Bondsman to O.J.: I'm Not Going to Jail for You!

1/12/2008 6:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Miguel Pereira, O.J. Simpson's bail bondsman, tells TMZ he turned over the cell phone message that got O.J. thrown back in jail because he wasn't "going to get involved in illegal activity for him."


Pereira tells us he didn't listen to the voicemail right away -- he thought it was just another long O.J. message. Instead, he was tipped to its contents by an investigator who wouldn't identify himself. When Pereira went to one of O.J.'s attorneys, Gabriel Grasso, to tell him about the voicemail, Pereira says he was told not to worry about it.

When the investigator contacted him a second time to tell him about photos he had of O.J. in the Bahamas over the holidays -- a violation of his bail -- it was then that Pereira listened to the voicemail carefully and contacted the D.A.

KVVU in Las Vegas shot video of Simpson and Pereira when they landed in Las Vegas. A judge will decide on Wednesday whether or not to revoke O.J.'s bail. If revoked, he could remain in jail until his trial starts on April 7.

Bravo Rusty Vain! LOL

I bet OJ's going to be really pissed now. How many years has it been, but he's finally going to get some of that karma back his way.

I hope he rots in jail, and someone finally takes him OUT! They'll take care of him in jail alright, and no one will shed one tear.

You have got to be joking!! He will be out and on a plane by Monday the latest. He is O.J. Simpson as Nicole told the police on the phone in one of her 911 calls when he beat the crap out of her!! Because he is "o.j.". she said he can get away with anything. She didn't know at the time it meant her own death.

Come on by Wednesday night he'll be back in Florida. Thank God it isn't California because unless he was a woman he be in jail forever. i.e. Michelle Rodriguez out in only 18 days of 180 days.
