Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott is proud to announce that Deputy Kara Robinson received the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy Courage Award today, Friday, August 20.

On June 24, 2002, Kara was abducted from the front yard of a friend's home in West Columbia. She was transported to an apartment off Broad River Road in a plastic container. For eighteen hours, Kara was assaulted and kept in bondage.
Kara fled the apartment and sought the help of a male bystander who drove her to the Richland County Sheriff's Department Region Four Headquarters. Kara gave investigators a very detailed account of what she experienced and what the suspect looked like.
After enduring an ordeal such as this, many may not find the courage to go on, but Kara did. She not only found the strength to survive, she found the strength to live. Kara received a four year degree from the University of South Carolina, which was paid for by reward money she received from the State of Virginia after she identified Evonitz as the murderer in three unsolved homicides. Kara decided at that time that she wanted to help others, so she contacted Sheriff Lott about working part-time at the Richland County Sheriff's Department. Once she completed her degree, she went back to Sheriff Lott and told him she wanted to help kids. He placed her in the Youth Arbitration Unit, and now she is has become a DARE instructor for Richland School District Two with the School Resource Officer Program.
Sheriff Lott adds that Deputy Kara Robinson is an individual of true character.
