Cleveland man charged with robbing W. 25th Street bank Twice
A federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Charles William Swinney, age 43, of Cleveland, Ohio, with two counts of bank robbery, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Swinney is charged with robbing the Key Bank, 2047 West 25th Street, Cleveland, Ohio, on two separate occasions, June 8, 2012 and June 20, 2012.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle M. Baeppler following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
If convicted, defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, his role in the offense and the unique characteristics of the violation. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
