Ashland Man Indicted for Robbing North Olmsted Bank
A grand jury returned a two-count indictment charging Jordon Louis Dongarra, 33, of Ashland, with one count of bank robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
The indictment alleges that Dongarra robbed the Ohio Savings Bank, 28880 Lorain Road, in North Olmsted, Ohio, a federally insured financial institution, on December 30, 2014.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to his 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 is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin Seabury Gould, and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and North Olmsted Police Department.
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.
