One of the men accused of staging an armed robbery with OJ Simpson today agreed to give evidence against him.

Charles Cashmore, 40, told a judge he would plead guilty to a felony and testify against Simpson and four others in relation to the alleged theft of sports collectibles in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Cashmore can testify that guns were involved in the confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers, his lawyer said.

Simpson and his lawyers have denied guns were in the room.

"In District Court, he'll be pleading guilty to accessory to robbery," District Attorney David Roger said in court today.

"He's agreed to provide truthful testimony."

Simpson and the others, Walter Alexander, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, Michael McClinton, and Charles Ehrlich, are due in court for a preliminary hearing on November 8.

A judge will decide then whether there is enough evidence to send them for trial in a state court.
