Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell Denies OJ Simpson’s New Trail & Upholds His 2008 Conviction on Kidnapping & Armed Robbery
OJ SIMPSON DENIED … IT’S TRUE, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, STAYS IN VEGAS AND SO DOES OJ IN PRISON!!!
Clark County, Nevada District Judge Linda Marie Bell has denied O.J. Simpson’s appeal for a new trial. In upholding his 2008 conviction for kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges the judge said that Simpson was denied on “All grounds in the petition lack merit.” Simpson’s “non-dream” legal team’s had asked for a new trial on 22 specific grounds related to his trial and appeal. However, Judge Linda Marie Bell’s 101 page, point-by-point-by-point ruling denied the “Juice” as she stated, “Given the overwhelming amount of evidence, neither the errors in this case, nor the errors collectively, cause this court to question the validity of Mr. Simpson’s conviction.”
A judge in Las Vegas rejected O.J. Simpson’s bid for a new trial on Tuesday, dashing the former football star’s bid for freedom based on the claim that his original lawyer botched his armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas more than five years ago.
“All grounds in the petition lack merit and, consequently, are denied,” Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell said.
Simpson lawyer Patricia Palm said she wanted to speak to Simpson before commenting on the decision. Ozzie Fumo, her co-counsel in the effort, said he expected they would appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court.

OJ Simpson is currently serving 9 to 33 years on his 2008 conviction of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges in the 2007 Las Vegas incident where Simpson and others were arrested in bizarre Vegas memorabilia heist. Karma baby!
Look for O J and his defense team to appeal this decision in federal court next. As reported at the Las Vegas Sun, Simpson’s attorney Ozzie Fumo said, “This is just the first step and we are going to Nevada Supreme Court and Mr. Simpson will be vindicated when this is done. We’re not giving up this fight and it’s not over.” Note to O J defense team, its over!
Isn’t it amazing how some of these folks just cannot seem to go gentle into that good night and have to put themselves in the media light. Even serving time and being irrelevant, this narcissist still gets PR. Interestingly enough, Dana Pretzer on Scared Monkeys radio was discussing this phenomenon with Dr. Clint VanZandt of those like O J Simpson and George Zimmerman just cannot seem to go away.
