O.J. Simpson denied new trial in 2008 robbery/kidnapping case
O.J. Simpson was denied a new trial on Tuesday.
In 2008, NFL Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson -- because it allegedly doesn't matter what you allegedly do off the field! -- was convicted for robbery and kidnapping and sentenced to 33 years in prison. He was attempting to get a new trial but a judge denied that request on Tuesday.
Via the Los Angeles Times, Simpson claimed legal incompetence stemming from his original conviction
"We’re obviously very disappointed in the judge’s decision," Osvaldo Fumo, one of Simpson’s attorneys, said. "We plan to appeal the case."
Simpson, 66, "won" a shot at parole back in May -- he'll be up for parole just before he turns 70 -- but remains in prison.
He was hoping that the judge in question wipe out his conviction from the 2008 Las Vegas kidnapping but the judge clearly disagreed with the notion that he didn't receive proper legal representation.
