McKinney man pleads guilty to local bank robbery


Greenville – Justin DeShawn Simmons, of McKinney, pleaded guilty Thursday to holding up the Bank of America in Greenville in September, 2009.

Simmons' alleged co-actor, Donte' DeBryce Brumfield, also of McKinney, has pleaded not guilty and scheduled for trial later this month. No weapons were used and no one was injured in the holdup.

Simmons had reportedly met with an employee of the bank five days earlier to apply for a loan, which was denied due to an outstanding balance with the bank.
