A WREXHAM man has admitted robbery.
When Steven Austin Thomas pleaded guilty to the robbery, the prosecution dropped the charge against his partner.
Tracey Marie Williams admitted a charge of assaulting the robbery victim and that was accepted by the prosecution.
Thomas, 33, of Bell Court, admitted the robbery on June 15, when it was alleged a man was kicked and punched and his mobile phone, tobacco, £2.50 in cash and a milk shake were stolen.
Williams admitted assault and the prosecution offered no evidence on the robbery charge against her.
Judge Merfyn Hughes QC, sitting at Mold Crown Court, said he was uncomfortable it might appear to Thomas the prosecution was seeking to put pressure on him to plead guilty in order to protect his partner.
Prosecutor Mark Roberts said Thomas understood the concern but said that would not be correct.
The issue had been considered by the CPS as long ago as July and a decision had been taken then that a guilty plea to assault from Williams would be acceptable.
Both were remanded in custody to be sentenced in three weeks time.
