Springhill man found guilty of kidnapping pastor sentenced 25 years

BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A Springhill man was sentenced to 25 years in prison with no benefit following the kidnapping of a pastor last year.

Patrick Robinson, 33, was found guilty in November of the kidnapping of Pastor C.R. Collier at knifepoint following a domestic dispute at his ex-girlfriend's home, according to an email from Bossier Parish District Attorney Schuyler Marvin's office.

Robinson's criminal history began in 2001, and the Collier kidnapping was his fourth offense.

Two of the other convictions were sex offenses.

"Thanks to the hard work of the Webster Parish Sheriff Department Deputies who worked this case, justice was done and a dangerous felon has been taken off the streets for a long time," said Hugo Holland, Assistant District Attorney who prosecuted the case, in an email.
