An Oklahoma City man, one of six charged in connection with a string of armed bank robberies earlier this year in the Oklahoma City area, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a bank robbery charge.
Michael Deon Lewis told Chief U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange that he had a firearm when he entered the IBC Bank, 901 SW 19 in Moore, and demanded a teller put money in a bag.
Then, he said, he went about his day.
Sentencing for Lewis, 27, will be later. He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison and/or a $25,000 fine and five years supervised probation upon his release.
Federal prosecutors agreed to drop two other bank robbery-related charges against Lewis as part of a plea deal.
Lewis is required to pay $11,213 restitution to the IBC Bank for the March 14 robbery and $11,068 to MidFirst Bank, 7500 S Western Ave., which was robbed April 12.
Lewis was among six men indicted in six armed bank robberies that occurred from Jan. 18 through April 12. Lewis is the first of the six to have his case resolved.
The others charged with bank robbery and related counts are Jerry Carlton Lewis, Clarence David Hudson, Charles Glen Johnson, Leon Wayne Murrell and Nicholas Deshon Tubbs.
