A southern Illinois woman who came to be called the "Jason" robber pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery.

Becky Jo Stodghill wore a Jason Halloween mask and stole money from several businesses in Jackson, Williamson and Franklin counties in fall of 2010.

According to the Williamson County State's Attorney's Office, Stodghilll entered the guilty plea Tuesday.

It's an open plea which means prosecutors and the defense have not agreed on how much prison time she'll face.

That will be left up to a judge after both sides make recommendations.

She could face a maximum of 30 years in prison.
