Mistrial Request Denied for OJ Simpson Armed Robbery Case
Last month, OJ Simpson and Clarence Stewart were found guilty on multiple charges of armed robbery and kidnapping. Brent Bryson, the pair’s criminal defense lawyer, attempted on Friday to have the case declared a mistrial and begin a new one. Bryson claims that the jury foreman, Paul Connelly, was guilty of misconduct, as Connelly was dismissed from a job for making racial slurs and reportedly told reporters on the scene that Simpson “should have gotten life in prison” for Nicole Brown’s murder.
The judge for the case denied the motion, and reminded the defense attorney that they were aware of Connelly’s past before the case began.
Simpson and Stewart currently face begin sentenced to prison for life. They are currently scheduled for a sentencing hearing in December.
