O.J. Simpson's appeal is denied by Nevada Supreme Court

The Nevada Supreme Court has declined to overturn O.J. Simpson's convictions for armed robbery and kidnapping, saying that his appeal was without merit.

The court, however, ordered that a new trial be held for Simpson's co-defendant, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, and reversed his conviction.

Simpson, 63, is serving a 9-to-33-year term at a Nevada prison for convictions resulting from a Las Vegas hotel room heist held at gunpoint. Stewart, is serving a 7 1/2-to-27-year term at a prison northwest of Vegas.

Good, OJ should spend at least some time for what he did even if this particular trial had nothing to do with it.

I have little sympathy for Simpson but it's clear he was convicted here for a PRIOR offense (so to speak) and that's not how the court system is supposed to operate.

How is Mr. Simpson supposed to find the real killer when he is behind bars?
