Harlem Sex-Offender Ex-con Gets 21 years

The sex-offender ex-con who savagely attacked two women in Harlem last year, and then smiled about it in court, brazenly claimed he’s not a “monster” Wednesday — as a judge sentenced him to 21 years in prison for the ghoulish attacks.

Keon Robinson, 28, admitted to beating a 31-year-old German tourist senseless and molesting her while she was unconscious on May 4, 2017, and also beating and robbing a woman on April 24 that year.

Robinson was caught laughing about his crimes in court last year.
