Texas bank robber faces up to life in prison
DALLAS, TX -- A co-conspirator of a bank robber serving life in prison for killing a North Texas armored car guard has pleaded guilty in a string of 2009 holdups.
Prosecutors in Dallas say 50-year-old Jesus Sandoval on Thursday pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bank robbery, to two counts of using, carrying, and brandishing a firearm and to possessing a firearm to further a violent crime.
Sandoval faces up to life in prison when he's sentenced in May for three robberies with 28-year-old Enrique Lopez. Both were arrested on Oct. 3, 2009, in suburban Dallas.
Lopez last year pleaded guilty to five robberies and to killing Brinks Security guard Cresencio Borquez during a September 2009 holdup in Dallas. He was sentenced to two consecutive life terms plus 85 years in prison.
