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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
