Court Rejects New Hearing For O.J. Simpson

The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected O.J. Simpson’s request to rehear his case in the 2007 robbery of items from sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.  In a one sentence decision, the high court simply said, quote, “rehearing denied.”  Defense attorneys claimed there were a number of errors made during the original trial, including the dismissal of two potential African-American witnesses and a lack of evidence for Simpson’s kidnaping conviction.  The 64-year-old Simpson was convicted on 11 counts and is spending a nine to 33-year sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center.   The high court had overturned the conviction of Simpson’s co-defendant, Clarence Stewart.  He was placed on three years probation and nine months of home detention as part of a plea agreement.
