LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson's lawyers are telling the Nevada Supreme Court there's no risk he'll disappear or endanger the community if he's freed from prison pending his appeal in an armed
hotel room heist.

In addition, in documents submitted Monday to the state's only appellate court, one of the two memorabilia dealers robbed in the September 2007 encounter says he wants charges against Simpson dropped.

Alfred Beardsley swears under oath that Simpson didn't give him his NFL Hall of Fame ring or promise him anything to change his story in the case.

A three-member panel of justices plans oral arguments Aug. 3 on Simpson's request to post unspecified bond while his appeal is considered.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years for his conviction in the case.
