FORT WORTH, Texas -

(AP) - A 20-year-old Fort Worth man who pleaded guilty to an armed robbery spree in 2011 is headed to prison with nine life sentences.
    
Karrington Braziel entered his plea to nine counts of aggravated robbery but left his punishment to a Tarrant County jury.
    
The Fort Worth Star Telegram reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/13ossxo ) prosecutors provided evidence of Braziel's record, including assault on a public servant while he was a juvenile and that he'd been a problem in jail while awaiting trial.
    
The robbery charges were based on a series of holdups over about a two-week span in November 2011. He was caught after a witness got his license number following a convenience store heist.
    
The nine sentences will be served concurrently.
