No New Trial for You

O.J. is SOL in NV, at least for now:

Disgraced athlete O.J. Simpson on Tuesday was denied a new trial on his 2008 convictions for robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas, which sent him to prison for up to 33 years.

Clark County District Judge Linda Marie Bell ruled that for now, the 66-year-old will have to remain behind bars. Simpson, who will be 70 before he is eligible for parole, had sought a new trial, claiming incompetent legal counsel.

"We’re obviously very disappointed in the judge’s decision," said Osvaldo Fumo, one of Simpson’s attorneys. "We plan to appeal the case."

Ten cents says he will SOL there, too.
