Date Posted: 2010-05-28

A 19-year-old Marine has pleaded guilty to injuring a taxi driver with a knife last year, and then robbing him, during the first ever lay judge trial involving a U.S. serviceman.

The Marine, who the court declined to identify, was accused of stealing 21,000 and $100 cash from the driver at knifepoint on August 1, 2009. The lay judges were chosen from the public at the Naha District Court for the trial.

The next trial sessions will be next Tuesday and Wednesday, with the judge handing down a verdict on Thursday.
