Butler mom receives protective order against shooting suspect

April 17, 2018 News Extra

Raheem Robinson, 26, entered a “nonconstituted admission” to Taimuty's petition Tuesday.

A final protection from abuse order was issued against an attempted homicide suspect in Butler County Family Court on Tuesday, after the order was sought by the alleged victim of the case.

The order, sought by Kirisa Taimuty of Butler, against Raheem Robinson, 26, of Pittsburgh, will be in effect until April 17, 2021. Robinson entered a “nonconstituted admission” to Taimuty's petition Tuesday, which stated that she and her 2-year-old son were the targets of the shooting in the 300 block of North Sixth Avenue at 10:37 p.m. April 5.

A nonconstituted admission is one that agrees to the petition but not the allegations therein.

The PFA agreement evicts Robinson from Taimuty's home on Shore Street, prohibits contact and prohibits him from possessing firearms.

Butler police charged Robinson nearly a week after the alleged shooting incident, along with Mackenzie Peters, 22, after they walked into the YMCA on North Washington Street. Both were charged with felony counts of attempted homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, aggravated assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, as well as misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person and tampering with or fabricating evidence. Robinson also faces a felony charge of persons not to possess a firearm.
