Two charged for Sheffield lake bank robbery
A federal grand jury returned an indictment today charging two people with robbing the Chase Bank at 4100 East Lake Road, Sheffield Lake, Ohio, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Andrew Perry, 21, of Lakewood, and Bryce Herring 18, of Elyria, were indicted on charges of bank robbery for the January 11, 2014, robbery of the financial institution.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew B. Kall following investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Sheffield Lake Police Department, and the North Olmsted Police Department.
If convicted, each 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.
