MINNEAPOLIS (KTTC) -- A Rochester woman has pleaded guilty to her role in an armed robbery at a McDonald's in Byron.

Quiana Evans, 30, pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to one count of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of aiding and abetting in the robbery committed in June of 2011.

A federal grand jury indicted Evans along with her accomplice, Christian Alexander, in taking more than $1,800 from the Byron restaurant in the armed heist.

Alexander had the gun, and has already been convicted. He is serving a 15-year prison sentence.

Evans will be sentenced at a future hearing. She faces a potential maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
