A woman indicted for robbing the Plains Bell Federal Credit Union has admitted to the crime. 22-year-old Erica Nicole Edwards was arraigned last month on charges of conspiracy, aggravated credit union robbery and using a firearm in a crime.
On Thursday, she pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated credit union robbery. Edwards now faces up to 25 years in prison, $250,000 in fines, plus restitution.
A sentencing date has not been set. Edwards was charged along with co-defendants James Peacock, David Johnson, James Horton and Ivin Wozencraft in a string of Lubbock bank and credit union robberies from April 2004 to January of this year.
All five are in federal custody.
