Cleveland Man Indicted For Robbing Streetsboro Bank
A grand jury returned an indictment charging Ronnell A. Allen, of Cleveland, age 32, with one count of bank robbery, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
The indictment alleges that Allen, along with his accomplice, Eddie Fletcher, robbed the First Merit Bank of Streetsboro, Ohio, on January 10, 2013. It further alleges that the two men used force, violence, and intimidation to steal approximately $2,083.
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.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney M. Kendra Klump following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Streetsboro 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.
