It seems very clear that OJ went there to take back what belonged to him. That clears him of robbery, as he wasn't taking someone elses belongings there. He never says anything like "give me you wallet" or "give me all your money". You can clearly hear one guy saying to OJ that "Mike took it" and OJ responds, "I know Mike took it", so even the guy with the goods is admitting to OJ that he knows the stuff belongs to OJ. Since OJ did not have a gun, he is also not going to face any weapons charges. I'm not sure who, if anyone actually had a gun, but it wasn't OJ. He was told by a friend that these guys had his stuff. A meeting was set up and the real thieves were expecting a collector to show up. They didn't know who it was going to be, but they were obviously there waiting for someone to come and buy the stuff, so it seems to me that OJ was invited to come in the room as an anonymous collector. So I don't see how he could be charged with any kind of breaking and entering or burglery charges. It also is very strange that the guy who set this whole thing up was carrying the tape recorder of what I just listened to. What was his ral motive for getting OJ in that room? Was he hoping to make some money from the tape, or maybe someone else set this up that has so far remained behind the scenes? Some of these people have connections to the Goldman family, if nothing else, testified for them in the civil trial. What an interesting coincidense that they turn up involved in a case of OJ's memorabilia being stolen. Hmmmm....

To Joseph Johnson - If you think the fact that OJ did not actually have the weapon will clear him of a weapons charge, you are ill advised. The fact that he did not actually hold a weapon in his hand does not mean he will not face the same armed robbery charge as everyone else. We see it all the time in the streets - one suspect has the gun, one is the looking and one makes the demands. When they get caught - all are charged with armed robbery since they all knew there was a weapon being used in the commission of the crime. As far as your theory that since his wallet wasn't asked for it does not constitute a robbery? Please, the commands given by people telling the complaintants to get over there or get against the wall makes this what is commonly known as a takeover robbery. Even from just this brief segment of tape it seems to suggest that OJ (assuming that is his voice we heard) has implicated himself in the middle of a takeover robbery, though I do not hear any mention of a weapon at this point. As for OJ, too bad for him Johnnie Cochran is no longer there for him. I wonder if he was wearing gloves...

It is a robbery, because the stuff that USED TO BE O.J.'s doesn't belong to him anymore, they belong to the Goldmans. In essence he was robbing from the Goldmans, even if someone else was the stewards of that property (legally or illegally). It's the same thing as stealing property that was stolen to begin with. Verdict: Guilty as Charged.

This comment is not true he the goldmans have to file a motion to assertain this property, though they did they have to request it individualy and the judge has yet to rule so at time of insadent it still belonged to O.J. Simpson. you should learn a little bit about the subject bef you add a comment.

ok i have a problem with this whole thing i mean how can he get charged with stealing when the property belonged to him. two how can he be charged with breaking and entering when he was invited , and i did not hear anything in the recording about any weapon gun knife or otherwise. the property is still oj's until he turns it over himself to the goldmans if he chooses to do so or he could auction it off to help pay towards what is owed the goldmans.

OJ IS GOING TO GO DOWN FOR THIS. EVEN IF THE STUFF WAS HIS ORIGINALLY, HES GOING TO GO DOWN. FOR HOW LONG....I'M GUESSING AT LEAST A YEAR. BY THE WAY WHEN THE KILLINGS WERE DONE IN LA OJ SAT AND WATCHED THE KILLINGS. BEING HELD BY MAFIA TYPES WHILE HIS WIFE AND RON GOLDMAN WERE MURDERED. ALL THIS BECAUSE HE WAS INTO A MAJOR GAMBLING DEBT AND WOULD NOT PAY IT. SO THEY KILLED HIS WIFE AND RON GOLDMAN WAS AT THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME. HE COULDN'T TELL ANYONE BECAUSE THE WOULD HAVE GONE AFTER HIS KIDS NEXT....

I hate to biurst so many bubbles, but the OJ memorabilia do NOT "belong" to O.J. The Goldmans were awarded all rights to those things years ago, and will probably now claim them and sell them to the same people who today are making excuses for him. By all means don't confuse these apologists with facts!

I can't believe that anyone still tries to defend Simpson. It would be interesting to know how you became so gullible.

I think the whole world needs to realize that we live in a country with a justice system.Flawed or not the man was aquitted of murder point blank.I feel as if Fred Goldman is a leech trying to get rich off his sons death.Which is wrong and maybe he was the one who set OJ up this time the truth will come out.Look at the facts he has never made a charity in his sons name or anything he uses the monies he recieves for his own personal gain and that you all is low I dont care what you say its low.Fred Goldman needs to understand hes not God and never will be so he needs to watch how he casts all these stones.

Do you have the list of items that were awarded to the Goldman's in their civil case? Not everything that OJ owned was awarded to them. For instance, I don't think the clothes he needs to wear are a part of that claim. I know he owns a house in Florida that is not a apart of the claim. He has his pension which is not a part of the claim. So unless every last stolen item in that room was named in the judgment, it still belongs to OJ.

OJ was invited to buy these items. No robbery took place. He believed the items were all his, you can hear as much in the tape recording. Now if other people in the room had other intentions, OJ was not in on those intentions. Sounds like a setup to me. All these people just happened to be in Vegas with OJ memorabilia at the same time as OJ? If you have a tape of OJ asking his friends to bring guns, then ok, I'll be right there with you on throwing him in jail. But you don't have those facts or any other facts yet, so you are prejudging OJ. Hopefully, none of you will ever be on a jury.

By the way, how come no one is saying anything about the guys whole stole the items? Whether those items belonged to OJ or the Goldman's, why aren't you asking for them to be thrown in jail too? It seems to be you should be really ticked off at them for having property that belonged to the Goldman's and screaming that they be thrown in jail for 30 years. But apparently, you don't care about the Goldman's as much as you pretend to care.
Maybe OJ wanted to get those items back so he could turn them over to the Goldman's. No, I don't believe that, but hey, it's based on as much fact as the rest of this speculation being thrown around here.

RELY to joe johnson.... you have no idea what you are talking about. first off all it does not matter what a person is stealing in an armed robbery. second, if oj did not have a gun it has little barring on his charges (he was an accessory to an armed robbery) which in Nevada carries very harsh punishment. third, on tape, oj says the words " dont let anyone leave here" which leaves him guilty of kidnapping or wrongful detainment. fourth, it is not unlikely for individuals dealing in art or collectibles to record transactions. do some research and find out how many digital recording devices where sold in the united states last year. you are turning it into a race thing.... get some common sense. put the race card back in your pocket and take some classes on criminal law before you interject your idiot thoughts into a civil discussion. a picture says a thousand words... so does a tape. pwned

The only problem I have with the whole thing is this....some how it seems to me all are missing a point here. If someone were in a motel room trying to sell something that I know belongs to me, why not call the police department and have them go in for you to retrieve it? They do that and it is all legal. Can't just go and strong arm someone in that manner and not expect to face charges. A search warrant and a few officers would not have left OJ with egg on his face.....
