A 21-year-old Quebec woman who gained notoriety as the "hottest alleged thief on the planet" could now face several years behind bars.

Victoriaville native Stéphanie Beaudoin has agreed to plead guilty to 30 charges in connection with a series of break-ins that took place in Arthabaska and l'Érable counties over the summer, QMI Agency reported.

She had initially faced 114 charges in total.

Beaudoin, a nursing student, had been accused of stealing items worth over $5,000 including jewelry and firearms after allegedly breaking into homes with the help of teenaged accomplices in June and July.

Appearing in court Monday, she said she regretted her actions, French-language newspaper Nouvelle Union reported.

Beaudoin's lawyer Denis Lavigne told the newspaper that she had experienced a period of depression, and that she's following doctors' advice for treatment.

The severity of the allegations against Beaudoin did nothing to stop her gaining a reputation as the "hottest alleged thief on the planet" after some photos of her appeared on social media.

She will next appear in court on Dec. 9 to officially enter the guilty pleas, QMI Agency said. She faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
