., and Mykel Benson, of Cleveland, were both charged with robbery and receiving stolen property. Both trials are set for May 25 in the courtroom

of Judge Laurie Pittman.
