Kenneth Robbins pleaded guilty to the first count, and Ariel Robbins pleaded “no contest.”

As part of the plea agreement, Kenneth Robbins’ jail time will be capped at four and a half months, which is the midpoint of the 0-9 month sentencing guidelines in his case, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon. Ariel Robbins’ jail time will be capped at 30 days. The couple will also be ordered to pay $241 in restitution.
