Where is Kenneth Robinson Now?

March 21, 2024

Seven months after he grabbed national attention by claiming an abandoned suburban homestead in Flower Mound for $16, Kenneth Robinson is on his way out of the house. At a hearing today, a Flower Mound judge ruled that Robinson has no right to live there and that Bank of America, which owns the foreclosed property, can evict him. Robinson, an ex-Marine, had cited a law dating back to the 1800s on adverse possession in arguing his case.

Unlike many of the squatters who have taken up residence in vacant houses around North Texas, Robinson seems to truly understand the legal process involved. Last week he gave a guest lecture to property law students at SMU's Dedman School of Law. "It's not a process that anyone should go through for financial gain without really understanding what they are doing," Robinson said.

A Charleston criminal defense attorney says he is not surprised to hear that the state's appeal of Robinson's murder conviction was overturned. The lawyer says the judge erred by letting the jury hear about his client's possible gang connections at trial. The court should have considered gang affiliation as irrelevant evidence.

Robinson was born in Winchester, Virginia and graduated from Handley High School. He went on to earn a B.S. in horticulture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Blacksburg, and served as an infantryman with the United States Army until his honorable discharge in 1945. He has worked as a salesman and a self-employed gardener. He is also a member of the Quaker Church.
