Cleveland man indicted for escape

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 30, 2012

 

A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Terrence Hill, age 27, of Cleveland, for escape from an institution or facility, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The one-count indictment charges that Terrence Hill, while serving a sentence for the distribution of crack cocaine, escaped from his confinement at Oriana House.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the 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.

The case was presented to the grand jury by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel J. Riedl following an investigation by the United States Marshals Service and the Bureau of Prisons.

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.
