As she awaited her turn before the judge today, Victoria Spoonamore appeared to be in a pleasant mood, smiling, chatting and even bobbing to an imaginary rhythm.
But Spoonamore turned somber and even tearful as she stood before Boyle Circuit Judge Darren Peckler and pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and first-degree wanton endangerment.

She's likely to receive 12 years in prison when Peckler sentences her on April 8.
Spoonamore, 29, gained statewide notoriety in the fall when bit a clerk a Chill's convenience store while yelling that she had AIDS. Tests confirmed that Spoonamore does carry the HIV virus that can lead to AIDS. The employee was not infected by the bites.
