A Texas man who pleaded guilty in federal court to robbing a Robertsdale bank is scheduled to be arraigned next month in Baldwin Circuit Court for the same incident.

Court records show that Michael Jon Watton, 28, of Dayton, Texas, is slated to appear in Baldwin County Circuit Court at 9 a.m. Feb. 16 to answer to a charge of first-degree robbery. Watton is accused of robbing the bank at knifepoint and taking $3,875 on Oct. 1. Police arrested Watton four days later at his grandmother’s house in Summerdale.
