On August 3 the Nevada Supreme Court panel will hear oral arguments on O.J. Simpson’s bid to get out of Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada, pending his appeal to overturn a conviction in an armed Palace Station hotel room heist in Las Vegas.
A three-member panel of Nevada’s only appellate court will hear 30 minutes of arguments in Las Vegas from Simpson’s lawyers seeking his release on bond and prosecutors opposing the request. Simpson will not be there.
Simpson, 61, was convicted of kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon in the gunpoint robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in September 2007. He is serving nine to 33 years in prison.
His 55-year-old co-defendant, Clarence “C.J.” Stewart, is serving 7 ½ to 27 years at Northern Nevada Correctional Center for his role in the case.
The judge panel also scheduled a separate oral bond hearing for Stewart, who was seeking to also overturn his conviction.
