O.J. Simpson’s Appeal Bid Shot Down by Nevada Supreme Court

Disgraced former football star had claimed that his trial attorney mishandled the case

O.J. Simpson will not be receiving a new trial anytime soon.

A Nevada Supreme Court panel has denied the disgraced former football player’s request for an appeal of his 2008 conviction on robbery and kidnapping charges.

Simpson had claimed that his legal representation in the trial mishandled the case on multiple fronts and had a conflict of interest, but in an order handed down Thursday, the panel agreed with a lower court’s decision in the case.

“We conclude that the district court did not err in denying this claim,” the panel found.

Simpson was found guilty of robbing a pair of sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in Las Vegas.

Simpson, who was handed a sentence of nine to 33 years, has been denied appeal in the past, and filed this most recent appeal bed last October, the Associated Press reports.
