NORFOLK, Va. – A Virginia Beach man pleaded guilty to two bank robberies in Norfolk District Court on Monday.

41-year-old Marquis Larosa Buckley will be sentenced on October 3. According to court documents, the first robbery was of Fulton Bank, followed by an armed robbery of a PNC bank.

Buckley faces 20 years in prison for the robberies, but sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties.

A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors, said the Department of Justice.
