The two men accused of helping OJ Simpson in an armed robbery pleaded guilty to lesser charges, paving the way for them to give evidence against him.

They have agreed a deal giving them reduced sentences in return for testifying against Simpson and three others over the hotel room theft of sports collectibles from two memorabilia dealers.

Las Vegas Clark County District Attorney David Roger agreed to drop charges including kidnapping, armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy against Walter Alexander and Charles Cashmore. Both were bailed to await sentencing.

Mr Roger said Cashmore could get probation or up to one to five years in prison.

The district attorney said he would seek a suspended sentence for Alexander, which could get him probation instead of one to six years in prison.

Simpson ,60, and the other three co-defendants did not have to appear while Alexander and Cashmore entered their pleas.
