Three Lawrence suspects accused of participating in a September robbery at a south Lawrence apartment indicated they likely will enter pleas instead of facing a trial, attorneys for the men said Tuesday.
Two defendants Joshua Self, 18, and Douglas Bittinger, 19, waived their rights to a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon. Each of their attorneys said their clients would likely enter pleas in the case before their scheduled trials.
Another defendant Christopher Self, 20, has a plea hearing scheduled next month.
Prosecutors accuse the three men of participating in a scheme to use a gun to rob two 20-year-old Lawrence men on Sept. 6 at an apartment at The Exchange, 3100 Ousdahl Road. One victim was knocked unconscious and suffered a head wound.
