Police in Kentucky say that a 29-year-old administrative assistant at the University of Kentucky is responsible for multiple bank robberies dating back to 2010.

The woman was arrested earlier this month after a robbery at a PNC Bank. Police were led to the 29-year-old after a witness described the alleged robber’s car to them. Authorities claim that there are similarities between this most recent robbery and three others, which has led them to believe the 29-year-old is responsible for all four robberies.

One of the woman’s friends says the 29-year-old has been dealing with financial difficulties. However, she finds it hard to believe that her friend could be involved in such serious crimes.

“I could never believe in a million years that she would become involved in something like this,” the friend said.

Authorities claim that in all four cases, the alleged robber wore a surgical mask along with sunglasses and a pink hat.

The 29-year-old has pleaded not guilty.

While police believe they have the right person in custody, the woman remains innocent until prosecutors can prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. As the case moves forward, new information may clear the woman’s name.

When people in Kentucky face serious criminal charges, they may find it beneficial to rely on the expertise of an experienced criminal defense attorney. The criminal justice system is complex, but an attorney will work hard to defend an individual against the charges while ensuring that their rights have not and will not be violated.
