According to a news release by the Department of Justice, Rickley Joshua Senning, 33, pleaded guilty to five separate armed robberies of convenience stores, hotels, and banks between October 2021 and December 2021.

Senning and accomplice Jesann Willis, 36, traveled through several states to commit these robberies. Senning brandished a firearm at each location at employees, with 15 victims held at gunpoint. One of the armed robberies occurred at a jewelry store in Richmond, where Senning held the business owner and their son at gunpoint while Willis collected over $100,000 of jewelry belonging to the business. The other robberies took place at a mix of gas stations, convenience stores, and banks.

Senning is set to be sentenced on June 6, facing a maximum of 20 years in prison for the armed robberies, a mandatory minimum of seven years, and a maximum of life in prison for brandishing a firearm during the jewelry store robbery. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
