Simpson in Court: Juice to Testify in Bed to Weasel Out of Robbery Conviction
by Free Britney at May 12, 2013 7:15 am

O.J. Simpson is expected in court Monday as he asks a judge to grant him a new trial on grounds that his former attorney mishandled his case.

Nevada inmate No. 1027820, who's serving a 9-to-33-year sentence, will arrive in Clark County District Court for the start of his five-day hearing. Acquitted of murder in 1995, the NFL great was later convicted in 2008 of leading a sports memorabilia heist at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room. Simpson never testified in his 1995 murder trial or in the 2008 kidnapping/robbery case when he was convicted, but is expected to take the stand now. On what grounds? And how does he think he can win? Much of his testimony is expected to point fingers at his former attorney, Yale Galanter, who Simpson believes fumbled the handling of his case. Simpson said he told Galanter he planned to confront two sports memorabilia dealers to retrieve personal items he believed were stolen from him. "I fully disclosed my plan to [Galanter], and he advised me that I was within my legal rights," Simpson wrote, saying that his attorney knew his plans. O.J. added that Galanter told him it was acceptable as long as he did not trespass or use physical force, and that the lawyer's mistakes did not end there. Simpson also alleged in the statement that Galanter failed to tell him of a plea deal that would have gotten him two years in prison, the AP reported. "Had I understood that there was an actual chance of conviction, I would have accepted such an offer," Simpson wrote in a sworn statement. His appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court was denied in 2010. As his current sentence stands, O.J., 65, won't be eligible for parole until he is 70.
