The Nevada Supreme Court Friday upheld former football player O.J. Simpson's convictions for kidnapping with a deadly weapon and other charges in his 2008 Las Vegas armed robbery trial, but ordered a new trial for co-defendant Clarence Stewart.
Attorneys for disgraced gridiron great O.J. Simpson return to court Friday, arguing that the judge at his 2008 armed robbery trial in Las Vegas did not adequately guard against the looming shadow of his notorious past.
On Oct. 3, 2008, a jury sitting before a Las Vegas district court convicted a man who many believe got away with murder exactly 13 years before. The man, of course, was O.J. Simpson, who was convicted on all 12 counts of armed robbery and kidnapping stemming from a poorly-planed, poorly-executed and unmistakably illegal attempt to seize possession of sports memorabilia from a room at Las Vegas' Palace Station hotel.
Jury questionnaires released Saturday revealed five of the jurors in O.J. Simpson's Las Vegas, Nevada, robbery trial said they disagreed with the 1995 verdict where he was found not guilty of two murders.
Potential jurors in O.J. Simpson's robbery and kidnapping trial were under the microscope Tuesday as jury selection continued, with at least one saying she believed that the former professional football player was guilty of murder, despite his acquittal in a 1995 trial.
The following is the sequence of events on the night of June 12, 1994 and early morning hours of June 13, based on the testimony of witnesses. O.J. Simpson has said he was at his Brentwood home waiting for a limousine at the time the victims were fatally stabbed. All times are Pacific Time.
With O.J. Simpson looking on from the defense table, a sports memorabilia dealer testified Thursday that the former football star helped lead a September "military-style invasion" of a Las Vegas hotel room.
O.J. Simpson was arrested Sunday and ordered to be held without bail in connection with an alleged armed robbery involving sports memorabilia that took place Thursday night in a Las Vegas hotel, according to police in the gaming capital.
The victim of an alleged armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel says former NFL star O.J. Simpson was involved, but police are still investigating and no arrests have been made, a police spokesman said Friday.
A literary agent for the family of stabbing victim Ronald Goldman has made a deal to repackage and publish O.J. Simpson's canceled "If I Did It" book about the slayings of Goldman and Simpson's ex-wife, a spokesman for the agent said Monday
A federal bankruptcy judge Monday awarded 90 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the rights to O.J. Simpson's book "If I Did It" to the family of Ron Goldman, who was slain alongside Simpson's wife Nicole Brown Simpson in 1994.
In what may be an unprecedented legal move, Fred Goldman is asking to have control over O.J. Simpson's publicity rights to his own likeness, name and persona to satisfy a multimillion-dollar wrongful death judgment.
