Cleveland man indicted for using a firearm to rob richmond heights bank

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 7, 2013

A federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Marcus Cross, age 23, of Cleveland, with armed bank robbery and using a firearm during the commission of a felony, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges that Cross robbed a Huntington Bank in Richmond Heights, Ohio, stole approximately $2,306 from the bank, and discharged a firearm during the commission of the robbery. 

If convicted, Cross’ sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including Cross’ 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

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam J. Hollingsworth following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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
