A 3-justice panel of the Nevada Supreme Court will hear arguments in the Supreme Court's Las Vegas courtroom on motions filed by Mr. Simpson and Mr. Stewart for bail pending appeal of their convictions on multiple criminal charges. The hearings are open to the public, but interested persons are urged to take advantage of the webcasts because of limited seating available in the courtroom. Neither Mr. Simpson nor Mr. Stewart will be present.
These arguments only involve the bail issue and not the appeals of their convictions. Oral arguments, if any, in the underlying appeals have not been scheduled.
In October 2008, a Clark County jury returned a verdict finding Mr. Simpson and Mr. Stewart guilty of various crimes including kidnapping, armed robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon over the taking of sports memorabelia. Mr. Simpson was sentenced to 9 to 33 years in the custody of the Nevada State Department of Corrections. Mr. Stewart was sentenced to 7½ to 29 years Although the webcast will not be archived, PODCASTS of the arguments will be posted following the arguments and archived for a period of time.
