Originally scheduled to go to trial Monday, Bailey reportedly plead guilty to first-degree felony aggravated robbery instead.
As part of the deal, court documents showed he “pledged to provide truthful testimony” for prosecutors in the other criminal cases against Sedrick Jermaine Townsend, 37, and Santo LaCharles Stephens, 21.
Prosecutors said they believe Townsend and Stephens are the other two involved in the midday heist.

Because Bailey is reportedly set to provide testimony, they further said this sets him up for probation, instead of the up-to-99-year sentence he would otherwise be eligible for if convicted.

During an interview, Jim Prewitt, a chief prosecutor in the major crimes department, if he did end up gong to prison, the sentence would be capped at 30 years.
