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.

Yep. I agree with #45. I wouldn't get too excited because there may be a lot of people eating crow. I wouldn't hang my hat on THESE witnesses. The recording is all but useless due to state law and the fact that it's a tampering argument's dream. If there ever was a beatable case, it's this one. I do think O.J. is an idiot who feels he is above the law but I honestly don't believe this will be the case that imprisons him (for a lenghty term anyway)

HUMANE DOG PERSON    

I think it's VERY telling that Simpson's lawyer tells the bail guy "NOT TO WORRY ABOUT IT" They're all just as guilty as the guys they represent sometimes. Leave it to Simpson to find another unethical attorney. That's something he seems to be very lucky doing, or are there SO MANY of them, it's not luck but actually the norm?? WE WANT SIMPSON in jail for as long as possible - if nothing else just to spend some more time to think about what he' did and got away with. Please let's hope justice will finally prevail, even if it's not for his WORST crime. He is despicable. Hey murder trial jury - how do you like your hero now? Did he ever spend another day with "HIS" people once they freed the killer? Nope just went right back to his old ways. Hopefully they understand what a terrible mistake they made. Or maybe they just don't give a damn either. Let this SOB rot in jail.

Good riddanence OJ. It's a shame society had to put up with a murderer on the streets for 13 years. With any luck you won't last 13 days in a federal maximum security prison.

did you notice that he could not swagger in his usual manner? perhaps because he had his hands locked togethet in a praying position, to bad he doesn't remember this from childhood. I am sure his Mother taught it to him. lets hope he begans to pray soon for forgiveness and his soul.

Yeah!!!!! Yeah!!!! The murderer is finally realisng that he is not above the law. Pebbles62 you need to take your blinders off, anyone with half a brain could see past racial grandstanding at his trial to see the whole truth of what happened to two innocent people. SLAUGHTERED!!!! I hope Nicole and Ron are looking down and take some comfort that his life is becoming a hell. The only pity I have is for his children, they have had to live with a narcasitic physcopath for too many yeasrs.
