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.

Party 'till you die!    

Ooooh Noooo! If he's arrested, how is he going to find Nicole's killer's on the golf courses! The words Criminal Psychopath comes to mind! If he's convicted, there will still be idiots out there saying that he has never done a bad thing in his life!

Seriously, this guy should be in a CAGE. He is an animal just like Mike Tyson. They both deserve to be caged like animals.

When you watch the video, you get the feeling that OJ considers this a total lark. He really DOESN'T think rules apply to him. I hope the judge keeps his punk ass in jail until the trial. The trial doesn't start until April.

The murderer should never have left Cali. Nevada is going to string him up starting Wednesday. All the black people are going to go around saying he is being set up just like last time...lol.

Anyone else notice how cops never wear their seatbelts as required by law...

He may get off again. The case is comprised of a bunch of jerks who either sold their story or got deals with the prosecutor.
