A bank robber who plead guilty in federal court last week is now helping the government.
22-year-old Erica Nicole Edwards was arraigned in federal court March 1st. She pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated credit union robbery. Now, she signed a plea agreement to cooperate with the government and give truthful statements about her and the others involvement in multiple bank robberies. Because she is helping the government, Edwards will face a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and restitution.
Edwards was charged along with co-defendants James Peacock, David Johnson, and 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.
