CO-DEFENDANTS TO TESTIFY AGAINST O.J. SIMPSON
Two co-defendants have agreed to plead guilty to a reduced charge and testify against O.J. Simpson in connection with Simpson's alleged robbery caper Sept. 13 in Las Vegas.
Walter Alexander, 46, of Mesa, Ariz., told a judge he will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery, while Charles Cashmore, 40, of Las Vegas, said he would plead guilty to accessory to robbery. Alexander could face up to one to six years in prison. Cashmore faces up to five years in prison.
"He can establish who was in the room, what was said, who had guns, who didn't have guns, potentially who may have seen guns, who didn't see guns," Cashmore's lawyer Edward Miley said. "I think he wishes he would have never met O.J."
Both Alexander and Cashmore waived their preliminary hearings and arraignment was for Oct. 23.
Neither Simpson or his lawyers have commented on the new developments in the case.
