Robinson is transferred to prison reception center

Toledo Blade

Gerald Robinson, the retired Toledo priest who was convicted last week of killing a nun, was transferred yesterday morning from the Lucas County jail to an Ohio prison reception center, authorities said.

Robinson was taken to the state’s Correctional Reception Center in Orient, southwest of Columbus.

There he will undergo multiple screenings, reviews, and assessments, including medical, mental health, and family history. The process can take four to five weeks, according to Andrea Dean, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

Until it is completed, it will not be known which prison will house Robinson, Ms. Dean said.
