Halfway house next stop after violations



The Dorchester hooker who got a lenient sentence in exchange for keeping secret the name of the Boston-area bigwig she shook down for $280,000 will likely be thrown in the slammer if she violates her probation again.

Michelle Robinson, 29, who wore a light gray pantsuit and a pink button-down shirt yesterday, was ordered to finish her six-month sentence of house arrest in a halfway house after admitting to lying to her probation officer and skirting the rules of her release.

“I wanna say I’m sorry,” a soft spoken Robinson said in U.S. District Court after admitting she left her house under false pretenses and lied to her probation officer.

U.S. District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf let Robinson sweat for several minutes before agreeing to a joint recommendation that she go to a halfway house, rather than jail.

“Perhaps I should just lock her up. I’m not convinced that Ms. Robinson is with the program,” he said.

Instead, he decided to give her a chance to set her life on “a better path,” but cautioned that another foul-up could mean jail time.

He also acknowledged that she obeyed terms of her release by sticking with mental health counseling to combat years of abuse and bad decisions.

Robinson was under house arrest after pleading guilty in February to extorting a big-shot Boston-area businessman. She agreed to keep secret his name for three years as part of a sentence that allowed her to stay out of jail.

3. While it's good to hear that she wore a light gray pantsuit and a pink button-down shirt
I think the reporter is negligent in not telling us what kind of shoes she was wearing and how she did her hair.
