Judge Linda Marie Bell
A judge in Las Vegas rejected O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on Tuesday, dashing the former football star’s bid for freedom.
Former football star O.J. Simpson pleaded for leniency Thursday morning when he appeared via video conference before a two member parole panel.
More than four years after the world last heard from O.J. Simpson in court, one of the nation’s most famous prisoners who also happens to be a former South Florida resident, spoke again Wednesday in a bid to win freedom from a sentence that could keep him behind bars until he dies.
One of South Florida’s most notorious residents, OJ Simpson, is expected back in a Las Vegas courtroom Tuesday where the work of his former lawyer is expected to again draw withering criticism.
Currently serving a prison sentence of more than 30 years, O.J. Simpson is back in court seeking a new trial.
