DEPTFORD TWP., N.J. - March 30, 2012 (WPVI) -- A New Jersey man pleaded guilty to robbing a Deptford Township taxi driver and slashing his throat in 2010.

After the crime, James fled the scene and the driver called for help.
An off-duty paramedic was nearby and rendered first aid until an ambulance arrived.
The victim was taken to Cooper Medical Center, where he was treated and released five days later.
James was arrested a short time after the incident and with his guilty plea he could spend up to 12 years in prison.
