Youngstown man indicted for using firearm to rob a bank last month

A Youngstown man was indicted for using a firearm to rob a bank last month.

Dabraylin Hawkins, 23, was indicted in one count of armed bank robbery and one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence.

Hawkins used a Hi Point 9 mm pistol on July 25, 2019, to rob Home Savings Bank, 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 record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offenses and the characteristics of the violations.  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 Yasmine Makridis.

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.
