LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada judge who sentenced former football star O.J. Simpson to prison has scheduled a Thursday hearing on a convicted codefendant's question about restitution.
Charles Ehrlich's lawyer, John Moran Jr. said Monday he'll ask Judge Jackie Glass to determine how much the six men have paid and how much collectibles dealer Bruce Fromong is still due.
The judge decided in December that Simpson, co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart and the four men who testified against them have to pay a combined $3,560 to Fromong.
Most of the amount is for medical bills Fromong claimed after he was pushed into a chair while being robbed at gunpoint Sept. 13, 2007, in a Las Vegas casino hotel room.
Fromong said Monday he hasn't gotten any restitution yet.
