A lawyer says one of the co-defendants in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery case has agreed to plead guilty to a reduced charge and testify against Simpson and four others.
Charles Cashmore's lawyer tells The Associated Press that Cashmore will plead guilty Monday to being an accessory to robbery, a felony that could get him up to five years in prison.
A court clerk confirms that a court hearing is scheduled.
Simpson and five others, including Cashmore, are charged with kidnapping, armed robbery, assault, burglary and conspiracy in the Sept. 13 encounter with two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.
Cashmore's lawyer Edward Miley says Cashmore has agreed to testify that two other men who entered the room with Simpson were armed.
