Guam - The getaway driver in last year's Bank of Guam robbery enters a global plea deal with the government.

Jackery White appeared before Judge James Canto today where he pled guilty to charges relative to the bank heist, a burglary at the Marianas Collection Agency, and a burglary at Attorney Gary Gumataotao's residence. The judhe said, "As to the charge in the Bank of Guam case, the charge of conspiracy to commit robbery as a 2nd degree felony, how do you wish to plea to conspiracy to commit robbery as a second degree felony? Guilty or not guilty?"

White said, "Guilty, Your Honor."

The plea agreement requires White to testify against his co-defendants in order to receive the three 7.5-year sentences to be served concurrently. Failure to cooperate with the government would result in a three ten-year sentences to be served consecutively, or thirty years total.

Earlier this month white's son Irvin White III also entered a global plea deal with the government with similar conditions.

Only Edward Baza, Jr., the accused gunman in the bank heist will head to trial on March 3.
