A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Oscar Curtis Robinson, 38, of Tallmadge, with possession with the intent to distribute fentanyl, David A. Sierleja, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

 

The indictment alleges that on February 2, 2017, Robinson, possessed with intent to distribute a quantity of a mixture and substance containing fentanyl.

 

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 and the Akron FBI Safe Streets Task Force. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Linda H. Barr.

 

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.
