OC's Triple Threat Bank Bandit Pleads Guilty
|Pettis: He could have had a V8.|
Armed only with a handwritten note stating, "Give me all of your 100 and 50 only now," Pettis robbed the Orange County Credit Union in Fullerton, the Union Yes Credit Union in Orange, and finally a U.S. Bank in Buena Park.
Here's my question: Was it worth it to the man dubbed the "Triple Threat Bandit" by the FBI?
Pettis, who is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Liskamm and this month changed his plea to guilty, stole just $5,622 during the heists.
Now, he faces a maximum prison term of 60 years plus a $750,000 fine and full restitution of the loot.
U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter scheduled a September 10 sentencing date.
|Pettis: This will teach my daughter.|
