YORK, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska woman who made a video in which she gleefully described robbing a bank has pleaded guilty to the crime.

19-year-old Hannah Sabata pleaded guilty Monday in district court to the Nov. 27 robbery of the Waco branch of Cornerstone Bank in Waco.

Sabata changed her plea from not guilty, and in return a charge of theft was dismissed.

Sabata, of Stromsburg, had been charged with stealing a car, which she used in the robbery.

After the robbery, Sabata recorded a video in which she displayed cash and bragged about stealing a car and robbing a bank. She spoke of "having the best day of her life."

She posted the video to the Internet site YouTube.

Sentencing is set for June 17.
