Just Like Old Times ... O.J.'s Back in Court

9/19/2007 11:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a scene reminiscent of 1995, a tired looking O.J. Simpson-- in a full prison jumpsuit, handcuffs and shackles oh my!-- walked into a Clark County Courthouse for his first appearance on burglary, robbery, kidnapping, conspiracy and assault with a deadly weapon charges.

Longtime attorney Yale Galanter is by his side, along with attorney Gabriel Grasso.



Ironically, former prosecutor Marcia Clark is in the courtroom, covering the proceedings for "ET." O.J.'s girlfriend Christine Prody, his sister Mattie and his daughter Arnelle are also in the courtroom.

O.J. said very little, answering "yes" when asked if he'd seen the charges and understood them and advising the judge that he lived in Miami, Florida.

O.J. judge: Click to watchThe prosecution announced that the two sides have agreed to allow Simpson to post $125,000 cash in bail, provided he surrender his passport (but can travel freely in the U.S.) and have no contact with any witnesses, alleged victims or co-defendants in the case. We're told it could take 12 hours to spring the Juice.

A status hearing has been set for the week of October 22.

The hearing lasted 10 minutes.

Why is that ugly skank Marcia Clark in the courtroom? Is this the only way she makes her money - off OJ? I couldn't stand her in the 90s courtroom drama and I hope to God she's not involved with this one too. He'll get off for sure! Go back home Marcia.

Marcia working for ET. well if that doesnt say it all.
ET, the same ones who facilitated howrd k. stern's claim that hes an innocent man.
Full circle, and cementing her reputation as a planter of evidence and a lying willing person who does whatever it takes to get their way.

way to go marcia dark.

here we go again, the problem is that we have such instant media- You know Marcia Clark is salvating from her mouth that Simpson is in trouble, and not because she wants justice, but because she and all the other players from ten years ago can cash in with their shows and books, (ie-$$$$$$) In only a couple months that creepy looking judge will get his fame and fortune, perhaps he can can afford a haircut- looks like a drunk Indian! Can someone please kill O.J.

Maybe, just maybe he will have a jury with balls, and send him where he deserves to be for the rest of his life, who gives a damn if "he was framed" on THIS one, karma baby, karma!!!!

Oh, OJ, OJ, OJ you thought you were untouchable didn't you? Well look at your sorry a$s now!!! just praying the Las Vegas PD did a better job than the LAPD did in collecting and keeping evidence. It would be another miscarriage of justice if this bastard walks free again ...

funny how corporate America just loved O. J. and avoided James Brown-he was deemed not workable and hostile towards society. James Brown is having the last laugh!! Marcia Clark is in heaven- more publicity and fame and ratingw and $$$! The judge will also get his fame and stature in months to com-HOW SAD society and the press have become

Thanks Ronelle. This case is not about race............it is about crime and justice.

Let's keep the focus on crime and not make this black and white like the murder trial.
Murder is a crime no matter what color your skin.

I DON'T THINK ANY OF THE CHARGES ARE GOING TO STICK, IF ANY DO IT WILL BE THE ONES THAT ARE DROPPED TO LOWER CHARGES AND HE WILL BE SET FREE ON PROBATION AND WITH A SLAP ON THA HAND AGAIN. JUDGES THESE DAYS ARE AFFRAID OF THE MEDIA, THEY ARE AFFRAID OF OJ. THEY KNOW THAT AT SOME POINT HE WILL PLAY THE RACE CARD AND THATS BAD PUBLICITY. WE ALL KNOW AS WELL AS THE JUDGES THAT LAS VEGAS IS VERY DILIGENT ON KEEPING UP ON THERE APPEARANCE. THATS WHY THEIR LOGO IS WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS STAYS IN VEGAS.
THIS GUY IS NOT GOING TO JAIL FOR ANY LONG PERIOD OF TIME SO LETS NOT GET OUR HEARTS SET ON IT.
