(Newser) – A third man accused in the OJ Simpson robbery case agreed today to plead guilty to reduced charges and testify against Simpson and two others. Michael McClinton says he brought two guns to a Las Vegas hotel room at the Juice's request and acted like a cop while wielding one. He faces up to 11 years in prison, the AP reports.

McClinton's lawyer said more information will come out "during the course of the preliminary hearing or ... after he enters his plea." His testimony would bolster prosecutors' argument that Simpson is lying when he says no guns were involved in the September incident. Simpson and two remaining co-defendants face 12 charges; a kidnapping conviction alone could bring a life sentence.
