A former University of Charleston basketball player pleaded guilty Tuesday in connection with an April robbery of two men on Virginia Street.
Terrell Lipkins pleaded guilty in Kanawha Circuit Court to first-degree robbery, credit card fraud and conspiracy, the Kanawha County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Lipkins was arrested in connection to the April robbery and attack of two men on Virginia Street East. Two other men, Robbie Dreher and Quincy Washington, turned themselves into police and also were charged in the robbery. Lipkins was accused of using one of the victim’s credit cards.
All three men were basketball players for the University of Charleston. Lipkins was considered one of the stars and was UC’s leading scorer last season. A fourth man, Timothy Schmachtenberger, 22, of Canton, Ohio, also was charged in the case. Schmachtenberger was not a student at the University of Charleston, but police said he worked with the three players to commit the crime.
