OJ Simpson Robbery Case in Las Vegas is Heating Up Courtroom

OJ Simpson Was Arrested Sept. 17 2007

Have you been following the the current OJ Simpson robbery case?  If not, here is a run down of what has happened…

About a year ago, OJ Simpson and now co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart went into a sports memorabilia convention in Las Vegas and purportedly at gunpoint took Simpson memorabilia away from dealer Bruce Fromong who the claim stole the items from Simpson.

The defense criminal law attorney claims that Simpson was merely taking back what was rightfully his, while prosecutors have filed 12 counts of robbery, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and coercion against Simpson and Stewart.

Things are currently heating up in the courtroom as testimony from key witness Fromong contradicts himself on the stand, now saying that he had no intention of profiting from the confrontation at the convention, while the defense has shown on tape him stating “It’s not (expletive) over. I’ll have ‘Inside Edition’ down here for us tomorrow. I told them I want big money” and eBay listings on Fromong’s account with text promoting items as “The same ones stolen by O.J. in Las Vegas.”

The prosecution plans to bring The Goldmans, the family of Ron Goldman who was murdered in 1994 who Simpson was found not guilty of murdering him back in 1995 but found guilty in a civil case, into the mix with allegations that Simpson was trying to hide valuables in order to avoid paying them financial compensation.

Co-defendant Stewart fears that he will be dragged into a more severe punishment if found guilty due to Simpson’s notoriety. Should Simpson be found guilty of the most serious charges, he will face life in prison.

You can be sure we’ll have future updates as new information comes to light.  This case is far from over…
