Judge refuses to overturn OJ Simpson convictions


The Nevada Supreme Court refused today to overturn O.J. Simpson's armed robbery and kidnapping convictions stemming from a gunpoint Las Vegas hotel room heist.

The court ordered the conviction of Simpson's co-defendant "C.J." Stewart to be reversed and a new trial held.

The 63-year-old Simpson is serving nine to 33 years at a state prison. His co-defendant, Stewart, is serving 7-and-a-half to 27 years.

Both were convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery, conspiracy and other crimes for what Simpson maintained was an attempt to retrieve family photos and mementoes.
