Shocker! Judge Says O.J.'s a Flight Risk

9/17/2007 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

O.J. Simpson has been deemed a flight risk by a Nevada judge, and thus he's on a "no bail" hold, says a "media judge" appointed to his criminal case. Wonder how they got that idea?

What's more,he'll have to see a judge within 72 hours of his arrest -- by Wednesday morning. No bail request has been made by the judge, said Clark County, Nev., media judge Nancy Oesterle at a press conference just moments ago, but Judge Ann Zimmerman will determine what bail will be, if any, on Wednesday morning. If the D.A. fails to turn in an official complaint by then, O.J. could walk away a free man.

Oesterle also said that she believes that certain members of the media will be allowed into the meeting, and helpfully pointed out that if O.J. can't afford an attorney, the court will appoint one for him.

By the way, forget #32, The Juice's new number, as in booking number, is 2648927. Wonder if that'll fit on the back of an NFL jersey.

Look folks don't go celebrating too early. OJ is not going to jail for life. He is being tried for THIS crime, not the murders. I'm willing to bet that even the armed robbery of your own items won't get him more that 5 years. Calm down. I don't want you guys rioting if he gets off too light.

Deelicious, I have to disagree with you. I WATCHED the trial. I didn't read about it. Even when I watched the news they gave inaccurate information about the trial that I had just watched. It was not crystal clear that he did it. I know you guys like to pretend racism doesn't exist, but it does and Furman was a proven racist. As black people we know that the police will do ANYTHING to nail a person for a crime if they get it in their mind that person did it. They can make those assumptions based on hunch and no evidence and then the going about "finding" the evidence. No one should be shocked how often that happens now that DNA is getting people freed after years in prison.

Anyway, I wouldn't put it past OJ, but I just don't know if he did it.

GOD works in mysterious ways "His wonders to Behold"

Legally, I hope he gets the 30 years that is available, when convicted!
One way or the other, you cannot laugh in the face of GOD! He has, and now he will pay!

Any educated person (regardless of color) knows Mr. Simpson murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Mr. Ronald Goldman. If the Los Angelus District Attorney's office and the lead detectives did their job better than he might be in prison right now. And a lot of blame goes to the racist jury that found him not guilty. I am sick and tired of people saying "White America" is out to get Simpson. I am a black man and I truly hope these new charges stick and he spends the rest of his life behind bars.

finallyjustice,

Concerning justice in the U.S., it's always about color. Unfortunately, one black person got off when hundreds of whites who have killed or harmed black people have been set free even till this day. You guys make it about color.

David in LA, what do you mean educated people know he did it? The only people who know he did it are the witnesses. Are you implying that every educated person in America saw the crime committed? Otherwise what the hell does education have to do with it. And stop lying, you are not black. If you were you wouldn't need to announce it.
