O.J. Simpson’s Motion for New Trial Denied
The AP reports:
O.J. Simpson was denied a new trial Friday by the Nevada judge who presided over his conviction in the gunpoint robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.
Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass said challenges raised by lawyers for Simpson and co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart did not rise to the level of granting another trial.
“All of the issues have been preserved for the Nevada Supreme Court,” Glass said, acknowledging her rulings could be appealed to the state’s only appellate court.
Simpson and Stewart, who were shackled and in jail garb, did not speak during the 20-minute hearing, at which the judge also denied requests to release them on bail pending sentencing Dec. 5.
