Two star-crossed lovers whose courtship included bank robbery have pleaded guilty, with one agreeing to testify against the other. Craig Pritchert accepted a plea bargain last week, admitting he had staged heists in Oregon, Colorado and Arizona. His girlfriend, Nova Guthrie, drove the getaway car for two of the three robberies. Guthrie pleaded guilty in May, agreeing to testify against the man of her dreams. With his plea deal, that will no longer be necessary.
