O.J. SIMPSON SET FOR COURT RETURN TO ARGUE CASE FOR RETRIAL

Sunday, May 12, 2013 - Imprisoned sportsman-turned-actor O.j. Simpson will take the stand in a Las

Vegas court this week (begs13May13) in a bid to convince a judge to grant him a retrial over his conviction for kidnapping and armed robbery.

The former American footballer was sentenced to nine to 33 years behind bars following his 2008 conviction for masterminding a heist on two sports memorabilia dealers' hotel room in Sin City in 2007.

He previously lost an appeal against his conviction, but filed new legal papers last year requesting a retrial over allegations he was badly represented by his former Florida-based lawyer, Yale Galanter.

Simpson, 65, will appear in Clark County District Court on Monday (13May13) for the start of a five-day hearing to argue his case, in which the Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult star is expected to take the stand to testify against his ex-legal team.
