Seven members of the 12-person jury agreed to the extraordinary news conference two nights after the verdict was announced because they said they were being hounded by reporters. They answered questions for an hour in the same courtroom where Simpson and Clarence “C.J.” Stewart were convicted of robbing two memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a hotel room.
The jury listened repeatedly to recordings made by collectibles dealer Thomas Riccio – the host of the hotel confrontation, who was granted immunity – and felt they heard things that had not been fully transcribed by police, juror Michelle Lyons said.
I am very surprised that this trial has not gotten much more publicity due to the cast of characters. I smell a long hard prison sentence for O.J. Even though he will have the best attorneys fighting these charges, his not guilty verdicts in the Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murders, possibly will taint any jury who is presiding over this case.
Plus the only attorney who could properly fight these charges Johnny Cochran, passed away a couple of years ago.
Capone N Noreaga got the run down below:
O.J. Simpson’s only remaining co-defendant made a last-ditch pitch Wednesday to persuade a judge to postpone the start of their armed robbery and kidnapping trial.
A lawyer for Clarence “C.J.” Stewart filed a motion asking Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass for a delay of the September 8 trial until the Nevada Supreme Court considers his request for a separate trial.
