BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- The man known as the “White Sock” robber entered a guilty plea in the sexual assault of a woman at a Stratford boat launch and is looking at 18 months in prison, according to the Connecticut Post.

Christopher Walsh, 33, of Milford, entered the plea in court Tuesday to charges of fourth-degree sexual assault, first-degree reckless endangerment and violating probation, the Connecticut Post said.

The judge said he faces five years, with a suspended sentence after serving 18 months, Connecticut Post reported.

Walsh previously served time in jail because he held up victims in Trumbull and Stratford hotels and at a Trumbull bank while wearing a white sock on his hand, thus earning his nickname, said the Connecticut Post.

Walsh is accused of sexually assaulting a woman he met at a bar Nov. 22, 2015, then drove to the Birdseye boat launch and attacked, said police, according to the Connecticut Post.
