Terrell McQueen, 30, pleaded guilty to a superseding information charging him with one count of conspiracy to commit Hobbs Act robberies, Fishman said.
According to documents filed in the case and statements made in court, McQueen was part of a conspiracy to rob a series of electronics stores in New Jersey and New York at gunpoint between May 30, 2012 and Oct. 2, 2012, with the goal of selling stolen items illegally.
He said he provided the weapons used in the robberies of the New Jersey stores, coordinated the resale of stolen merchandise and distributed profits from illegal resale to the other conspirators.
He was arrested on May 30 of this year and has remained in prison ever since.
McQueen faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the conspiracy charge. His sentencing is scheduled for June 9, 2014.
