Franklin County Prosecutor Press Release

Posted on 11/30/2009

Defendant: Donald Frick

Prosecuting Attorney Ron O’Brien announces today that The Franklin County Grand Jury has returned a three (3) count indictment on Donald Wilson Frick, Jr., age 26, the Reynoldsburg police officer accused of robbing a private dancer at gunpoint.  Frick has been indicted on 1 count Aggravated Robbery (F-1), 1 count Robbery (F-2), and 1 count Robbery  (F-3), all three counts have a firearm specification.  There is only one alleged victim, but multiple robbery charges are permitted because there are different ways to commit a robbery, and a separate count must be included for each method.  The victim alleges that Frick requested her dancing services, provided her with $150.00, asked her for sex, and when she refused, the defendant pulled and pointed a gun at her while he demanded his money back.  The victim called people who were waiting for her outside in their car, and they removed her from the location.

The defendant is not currently in jail.  Arraignment for Donald Frick is set for Monday, November 30th, at 1:30 pm in courtroom 1B.  Bond will be set at that arraignment.
