Three Oklahoma City men implicated in a bank robbery ring pleaded guilty to charges in federal court Thursday afternoon.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange accepted the pleas. None of the men were sentenced Thursday.

Jerry Carlton Lewis, 19, pleaded guilty to a charge of bank robbery. He faces a maximum of 25 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

Clarence David Hudson, 42, pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit bank robbery. He faces a maximum five years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

Leon Wayne Murrell, 19, pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a stolen firearm. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

The additional charges against the men were dropped as part of a plea deal, but Lewis was ordered to pay $11,068 restitution.

Six men were indicted in connection with six bank robberies between Jan. 18 and April 12. One of the men, 27-year-old Michael Deon Lewis, pleaded guilty last month. The final accused robbers' cases are unresolved.

Murrell will remain in the Carver Center, an Oklahoma City halfway house, until his sentencing. The other two men were placed back into the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
