Fourth O.J. co-defendant pleads guilty, agrees to testify against him
LAS VEGAS -- Another O.J. Simpson co-defendant is pleading guilty in a Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping case.
Charles Ehrlich is pleading to reduced charges of attempted accessory to robbery and attempted burglary.
He's one of the men who accompanied Simpson during a confrontation last September with two sports memorabilia dealers at a casino hotel. He's now the fourth to take a plea deal.
Ehrlich lives in Miami.
That leaves two defendants -- Simpson and Clarence "C.J." Stewart -- to face trial next month. The two have pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. They could face life in prison if convicted.
Simpson has maintained that he was trying to retrieve personal belongings and family heirlooms, and that no guns were involved.
Ehrlich has agreed to testify against Simpson at the former football star's trial. He could face as much as five years in prison. He'll be sentenced after Simpson's trial.
