A Washington County woman who, along with her boyfriend, was accused of being a modern-day “Bonnie and Clyde,” pleaded guilty on Friday in federal court to participating in a bank robbery in West Virginia.

Jessica Crawford, 32, of Marianna, pleaded guilty for her involvement in the Dec. 3, 2010, robbery of the United Bank in Weirton, prosecutors said.

Crawford and her former boyfriend, Rudolph Todd Haladyna of Clarksville, Greene County, also were responsible for robbing five other banks in Fayette and Washington counties and in West Virginia, prosecutors said.

Crawford, who is accused of being the getaway driver in most of the holdups, is awaiting sentencing. Haladyna is serving a 20-year prison sentence imposed as part of a plea arrangement.
