A St. John's woman who is alleged to have gone on a crime spree last fall has elected to be tried in Supreme Court by judge and jury.

Lynn Ann Noseworthy, 35, was charged in November 2012 with 20 counts of robbery, attempted robbery and wearing a mask. She allegedly made off with cash after some, but not all of the heists that took place in St. John's and Mount Pearl.

In an eight hour period, Noseworthy is accused with robbing ten small businesses, including five gas bars and three convenience stores.

Noseworthy was not in court on Friday, but her election was entered by her lawyer, Scott Hurley. She is currently out on bail.

A preliminary hearing is set to begin in August, at which time it will be determined if there's enough evidence to go to trial.
