The woman charged with being an accomplice in the robbery of the Bank of Colorado along W. Victory Way has pleaded guilty. 38-year-old Kristy Lynn Carrillo was in district court Monday. The robbery was back in September. Carrillo was in the car during the robbery when a man went in and gave a note to the teller, demanding cash. Carrillo spent more than 100 days in jail before making bond. Her guilty plea comes with a deferment request of three years, which means she’ll be on probation for three years. She also told the judge that she has entered an out-patient recovery program.
