LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — A man blamed for three bank and credit union robberies in West Texas since late 2012 has pleaded guilty and faces up to 60 years in prison.

No sentencing date was immediately set for 42-year-old Jeffrey Hensley of Lubbock, who was arrested in April and remains in custody. He also faces a fine of up to $750,000.

Federal prosecutors in Lubbock say Hensley pleaded guilty to the Dec. 8 robbery of Plains Capital Bank, the Sept. 14 holdup of First United Bank and the Feb. 13 robbery of Alliance Federal Credit Union.

Prosecutors say during all three Lubbock holdups a robber slipped a threatening note to tellers and then fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Hensley pleaded guilty Friday.
