LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court isn't going to let
O.J. Simpson out of prison while he appeals his conviction in a
gunpoint hotel room heist.
A three-judge panel issued orders Friday concluding that Simpson
and convicted co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart didn't meet
the "heavy burden" required to be allowed to post bail.
The justices noted that a jury found Simpson and Stewart guilty
of "serious, nonprobationable, violent offenses" with firearms
They also cited a Clark County District Court judge's finding
that the men posed flight risks.
Simpson and Stewart were convicted of kidnapping and robbing two sports memorabilia dealers in September 2007 at a Las Vegas casino-hotel.
Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in prison.
Stewart is serving 7½ to 27 years.
