Toledo man charged with robbing same bank on back-to-back days

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Northern District of Ohio

An indictment was filed charging John Lee Robinson, 53, of Toledo, with two counts of bank robbery.

Robinson is accused of robbing the Citizens Bank at 4260 Monroe Street in Toledo on June 3 and the same bank the following day.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after reviewing 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 investigating agency in this case is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Toledo.  The case is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Freeman.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  Defendants are entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
