Latoya Shaunta Burrows, 32, of Rockford pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Fredrick J Kapala to the robbery of Associated Bank on March 20, 2012.
According to the written plea agreement, Burrows entered the bank, bypassed the line and went up to the teller. She placed a note in front of the teller which read: "Put the money in the bag and nobody will get hurt." The teller removed the cash from the teller drawer, but told Burrows that he did not have a bag. Burrows took the money and stuffed it in her bra and walked out of the bank.
Shortly after the robbery, Burrows was arrested by the Rockford Police Department near the bank.
Bank robbery carries a maximum of 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and up to 5 years of supervised release following imprisonment.
