Cleveland man charged with bank robbery, using firearm during felony

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 8, 2010

Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that a federal grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Mitchell Perkins, age 28, of Cleveland, Ohio, with armed bank robbery and using a firearm during the commission of a felony.

If convicted, Perkins’ sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including Perkins’ 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 Michelle M. Baeppler 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
