She was accused of executing six armed heists across five states.

Abigail Kemp – who was arrested in January for a string of armed jewelry store robberies in five different states across the Southeast – has pleaded guilty, the Panama City News Herald reports. The article says that the 25-year-old Kemp, who allegedly worked with three accomplices, pleaded guilty to several counts of interference with commerce by threat or violence and committing a violent crime with a gun. She could face up to a $1 million fine and 54 years in prison, though it’s not clear whether the length of her sentence will depend on her cooperation with authorities when the accomplices go to trial next week. Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
