A Caseyville woman pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to robbing a convenience store.
Acting U.S. Attorney James L. Porter said Jenna M. McGlasson was charged with interference with commerce by robbery and with brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence. The 28-year-old woman is set to be sentenced to prison on Sept. 2.
Porter said she faces seven years to life, up to five years of supervised release, a fine up to $250,000.
McGlasson entered a convenience store June 25, 2015, in Caseyville with a dark hoodie covering her head. Porter said she pointed a pistol at a store employee and demanded money from the employee. McGlasson then jumped onto the counter, accessed the store’s cash register and attempted to steal money.
