Alliance Man Charged with Bank Robbery
|U.S. Attorney’s Office November 15, 2011|
Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, today announced that a grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Perry W. Maurer, Jr., aka Toby Maurer, age 45, of Alliance, Ohio, of bank robbery.
The indictment alleges that on or about December 24, 2010, Maurer Jr., used force, violence and intimidation to rob the Bank of Magnolia at 122 North Main Street, Magnolia, Ohio, of $7,583.
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 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 case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew B. Kall, following investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
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.
