CARSON CITY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A man accused of being involved in the attack and robbery of a 101-year-old World War 2 veteran will be tried by a jury for his alleged crimes.
Robert Hernandez will face a jury trial beginning October 6, after pleading not guilty to Robbery Against a Person Over the Age of 60. This is a change from his original guilty plea in July.
Hernandez, alongside Jordan Berkhart, allegedly forced their way into James Sorrentino's home, attacking him and ransacking the house. They got away with a watch, a pocketknife and a wallet containing $30.
Burkhart pleaded guilty to the same charge, and will be sentenced September 30.
