Woman Pleads Guilty After Robbing Man at Gunpoint

A Tulsa woman pleaded guilty today in federal court for her role in robbing a man at gunpoint at a local hotel, announced U.S. Attorney Trent Shores.

Rebecca Raye Jackson, 33, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to use or carry a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence and to robbery in Indian Country.

“The victim in this case found himself staring into the barrel of a shotgun after Rebecca Jackson and her coconspirator lured him to a hotel with intent to steal his money and belongings,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “This office will hold accountable individuals who place lives in jeopardy and ensure justice for victims of crime.”

In her plea agreement, Jackson admitted that on Sept. 26, 2020, she conspired with another individual to lure the victim into a room at a Super 8 Hotel in Tulsa with the promise of sex. When the victim walked into the room, the two women locked the door, and Jackson pointed a shotgun at the victim and robbed him. She took the victim’s money, keys, wallet and cell phone.

Chief U.S. District Judge John E. Dowdell set sentencing for May 24, 2021.

The Tulsa Police Department and FBI conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ryan Heatherman is prosecuting the case.
