Austintown man indicted for two bank robberies

Jarrett N. Dragic, 22, of Austintown, was indicted on two counts of bank robbery, said David A. Sierleja, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, and Stephen D. Anthony, FBI Special Agent in Charge.

 

Drajic robbed a Farmers National Bank in East Liverpool on Feb. 10. He robbed a Farmers National Bank in Canfield on Feb. 17, according to the indictment.

 

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 violations. In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

 

The investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the East Liverpool Police Department, the Columbiana Police Department and the Canfield Police Department. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jason M. Katz.

 

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.
