Notorious former athlete an actor OJ Simpson.
Today in a Las Vegas court seeking a new trial for his 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.
OJ -- the court in handcuffs a little heavier and a lot grayer than he was when a jury convicted him of robbing two sports collectors.
You may were called OJ Simpson claimed he was simply trying to retrieve his own stolen property or get back my stuff as he put it.
And that he did not know an accomplice had a gun.
He's serving nine to 33 years in prison.
OJ Simpson's attorney argues the former NFL star should get a new trial claiming his attorney in the original one was incompetent.
Of course -- OJ's best known for his stunning acquittal in the 1995.
Trial of the century as they called it then.
In which a jury found him not guilty of killing his ex wife and her friend.
Trace Gallagher and it shows -- -- tonight -- when when is OJ expected to testify.
Well as looking like Wednesday's show but this hearing is actually moving faster than expected so OJ could take the stand as early as tomorrow of course OJ has not testified since back in 1996 during his civil case and as we all know.
That didn't go very well but one of his former defense attorneys Gabe Grasso testified today that he plot.
For OJ to testify five years ago and OJ wanted to testify listen.
And was hell yes.
In addition I.
The distinct feeling that OJ -- testified.
That was our only shot.
Time that we had.
Progressive says the lead attorney Yale Galanter said that he would not testify so he didn't.
But OJ certainly will take the stand -- -- -- and OJ says that his attorney gave him some bad advice what was that.
A couple of big things one he says the Yale Galanter told him that it was legal for him to actually go to that casino and take back his memorabilia as long as he did not trespass.
Or use physical force -- -- Galanter denies that he ever said that.
-- OJ also claims that -- never told them about a plea deal being offered by the prosecution.
Today one of his former attorney said there was in fact a plea deal but that Galanter said no still legal experts say for OJ.
This hearing is a long shot listen.
I think he did a very good job for OJ I actually think that.
You know the audiotapes of the video.
Was very difficult to defend against.
I don't fight I think that Galanter is a credible man I think he's professional what he does.
I think OJ on the other hand obviously.
Is reaching for straws because it's it's his only shot.
Yet the hearing could last for the remainder of the week should have been a judge may not rule for several weeks after that.
Shut -- this is the second time OJ Simpson's tried to get his case retried and win his freedom.
In 2010 he launched an appeal but the Nevada Supreme Court denied the motion and send it right back to prison.
