Abigail Kemp – the 25-year-old woman who recently pleaded guilty to carrying out six armed robberies of jewelry stores in five different states across the Southeast – testified against her three co-conspirators in hopes of receiving a lighter sentence, the Panama City News Herald reports.

According to the article, she described the details of the spree to the jurors and told them: “[The co-conspirators] made me feel good about myself — like I was part of something. I didn’t like what I was doing, but I liked the way they made me feel.”

The defense attorneys of the co-conspirators, however, painted a different picture of Kemp, arguing that she “repeatedly committed crimes before becoming a robber, and was a drug abuser and a scorned lover with a significant incentive to lie on the stand and implicate others in her crime.”

The article details the following exchange that took place between Kemp and a defense attorney:

DA: “What were you looking at before your agreement with the government?”

Kemp: “Life in prison.”

DA: “And that is vastly different from what you hope to receive with your cooperation.”

Kemp: “Correct.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
