(Newser) – A second man charged along with OJ Simpson in a Vegas armed robbery has copped a plea and will testify against the football great, who could now face life in prison if convicted of the felony charges. Walter Alexander joins Charles Cashmore in agreeing to testify, reports the New York Daily News, and Cashmore plans to testify that guns were involved

"I think he wishes he would have never met OJ," said Cashmore's lawyer. Cashmore and Alexander face a series of felony charges, including armed robbery and kidnapping, that could land them in prison for up to five or six years. Simpson, currently free on $125,000 bail, maintains that no guns were involved and that he was retrieving stolen belongings.
