Luz Berrios Berrios, a defendant in the $7-million Wells Fargo robbery case, pleaded guilty in Hartford, Conn., to a charge of conspiring to transport several thousand dollars of stolen money. Racketeering charges against Berrios will be dropped under the plea bargain, prosecutors said. Defendant Paul Weinberg, an attorney from Springfield, Mass., also pleaded guilty to charges of transporting some of the stolen money. The guilty pleas were made on the day scheduled for the start of jury selection for seven of 16 defendants in the Wells Fargo case.
