SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A 39-year-old man who has admitted to robbing eight banks in Salt Lake County pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges of robbing two of them.
Antonio Juan Flores, Jr., of Salt Lake City, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 18. Previously convicted of two felony drug charges in California, Flores is considered a "career offender," which means his sentences of up to 20 years on each guilty plea could be increased.
Melodie Rydalch, spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Paul Warner, said Flores pleaded guilty on charges he robbed $871 from a bank teller on April 29 and $750 from another teller on May 13.
Flores also admitted he robbed six other banks between March 14 and April 24. Money robbed from all eight banks totaled $18,285.
Rydalch said Flores agreed to pay restitution to the banks.
