Cleveland man indicted for three bank robberies

A grand jury returned a three-count indictment charging Omar A. Hasan, 55, of Cleveland, with three counts of bank robbery, said Carole S. Rendon, Acting U.S. States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

The indictment alleges that on November 6, 2015, Hasan robbed the KeyBank, 3110 West 117th Street, of $2,369. On December 11, 2015, Hasan robbed the Ohio Savings Bank, 1866 West 25th Street, of $3,938. On March 21, 2016, Hasan robbed the US Bank, 1958 West 25th Street, of $4,543. All three banks were located in Cleveland and all were federally insured financial institutions at the time of each robbery.

If convicted, the sentence in this case will be determined by the court after consideration of the federal sentencing guidelines which depend upon a number of factors unique to each case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the unique 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 Benedict S. Gullo. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cleveland Division of Police.

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.
