An Ypsilanti man pleaded guilty to armed robbery Wednesday and admitted to robbing the PNC Bank on Rawsonville Road in Ypsilanti Township twice.
In exchange for pleading guilty to robbing the bank in June, prosecutors agreed not to seek charges against James Robert Murdock, 34, for robbing the same bank in February.
Murdock admitted in court Wednesday that he was responsible for the February robbery. He said he used the same technique in the incidents.
“I walked in there and gave them a note (demanding) money,” he said.
When asked if he implied that he had a gun, Murdock said, “Yes, I did.”
Murdock will have to pay $2,000 in restitution.
The court agreed to a term of nine to 20 years in prison at the time of sentencing, which is scheduled for Sept. 26.
