OJ In the news for all the wrong reasons

OJ Makes bail

Quote:
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) -- O.J. Simpson walked out of the Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday after paying the $125,000 bail set earlier in the day.

O.J. Simpson appears in a Las Vegas, Nevada, courtroom for a bail hearing Wednesday.
1 of 2 Simpson faces 11 charges stemming from an alleged robbery last week in a Las Vegas hotel.
Video from outside the jail shows Simpson, wearing a gray suit and white shirt, get into a car that was immediately driven away.
Simpson had to surrender his passport, but is allowed to return to his home in Miami, Florida, and travel elsewhere in the United States.
Simpson and others are accused of entering a room in the Palace Station Hotel and Casino and pointing guns at two men -- Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong -- as they took sports memorabilia, along with Fromong's cell phone and Beardsley's cap and sunglasses.
A fifth suspect, Charles Cashmore, 40, turned himself in Wednesday, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. He was one of the two men seen in a surveillance video released Tuesday by authorities.
Police are requesting the public's assistance in "identifying and locating the second suspect [in the video]."
Beardsley, 46, considered a key witness, was also arrested Wednesday. He was booked into the Clark County jail on a fugitive warrant, booking records show.
Beardsley was convicted of stalking in 2003 in California and was sentenced to two years, according to the California Department of Corrections. It's unclear how much of that sentence he served, but he was still on parole at the time of the alleged Las Vegas robbery.
During Simpson's hearing Wednesday morning, Judge Joe Bonaventure read the charges against the former football star.
Simpson was wearing a blue jail jumpsuit and handcuffs. He spoke only in direct response to Bonaventure's questions. Watch Simpson's demeanor in court
Simpson will be arraigned the week of October 22, when he will plead not guilty to the charges, defense attorney Yale Galanter said.
The judge told Simpson he must refrain from contacting any alleged victims, witnesses or co-defendants in the case.
The charges include multiple counts of first-degree kidnapping with a weapon, robbery with a weapon, burglary with a weapon, coercion and conspiracy to commit kidnapping and robbery.
The first degree kidnapping charges, which carry a possible life sentence upon conviction, were added Tuesday.
Prosecutors contend Simpson and his co-defendants -- Walter Alexander, Clarence Stewart, Michael McClinton and Cashmore -- committed kidnapping because they intended to detain the two alleged victims using a weapon.
Galanter said Tuesday his client has "a very substantial chance of being acquitted of those charges" and "under the circumstances [Simpson] is doing well."
Simpson, 60, was arrested at his hotel Sunday morning.
The items in the room where the alleged robbery took place included baseballs, plaques, a photo featuring J. Edgar Hoover and a mobile phone, a police report said.
Simpson said he entered the room with friends -- one of whom was posing as a potential buyer -- after being tipped off that some of his personal items were for sale there. He said his friends helped him carry the items from the room but said no guns were involved and denied a robbery occurred.

Police, however, said he orchestrated the incident and that the suspects had at least two guns, which authorities recovered during searches.
Beardsley told CNN's "Larry King Live" that he was contacted last month by Thomas Riccio -- a dealer and auctioneer of sports memorabilia -- who said he had a client who wanted to buy some high-end Simpson items and would pay top dollar for them. Beardsley then called Fromong, who gave him a list of items he could provide.
Meanwhile, Riccio told King he called Simpson, told him Beardsley and Fromong had the items and the two had agreed to go to the hotel room together, but that the alleged robbery was Simpson's idea.

The two planned that Riccio would be in the room and would let Simpson in, Riccio said. But he said he was shocked when Simpson showed up to the Palace Station Hotel and Casino with "two white guys and six black guys."
Riccio said he recorded an audiotape of the confrontation "because I've had problems in the past." In the recording, Simpson can be heard barking orders and profanities and repeatedly accusing someone of stealing his things.

Re: OJ In the news for all the wrong reasons

OJ + in the news = always a bad reason.

He lost the civil trial; so while is not a convicted murderer, enough evidence existed to find him liable in civil court of the killings.

He just needs to go away permanently.
