O.J. Simpson Wants Out Of Prison
May 10, 2013
O.J. Simpson wants out of the clank.
He hopes to achieve an early exit with a new trial after his 2008 conviction for bursting into a $35-a-night Las Vegas hotel room and stealing signed photos of himself and other sports memorabilia.
The former NFL star who was cleared of killing his ex-wife and her friend in 1995 says his lawyer Yale Galanter screwed up the armed robbery case that resulted in a 33-year prison sentence, the Associated Press reported Friday.
Simpson, who's now 65, will argue to a Vegas judge next week that Galanter gave him terrible legal advice and failed to inform him of a plea offer that would have gotten him out in two years.
Galanter also told Simpson it was totally legal for him to "retrieve" sports memorabilia he believed was stolen from him, according to the former NFL player.
"I fully disclosed my plan to Yale Galanter," Simpson said in a sworn statement, "and he advised me that I was within my legal rights."
Simpson gained infamy in the 1990s, when his televised trial for allegedly killing his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman captivated America. His 1995 acquittal stunned a lot of lawyers, and people are still obsessed with the murder case. A book even came out recently speculating Simpson's son was actually the killer.
Fred Goldman, the father of the man Simpson allegedly killed, said at the time that he was "thrilled" that he was finally being put behind bars, according to the AP.

People in hell want ice water too, but...
Well then, he knows how it feels to want.
In the old days, he'd be one of them by now.
I want a flying car with room for my pony,
on the grounds that his lawyer botched his case.
Thats pretty lame, when the only complaint you can muster in your defense is YOUR lawyer is incompetent..............I guess lawyers are only competent when they get you off the hook. No problem with your defense when johnnie cockroach got you off. right you murdering POS?
No early release for murderers.
Nevada ain’t cali, thats for sure.
Let him out under the control of President Obozo.
Then, they can tour the golf courses of America trying to find the Killers of Nicole and our people killed in Benghazi.
Part of his patrol will be: ABCNNBCBS and the left wing print media will have to follow the two of them 24/7 and only report when they have solved these murders.
The DA in LA should prosecute him for lying on the stand when he made all those claims such as he didn’t own the shoes, or the glove, etc. that we now know he did.
It’s legal to get your stuff back, yes. It isn’t legal to bust doors down and hold people at gunpoint in order to do it. I’m not a lawyer, though.
O.J. in da can cuz he go wid white wimmen. He didn’t do nuthin.
To oj... Burn in hell murderer.
Any bets on whether this headline makes Taranto's "bottom story of the day" section on Best of the Web?
Hey O.J., want in one hand and sh_t in the other!!
100% of inmates in US prisons want out of prison.
