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.

Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 12.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
