Better Late than Never … Judge Rules OJ Simpson Will Stand Trial in Las Vegas Alleged Memorabilia Heist
If your client is vile, then he must stand trial.
OJ Simpson will stand trial in the Vegas memorabilia heist. None of the charges in the 12-count complaint against the three defendants were dropped. Twelve years after being acquitted for double murder O.J. Simpson will head back to court in another attempt to avoid jail.
LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson must face trial on kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges stemming from an alleged sports memorabilia heist, a justice of the peace ruled Wednesday.
Justice of the Peace Joe M. Bonaventure ruled after a preliminary hearing of the charges and arguments against the case by attorneys for Simpson and co-defendants Clarence “C.J.” Stewart and Charles “Charlie” Ehrlich.
OJ Simpson attorney, Yale Galanter called the witnesses a group of “nefarious” characters. If that is the case Attorney Galanter, why was your client in their company? Water seeks its own level. If your client is vile, then he must stand trial.
O.J. Simpson Ordered to Stand Trial on kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges stemming from a suspected sports memorabilia heist.
A defense lawyer contended that the case was based on the accounts of “crackheads and groupies and pimps and purveyors of stolen merchandise and gun carriers and con artists and crooks.”
“These guys are bad. The court can’t ascribe any credibility to what came out of their mouths,” said attorney John Moran Jr., who represents Ehrlich.
“Every witness up there was looking to sell testimony and make money off of this case,” Moran said.
