LAS VEGAS (AP) - Lawyers say the judge who sentenced former football star O.J. Simpson to prison in Nevada wants all six convicted co-defendants to make their restitution payments to a victim.
Convicted former Simpson pal Charles Ehrlich's lawyer, John Moran Jr., said Judge Jackie Glass ended a brief Thursday restitution hearing with instructions that collectibles dealer Bruce Fromong get the $3,560 that she ruled is due to him.
Moran says the judge said Ehrlich doesn't need to make calls to officials to get the money.
Simpson, Clarence "C.J." Stewart and four men who testified against them have to pay medical bills Fromong claimed after he was pushed into a chair and robbed at gunpoint in September 2007 in a Las Vegas casino hotel room.
