OJ Simpson just doesn’t go away, even though we thought that he had been “put away” last year after his Las Vegas felony assault with a deadly weapon during a robbery involving a gun.
Now, awaiting appeal in that case, OJ Simpson is requesting bail. Ken Ritter of the Associated Press reports:
“Simpson recognizes that he has a heavy burden in demonstrating that his release will pose no danger to the community and that he is not a flight risk,” attorneys Yale Galanter and Malcolm LaVergne said in a follow-up document filed Monday with the state’s only appellate court. “Simpson will strictly adhere to whatever conditions this court sets for bond.”
The Nevada State Supreme Court will hold a bail hearing on August 3.
