DAN ROBIN JR.

The president of the St. Bernard Bar Association, Dan Robin Jr., was arrested during Washington D.C.’s Mardi Gras on Jan. 28th for simple assault.

Records indicate the incident took place on Jan. 28, 2022 around 6:30pm at a home on 3rd St. NE in Washington D.C. A search of records shows the home where the alleged incident happened is owned by Robin.

Documents show Robin and a woman, whose identity Unfiltered with Kiran is choosing not to release, got into an argument that led up to Robin allegedly becoming “enraged and began to assault her.” A belt buckle and Robin’s hands are what the report indicated were used during the alleged assault.

The report went on to read that the victim refused medical assistance despite her injuries and then became uncooperative.

Jan. 27-29th was the annual Mystick Krewe of Louisianians held in Washington D.C. 

CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO GOV. JOHN BEL EDWARDS

A search of Robin shows he’s a lawyer and has been partner at Robin & Associates since 2014.

A search of campaign contributions shows between Robin, his father and their businesses, they have donated more than $60,000 to both of Governor John Bel Edwards’ gubernatorial campaigns. 

Unfiltered with Kiran reached out to Robin for a response on the story. He said, “No comment” before hanging up.

Unfiltered with Kiran also reached out to Governor Edwards’ press office asking three different times if the governor had any response to Robin’s arrest. They never did answer that particular question.

A search of records from Washington D.C. reveals that the case was ‘no papered’ meaning there is not much of a paper trail. Robin was held at central cell block in Washington D.C. and released from there without moving to a precinct.
