Woman pleads guilty to robbing Fall River store


FALL RIVER (AP) - A Fall River woman accused of robbing a city liquor store three times within a 24-hour period, and who was recognized by the store's owner because she had spent time in jail for robbing the same store, has pleaded guilty.

Latasha Singletary pleaded guilty this week to three counts of armed robbery after a judge ruled her mentally competent based on a court psychiatrist's evaluation .

The Herald News reports that the 30-year-old Singletary is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 20.

Prosecutors say Singletary robbed Anna's Liquors at knifepoint once on June 12 and twice on June 13. She made off with cash, cigarettes, liquor and lottery tickets. The store manager recognized Singletary as the woman who robbed the store in 2011.
