Timothy Carson pleads guilty again

Timothy Carson, the former Marine and Minneapolis cop turned robber, has pleaded guilty to a last round of crimes: Five counts of first-degree aggravated robbery and two counts of first-degree attempted aggravated robbery, in Dakota County.

He's already been sentenced to a combined decade behind bars for robbing a bank in Apple Valley, and businesses and individuals in Hennepin County. Unless new charges are brought, the new pleas should mark the end of his case. He'll be sentenced in December.

Carson's crime spree began late last year, driven by a crumbling financial situation. Later he realized that his wife had been lying to him about being raped and battling cancer while he was deployed in Kuwait.

He was arrested the day of the January bank robbery after he reported for duty with MPD.
