FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A woman accused of robbing a pair of Grand Forks banks within two weeks last fall has pleaded guilty in federal court.

Thirty-nine-year-old Charlene Corona, also known as Charlene Espinoza, faced two counts of bank robbery and pleaded guilty to both on Tuesday.

Authorities say Corona used a knife to rob a Bremer Bank on Sept. 30 and a handgun to hold up the Citizen Community Credit Union on Oct. 12.

She faces up to 40 years in prison, half a million dollars in fines and restitution. A sentencing date was not immediately set.
