O.J.

Takes a Stab at a Mistrial

11/8/2008 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


O.J. SimpsonO.J. and co-defendant Clarence Stewart were denied any hope of a new trial on Friday, and they will continue to face multiple kidnapping and armed robbery convictions.

Defense lawyer Brent Bryson claimed the juror foreman, Paul Connelly, was guilty of misconduct after it was discovered that he was dismissed from a previous job for alleged racial slurs. Connelly also allegedly told reporters after the conviction he thought O.J. "should have gotten life in prison" for the murder of Nicole Simpson.

The judge made it clear that defense attorneys "were not under any illusions" about Connelly's beliefs prior to the trial as she denied the motion.

Simpson and Stewart currently face possible life sentences.

I don't think even B.O. would be stupid enough to pardon him. That would be insane- This crime was a felony committed with a gun.

To #11 (my cookie), the problem is that the first jury did not do their job. That jury was so enamored by OJ that they didn't do their duty. He should have been convicted of those murders. I watched that entire trial and the evidence was overwhelming for a guilty verdict. So blame the first jury for not doing their job. In this trial, he was also guilty. And these jurors were smart enough to see it. I guess the slick is finally coming off the juice and he's going to get what he should have got. Prison baby!

Only a sociopath guily as Hell in the slaughter of two innocent young people would be bold enough to try another felony crime.  O.J. didn't  have the sense to quit while he was ahead.To the misinformed person who said Obama would pardon him - WHAT?  That is the caziest thing I've heard in a very long time.
