MARQUETTE, Mich. -- A man arrested in Wyoming after authorities say he robbed a bank in Michigan's Upper Peninsula while his wife and 2-year-old daughter sat in a getaway car has pleaded guilty in the case.

Justin McLean faces up to 25 years in prison when sentenced Sept. 20 following Wednesday's plea in U.S. District Court on a bank robbery charge.

The Northern Michigan Bank branch near Marquette was robbed Oct. 12. McLean was arrested as a fugitive later that month.

The Mining Journal of Marquette has reported that McLean's wife told the FBI that she believed her husband was going into a McDonald's restaurant next to the bank.
