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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
