PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a 25-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to charges arising from a string of jewelry store heists across the South.

Abigail Lee Kemp waived her right to trial in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina when she accepted a plea deal Wednesday in Panama City federal court, local news organizations are reporting.

She has already pleaded guilty to conspiring with three men in the robbery of a Panama City Beach jewelry store, the reports say. Arrested last January, she was charged in a string of robberies spanning a 10-month period.

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 13.
