A Baltimore man described by federal prosecutors as a career criminal has pleaded guilty to robbing or trying to rob 10 banks in the city over a 25-day stretch last July.
Several of the banks robbed by 39-year-old Frederick McMillan were in the heart of downtown. In each case, he handed a teller a note demanding money, and he claimed in seven of the notes that he had a gun.
The robberies netted a total of nearly $24,000.
McMillan turned himself in a day after the last robbery, told authorities he was the culprit and identified himself from surveillance footage. He had been convicted previously of bank robbery.
He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison, but prosecutors are calling for a sentence of 12 1/2 to 15 1/2 years. He will be sentenced June 21.
