BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A Bowling Green man has pleaded guilty to robbing three businesses in less than two months.

The Bowling Green Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2oKRzfN ) that 30-year-old Lee Matthew Rector accepted a plea agreement recommending a 20-year sentence for three counts of second-degree robbery Monday.

Rector admitted in court to robbing three businesses between July and September 2016. He was arrested Sept. 12 and confessed to robbing the businesses using an airsoft gun before being advised of his rights. He continued to speak with detectives after being informed of his rights, according to his citation.

The plea agreement opposes probation but downgrades a grand jury’s indictment of three counts of first-degree robbery, which would have carried a 50-year prison sentence recommendation.

Rector will be sentenced May 23.
