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.

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.”
