According to a recent police report, a man from Cleveland was indicted for his part in an armed bank robbery.
Devon Hawkins-Walker, 22, was indicted on one count of armed bank robbery and one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence.
According to the indictment, Hawkins-Walker was involved with others in the armed robbery of the Citizens Bank on Puritas Avenue in Cleveland on January 31.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Cleveland Division of Police. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Zarzycki.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after going through factors that are unique to this case, as well as the defendant’s earlier criminal record, if any, the defendant’s part in the offense and the qualities of the violation. In all cases, the sentence won’t surpass the statutory maximum and in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s problem to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
