clarence20stewart 385 Sentencing Due For Co Defendant In Simpson Case

O.J. Simpson’s former co-defendant is due for sentencing in the plea deal he took to avoid a retrial in their 2007 Las Vegas armed robbery and kidnapping case.

Clarence “C.J.” Stewart is expected to get nine months’ house arrest and an additional amount of time on probation during sentencing today before Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass. It’ll be up to the judge how long Stewart’s probation will be. The 56-year-old former Simpson golfing buddy pleaded an equivalent of no contest Jan. 4 to felony robbery and conspiracy. 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.
