The prelim hearing for everyone’s favorite former Heisman winner O.J Simpson and five of his good friends and co-defendants in last month’s alleged heist of two sports memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas has been scheduled for next month. Monday attorneys for both sides met with Justice of the Peace Joe Bonaventure Jr. and agreed to hold the hearings on November 8th and 9th. The District Attorney’s Office still has the option of taking the case to a grand jury. Clark County DA David Roger has not commented on what he might be doing next in regards to the case. “The Juice” and the five other men face charges of kidnapping, robbery, assault, burglary and conspiracy for the September 13th incident at the Palace Station hotel.
Two sports memorabilia collectors accuse Simpson and the five other men of stealing their merchandise. Simpson claims the items belonged to him. Two of the defendants in the case, Clarence Stewart and Walter Alexander, are scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday. Simpson himself will not appear in court until the November preliminary hearing. He remains free on bail.
