CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP/WCIV) - A man facing weapons and conspiracy charges in a string of Lowcountry holdups over several years has pleaded guilty in federal court.

According to federal court records, 33-year-old Christopher Donnell Simmons of Wadmalaw Island pleaded guilty on Monday to four counts including weapons and conspiracy charges.

The indictment included counts stemming from the holdups of more than a dozen Asian restaurants and check-cashing stores from 2009 through 2011. Authorities say the robberies took place over a wide area from Walterboro to Holly Hill.

As part of a plea agreement, Simmons must make restitution and cooperate with authorities. Two other men charged in the robberies face trial in federal court in Charleston this week.
