WOONSOCKET — A homegrown kingpin of the crack cocaine trade drew 22 years of federal prison time when he was sentenced on drug-trafficking and conspiracy charges in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.
Robert O. Robinson, 30, was the leader and organizer of a drug-distribution network he ran out of Talu’s Cafe on Willow Street, federal prosecutors said.
