guilty on Friday to carjacking an FBI employee he bit and tried
to run over after she tried to help a victim he had robbed,

Jimmy White, 30, of Jersey City, pleaded guilty in U.S.
District Court in Newark to the May 2005 carjacking of the
woman who worked in Newark's FBI office. He faces up to 25
years in prison.

her SUV truck in a Jersey City parking lot after she stopped to
help a 50-year-old man White had punched through a car window
to steal his wallet, according to FBI special agent Steve

when she tried to stop him driving away. He then backed over
her after she fell from the truck's running board, the FBI

The FBI used DNA samples taken from bite marks on the
woman's face and hand and matched it with White, whose name was
listed on a "sexual predator" database after committing several
sex offenses, Siegel said. White will be sentenced June 9 in
federal court in Newark.
