O.J. Co-Defendant Will Plead Guilty

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The lawyer for one of O.J. Simpson's co-defendants says his client "wishes he would have never met O.J."

Charles Cashmore has told a Las Vegas judge he'll plead guilty and testify against Simpson and four others in the alleged casino hotel room robbery of sports memorabilia dealers. Cashmore says he thinks he has done the right thing.

His attorney says Cashmore can establish who was in the room, what was said and who had guns. Simpson and his lawyers have denied guns were present.

The lawyer says Cashmore was introduced to Simpson and most of the others in the group for the first time minutes before the alleged robbery. He says Cashmore didn't know what was going on, and he didn't have a gun.
