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.

He needs to be a man, for likely the first time in his life, and take responsibility for his actions.

Hernandez is simply avoiding the inevitable. He was there at the victim's home and that's all it takes to be a co-conspirator in this crime. What else was he doing there?
