U.S. Attorney’s Office for The Northern District of Ohio Celebrates Funding Announced During Domestic Violence Awareness Month
A North Canton woman was indicted for robbing four banks.
Fellicia Smith, 39, was indicted on four counts of bank robbery.
The indictment Smith robbed the Fifth Third Bank located in Kent on Dec. 24, 2016, the First National Bank in Boardman on Feb. 18, 2017; the Key Bank in Youngstown on March 31, 2017, and the Key Bank in Findlay on April 3, 2017.
In each robbery, Smith showed the bank teller a knife and demanded cash, 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 records, 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 investigation preceding the indictment was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Peter E. Daly.
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.
