Youngstown man charged with robbing bank in Campbell

A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Orlando Popa, 26, of Youngstown, with bank robbery, said Acting U.S. Attorney Carole S. Rendon.

The indictment alleges that on or about February 1, 2016, Popa robbed the Huntington Bank, in Campbell, Ohio, of approximately $1,000.

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 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 Campbell Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force. The matter is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jason M. Katz.

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.
