oj385 Plea Deal for OJ Co Defendant

LAS VEGAS (AP) — One of O.J. Simpson’s former co-defendants is taking a plea deal that will free him from prison and avoid a retrial in their 2007 Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping case.

Clarence “C.J.” Stewart’s lawyer said Monday that Stewart will plead an equivalent of no contest to felony robbery and conspiracy charges.

The attorney says his 56-year-old client is expected to get nine months of house arrest and an unspecified additional term of probation.

The Nevada Supreme Court granted Stewart a new trial last October. It ruled he didn’t get a fair trial due to Simpson’s notoriety.

The state high court upheld Simpson’s conviction and nine-to-33-year prison sentence. It’s still considering Simpson’s request for a rehearing.

Simpson and Stewart were each convicted in October 2008 on multiple charges stemming from the heist of sports memorabilia items from two dealers in a room at the Palace Station hotel. Simpson’s attorneys claimed he was simply retrieving items that had previously been stolen from him.
