O.J. Simpson’s lawyers file for new trial in robbery, kidnapping case

Capture

O.J. Simpson filed an appeal of his 2007 criminal conviction to the Nevada Supreme Court Thursday.

His lawyers also fired an additional motion to add more pages to the already-lengthy appeal.

A Nevada judge upheld Simpson’s conviction last November on kidnapping, armed robbery, and other charges.

The 66-year-old former football star was found guilty of trying to rob two memorabilia dealers of items he claims are rightfully his. 

On September 13, 2007, Simpson and five men held two individuals at gunpoint and removed about $100,000 worth of trophies and other sports memorabilia from a Las Vegas hotel room.

Simpson was charged with 12 counts, including conspiracy to commit a crime, robbery, assault, and kidnapping with a deadly weapon.

Currently, Simpson would have to wait another three and a half years before he’s up for parole.
