Cleveland Man Charged With Robbing Bank On Brookpark Road

A grand jury returned a one-count indictments charging Jeremy D. Carpenter, 33, of Cleveland, with one count of bank robbery, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges that Carpenter robbed the U.S. Bank, 2132 Brookpark Road, Cleveland, Ohio, on August 5, 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 Matthew B. Kall, and was investigated by the Cleveland Police Department and the Cleveland Office of 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.
