Man indicted for Cleveland bank robbery
A grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Roland Jerome Lamarr, 59, with bank robbery, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
The indictment alleges that Lamarr robbed Charter One Bank located at 1215 Superior Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio, on May 2, 2013.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Seabury Gould, following investigation by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and members of the Cleveland Division of Police.
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.
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.
