O.J. Simpson appears cuffed in Las Vegas courtroom seeking new trial

LAS VEGAS - O.J. Simpson arrived in a courtroom this morning in wrist shackles and dressed in a blue jail suit seeking a new trial in his 2008 sports memorabilia robbery and kidnapping conviction that sent him to prison.

Several of his family members were seated in the Clark County courtroom of District Court Judge Linda Maria Bell. A bailiff told the crowd to refrain from calling out to Simpson or making contact with him.

Looking grayer and heavier, Simpson had his handcuffs removed before the proceeding began.

Simpson, 65, who is serving nine to 33 years in prison, is expected to testify Wednesday, which would be his first court statements in the case that led to his arrest. He still maintains that he didn’t know that two of the five men with him that night at the Palace Station hotel brought guns, according to The Associated Press.

Simpson says his trial attorney, Yale Galanter, never told him that the prosecutors had offered a plea bargain. He also said in a sworn statement that the same lawyer “advised me that I was within my legal rights” to attempt the memorabilia sting that led to the arrest.

Simpson will be 70 before being eligible for parole.

Heavier? One look at his photo and you don't see a man flying through airports but a balloon in the Macy's parade. Did he get fat! You're a bad man, OJ!

"He still maintains that he didn’t know that two of the five men with him that night at the Palace Station hotel brought guns, according to The Associated Press."

And he still maintains he didn't know who killed Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman. Karma Orenthal. Stay where you belong, in prison.
