CLARKSBURG (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman has pleaded guilty for her involvement in a bank robbery in Weirton.

Thirty-two-year-old Jessica Crawford of Marianna, Pa., entered the plea Friday in federal court in Clarksburg.

The charge involved a December 2010 robbery of a United Bank branch in Weirton, although federal prosecutors say Crawford was the getaway driver for her then-boyfriend in several other bank robberies in Pennsylvania and one in Morgantown.

Prosecutors say Rudolph T. Haladyna, formerly of Clarksville, Pa., has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for the robberies.

Crawford faces up to 25 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
