Plea agreement reached for Nichols

(Continued)

BATESVILLE —

They ended up in what he described as a “subdivision with just a few houses with one streetlight (in Cross Plains) …. Dan-Dan gave directions to Allison,” who was driving. Nichols announced he wore a disguise, “a bandana up to my eyes and a sock hat …. Dan-Dan had made a mask out of a sock hat that had eye holes.”

Nichols revealed he was carrying the gun and along with Hodge went into the house. They ended up getting money and pot from a man there.

Hertel asked the defendant if he was worried about the man calling the police. He pointed out, “I was not worried because I was thinking, 'He’s a drug dealer. He’s not going to call the cops.'”

At that time, “Me and Dan-Dan wanted to go home …. But Allison wanted to stay. She wanted more money.”

The teen reported Hodge picked out the second house (in Ripley County), but they didn’t go inside because they knew the owner had guns, and “I said I wasn’t going to do it …. Dan-Dan broke into a car and got some money,” which he and Moore took.

Nichols reported the next stop was the Hershman house in Milan. Hodge told them he had dated someone there and his dad had done some construction work at the house.

“Allison, Dan-Dan and me got out of the car …. Allison felt we weren’t doing anything right. She had the gun …. There was a faint light in the window and the TV was on upstairs. Dan-Dan checked all the doors, but they were all locked. Allison decided to go in the side door, and Dan-Dan kicked it in.”

Nichols revealed Moore went in first, followed by Hodge and himself. By the time he got inside, “I heard a lady screaming and heard Allison saying, ‘Get on the floor’ …. The woman and Allison were pushing each other back and forth and Allison said, ‘Test me again.’ The woman said, 'What the hell?’
