Rockford woman pleads guilty to Associated Bank robbery

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

A Rockford woman could spend up to twenty years in prison and pay a $250,000 fine after pleading guilty to a March 2012 bank robbery.

Latoya Shaunta Burrows, 32, pled guilty to robbing the Associated Bank located at 612 North Main Street in Rockford on March 20, 2012.

According to the plea agreement, Burrows entered the bank just before 11:00 a.m., walked up to a teller, and handed him a note saying," Put the money in the bag and nobody will get hurt." The teller complied in taking cash out of the drawer, but told Burrows that he did not have a bag. Instead, Burrows grabbed the cash and stuffed it into her bra before walking out of the bank.

Burrows was arrested by Rockford Police a short time later in the vicinity of the bank. She has been in federal custody ever since.

The maximum sentence for bank robbery is 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, up to five years of supervised release, and full restitution.
