Sentencing is set for Jan. 13.
Abigail Lee Kemp has admitted to more crimes committed during a jewelry-store robbery spree covering several states.
Kemp last week admitted to robberies in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, the Panama City News Herald reports. Her plea was entered in federal court in Panama City.
According to the newspaper: “She already had pleaded guilty to conspiring with Lewis Jones III, 36, and brothers Larry Bernard Gilmore, 44, and Michael Bernard Gilmore, 47, in the robbery of a jewelry store in Pier Park and testified against the men in an attempt to receive leniency from the court.”
In all, Kemp, 25, has now admitted to two counts of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence along with six counts of interfering with commerce by threat.
Kemp’s sentencing is set for Jan. 13. She could face a life sentence for each count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
