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.

CONSIDERATE STRANGER    

WHY IS IT, THAT IT ALWAYS TURNS INTO A RACIST THING? WHY IS IT THAT AL SHARPTON, JESSE JACKSON, AND OTHER AFRICAN AMERICANS ALWAYS SCREAMIN RACIST?????

INSTEAD OF SCREAMING RACIST WHY DONT YOU FOCUS ON GETTING PRAYER BACK IN SCHOOL, OR TEACHING DISCIPLINE TO THE YOUNG CHILDREN BEFORE THEY TURN OF AGE TO SHOOT EACH OTHER.

YOU KNOW WHAT, OJ IS A MURDER, HE WAS A JELOUS MURDERER. AND HE HAS A VIOLENT TEMPER.

FURTHER, THE PRISON POPULATION BY FAR IS MADE UP OF AFRICAN AMERICANS, THE MURDERS IN THE USA, IS MOSTLY YOUNG BLACK AFRICAN AMERICANS.

WHY DO YOU SEE COLORS AL SHARPTON, OR JESSE JACKSON??? WHY?

OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON FREEDOM, CHRISTIANITY, AND DISCIPLINE....... WHY DONT YOU JOIN THE FIGHT FOR ALL OF THAT? INSTED OF MAKING THIS INTO A RACIST ISSUE.

ALL THAT MAKES ME SICK!

BTW I AM AN AFRICAN AMERICAN, MY CHILDREN GO TO THE FINEST OF SCHOOLS, I HAVE 2 MASTERS DEGREES, SO PLEASE DONT TRY AND TELL ME "POOR BLACK MAN" , OR OUR YOUTH IS DISCRIMANTED ON.................. WE LIVE IN THE USA, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR RACSISM, AND IF YOU CANNOT LIVE BY WHET THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED UPON, LEAVE..................PACK IT UP AND GET OUT! AND QUIT MAKING THINGS INTO A RACIST WAR!

Wow this is a first! Your guilty because we want to believe you killed 2 people even though you were found not guilty! This smacks of a set-up to get OJ and the past case back in the limelight... Gee who could profit from that? GOLDMAN The book was released last week and OJ told about his things being sold at the same time, too much of a coinsidence. From what I have heard on the TV and read in papers and online I don't see the "he is guilty and should fry" as clear as some seem to. Thanks to the media and how they report the news no one is innocent until they prove they are and then they are still guilty because the talking heads don't want to admit they were wrong... So much for our constitution!

Wan't the civil judgement based on the "probability" that O J had something to do with the deaths of Ron Goldman and Nicole Smith - at least 50% ? Sure would like to have the actual facts of civil judgements in California explained in clear language.

The fact that he was acquited in the criminal trial means that he has not been convicted of any criminal wrongdoing , doesn't it? Easily provoked civil cases do have a wide open door in California law. Maybe that's why bankruptcy laws also offer protection to those who no longer have enough money to cover their debts.

Let's really face it.....white people judged him guilty before the trial started. Black people knew that his treatment by the press was a trashing no white man would have gotten.

Why not get the LA Justice System to open this unsolved murder case? Put a strong thinker, a detail oriented and experienced investigator on it. Let a fresher brain scan the files for underappreciated information. Try a woman, LA. We are a lot smarter than men and much less defensive in our work approach. Maybe there is something there just waiting to be found.

Give the African American (black) brother a break. Can't you tell he's been down on his
luck looking for the real killers. Next you'll have Rev. Al standing next to O.J. holding hands
with Jesse Jackson, and the local NAACP behind them for a photo op.

For all of you who are talking "riot", I am assuming you are refrerring to the Rodney King verdict that spawned riots.

Do you not remember who was doing the rioting? And where they rioted?

The stupid idiots burned down their own neighborhoods. Now just how much sense did that make?

Racism at its worst. Yes, OJ was found innocent following the death of his wife. Its the Law. Why are people condeming him before he is even tried. That is ODD. I thought americans follow the rule of law. Why such hatred? Because he , the black man killed a white woman? I believe he was vindicated and found to be innocent. Please do it the American way, "Innocent till proven guilty". Please let us be civilized and let the law prevail. Peace to everybody. Let us forgive, love each other AND generate peace. Hatred will only creat hatred.

I knew this guy would get in trouble again sooner or later. Sociopaths cannot stand to be forgotten and they always think they won't get caught. I say no bail, put him away before he actually kills someone again.

in some ways I'd like to see him having to use a public defender and not a high priced lawyer or "dream team"

a public defender is probably what most Americans have to rely on because of their finances

no high priced experts would be called in to contradict the obvious truth as they did during his previous trial

and they wouldn't want to drag the court case out forever due to their calendars being so over booked

let's hope that JUDGE ITO isn't living in Nevada
we need a judge who will actually have control in his courtroom
