Nevada Supreme Court Denies O.J. Simpson Rehearing

By  | 

The Nevada Supreme Court today denied O.J. Simpson a rehearing of the appeal of the former football star's armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.

The decision by the three-judge panel comes after Clark County District Attorney David Roger said in a recent filing that the court should deny the request because Simpson had a fair and legal trial.

The court last fall upheld Simpson's 2008 conviction stemming from a gunpoint robbery in a Las Vegas hotel room.

Simpson's lawyers claim Simpson lacked the necessary intent to commit a crime, that the last two black prospective jurors were dismissed without proper cause, and that jurors weren't completely screened for bias.
