CHARLESTON, W.VA.: A former University of Charleston basketball player faces at least 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to robbery and fraud charges.
Media outlets report that Terrell Lipkins of Canton, Ohio, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Kanawha County Circuit Court to first-degree robbery, credit card fraud and a conspiracy charge. Sentencing is set for Oct. 30.
Lipkins and two other former UC players were charged in a Charleston robbery in April. Police say the trio attacked and robbed two men of cash and a credit card. The credit card was later used at a fast-food restaurant and a convenience store.
Lipkins’ co-defendants, 22-year-old Robbie Dreher of Greenville, S.C., and 22-year-old Quincy Washington of Florence, S.C., are awaiting trial. All three were dismissed from the UC team after they were charged.
