Child sex offender from Idaho arrested in Gleason

Walter Larue Robinson III

Story by Shannon Taylor Senior Investigative Reporter

A child sex offender from Idaho, 46-year-old Walter Larue Robinson III, was arrested in Gleason on Dec. 14 at 1:20 p.m. after officers from Gleason Police Department and Weakley County Sheriff’s Department were informed that he had been staying at a residence in Gleason.

Robinson was charged in January 2009 for sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16.

Gleason Police Chief Brian Legions, Gleason Officer Kyle Watkins and WCSD Investigator Kerry Workman were informed of Robinson’s location, who failed to register as a sex offender in the jurisdiction.

Robinson stated that he had been staying at the address for some time and that he was unaware that he had to register upon moving.

Workman confirmed that he had been staying at the residence since Oct. 31 of this year when he turned the electricity on in his name.

Robinson was placed under arrest for charges of violation of sex offender registration law and violation of sex offender live/work restrictions due to living near to a daycare.

DISCLOSER: All information obtained came from the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department affidavit provided by Investigator Kerry Workman.

    Thank God someone had the good sense to report him. Thank you for publishing this information with his picture. Parents need to know about a potential threat to their children.

      Excuse me, I’m sorry do you even know him?

    People are so quick to judge others when they know nothing of the actual circumstances of the case. Y’all put your faith in a flawed system to start with and call it safety. It could be your husband or son or nephew one day that is wrongly accused of something and still having to suffer the consequences of it 13 years later. You won’t feel so safe then.

      Who are you? You don’t even post your name… why? Are you his side woman? The one I saw sitting next to my nephew on the porch after we had him arrested? You know nothing… you only know what you’ve heard. We have lived it for 18 years along side my sister her kids. Zip your trash lips about things you don’t know or understand.

        I don’t even know why you’re talking because you only know what you’ve heard. You were never there for any of it. You just know what people tell you. So actually you don’t understand

    We’ve known Walter Robinson for too long! They call Rudy in Tennessee. He’s known for a lot more than being a pedophile back where we live. Physically and mentally abusive not to mention what he did to my 14 year old niece. He’s known for beating his wife in the head to the point she shakes permanently. He’s a monster and needs to stay behind those bars! Tennessee, I hope you keep him because we do not want him back! Good riddance!

  5. Judge Dread on December 17, 2022 at 1:22 pm

    He is guilty and has been judged.

    My family has known Walter Robinson too long! In Tennessee he’s known as Rudy. He’s a monster, he raped my niece when she was 14. He’s physically and mentally abusive to his wife now ex wife. He’s hit her so many times in the head she shakes permanently. He deserves everything he gets. Do not feel bad for this man ever! I do on the other hand feel bad for his kids for what they’ve seen him do to their mom. Tennessee, I hope you keep him because he is not wanted back EVER!

    Interesting how the new girlfriend who has children of her own gets on here to defend a child rapist. Why was she allowed to have a sex offender staying in the Bradford projects with her?

      Sorry. I’m late to the party obviously. I had no idea you were leaving comments for me. My apologies. However, when you accuse me of defending a child rapist as you called it……you mean your husband that you were married to 15 years? And this happened when? 13 years ago? And that is the father of your two children? So, you saw it fit to have children with this alleged child rapist and have the nerve to call me out in a very public way because I have children? What I find extremely disturbing is the fact that you don’t mind at all using something against a person. Now. When it convenient for you. Why? Because you’re mad? I don’t understand your logic but if it makes you feel better to bad mouth me then go right ahead. You won’t be the first nor the last. And what you have to say has no actual effect on who I really am as a person. Or a mother. Have a blessed rest of your life. I wish you nothing but peace and happiness in abundance.
