A woman has pleaded guilty to her involvement in an operation where she and two others robbed people coming out of local casinos.

Amy Hoover, 25, pled guilty to five counts of aggravated robbery on Tuesday. She faces between 3-50 years in prison, and will be sentenced June 1.

As part of the plea deal, Hoover agreed to testify against the two men who were also involved in the operation Kenyatta Erkins, 36, and Ugbe Ojile, 34.

According to Judge Nadine Allen, Hoover was grateful that she will be put into jail, because it allowed her to deliver a healthy baby. Hoover was addicted to drugs before being sent to prison.

Ojile and Erkins are scheduled to be back in court on May 16.
