A man who tried to rob a north-side bank, but fled without getting any cash, pleaded guilty Thursday to attempted robbery.

Jeffrey Boggs, 28, is accused of trying to rob the Wells Fargo Bank, 1260 W. Prince Road, on Feb. 20.

When Boggs gave a note to the teller, who was protected by a bulletproof window, she announced that the bank was being robbed, and the man fled the scene.

He was arrested the following week.

Boggs faces between one year and three years and nine months in prison.

Roger Duncan, Pima County Superior Court hearing officer, deferred accepting Boggs' plea until sentencing to allow time for victims to give their input.

Boggs is scheduled to be sentenced April 24 by Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini.
