RICHMOND, Va- The Granddad Bandit will plead guilty to multiple bank robbery counts next month.

Officials say 53-year-old Michael Francis Mara will plead guilty.

Mara is accused of robbing more than two dozen banks in 13 states. He is charged with two robberies in Virginia and has agreed to plead guilty in Richmond to four robberies in Alabama and one in Arkansas.

Mara was named the "Granddad Bandit" to help law enforcement and the public to identity him. Mara was arrested on August 11 at his home in Baton Rouge.

He is due in court February 10.
