Robin Ann Godwin of Century, Fla., pleaded guilty to count two of an indictment charging her with bank robbery. Reports from law enforcement say the robbery was a two-person act with a former bank employee joining in the crime with more than $250,000 taken in the heist.

Steele is expected to appear in federal court for sentencing Nov. 9.

Godwin will return to court for sentencing on Jan. 16, 2013.
