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.

"Nail his ass to the wall"! Plain and simple. That is the only way anyone ,even the Judicial System; will be able to control him. He means by God he thinks he is in control ..He has got to be "SHOWN"

Party 'till you die!    

So Pebbles, I guess the years of torture he spent on the golf courses looking for the 'real killer' is nothing compared to the torture of a knife gutting you and nearly cutting off your head after years of physical abuse! Right?

I LOVE MY 3 CHILDREN THAT I DID NOT MURDER!!    

Pebbles, you have got to be kidding... Everyone knows he was guilty of murder. Justice wasn't served. Tell me this, if he didn't do it, why hasn't he he helped like he said he would in trying to look for the real murderers???? The evidence was there, the jurors were just tired, didn't understand , and were afraid of racial riots (because thats what the black community thinks is the right thing to do,) when they found him not guilty. HE IS A MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVEN ALOT OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY THINKS SO, SO WE ARE NOT BEING RACIST.
