View Full Version : To OJ From Court: Stick Around A While.

05-09-2009, 02:54 PM
The Nevada Supreme Court denied O.J. Simpson's request Friday to be let out of prison pending the appeal of his conviction in a gunpoint heist in a Las Vegas hotel room.

A three-judge panel that heard oral arguments Aug. 3 concluded Simpson and convicted co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart didn't meet what the court called the "heavy burden" required to be allowed to post bail.

Simpson and Stewart were convicted of kidnapping and robbing two sports memorabilia dealers in September 2007.

Simpson lawyer Malcolm LaVergne in Las Vegas said he was disappointed with the ruling and had not yet been able to notify the former NFL star of the decision.
