O.J. Simpson status check

Posted: 07:57 AM ET

LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Monday's status check in the O.J. Simpson case was a short proceeding, but attorneys are still working behind closed doors on a number of things - including going over the 500 completed questionnaires by prospective jurors.

O.J. Simpson and co-defendant C.J. Stewart

Co-defendant C. J. Stewart attended today's hearing, which was a bit of a surprise since the defendant's attendance is not required. Stewart's attorney, Robert Lucherini, asked the court for a continuance and a stay of the upcoming trial, but both motions were denied by Judge Jackie Glass. This rulings clear the way procedurally for the Nevada Supreme Court to act on Stewart's filing. He wants the Supreme Court to ultimately sever his case away from Simpson's.

The trial begins September 8 here in Las Vegas.

This has nothing to do with the murder case.

It is about a man who wants what he wants, when he wants it . He will go after it by an means at all.
He has been charged in Florida road road rage. He has had his daughter calling 911. His girlfriend "friend" fell and was in the hospital. He has been charged with stealing cable for crying out loud.

He went to that hotel to get HIS stuff. These are items that should have gone to the Goldmans in their judgement against him.
Why is he not being charged with hiding assets along with trying to steal them back at gunpoint.

He has gotten nothing but a slap on the wrist for all the above crimes and those are only the ones we know about.
You can say he blew a golden life but he didn't. He still lives the life of a multimillionaire.
I can only pray that the prosecution has enough evidence to finally convict him of this crime.

We can all only hope he will finally be sent where he needs to be. As Mr. Goldman once said, (not his exact quote): OJ needs to have a cell 3 ft x 3 ft wide and 6 ft high with a window at eye level looking out on a beautiful golf course !!!!

This trail has no merit at all. The only person in the courtroom with any credibility is the court reporter. Whatever the outcome guilty or innocent will be meaningless.

He should have been in jail years ago. I cannot BELIEVE he's still getting away with this garbage. Had it occured to a regular person, we probably would not have been heard of after convicted.

He needs to be locked up and never see the light of day again.

He is an interesting figure in the rogue's gallery of life. We can all look at his accomplishments and downfalls and then at our own lives to keep them in check. He's just a man like anyone else and has to fac the music.. We can all stand tall and say we are fighting the good fight if we see this and keep our wits to persevere...rockin' on.
