It’s day two in the O.J. Simpson Vegas kidnapping and robbery trial. Simpson and co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart are facing a series of charges; the result of an alleged raid on two sports memorabilia dealers in a Vegas hotel room a year ago.
Yesterday, attorneys for both sides presented opening statements and then prosecution witness Bruce Fromong took the stand. Fromong is one of the memorabilia dealers. After some hard hitting questioning Fromong, who has a history of heart attacks, became ill. The judge dismissed him for the day.
Tuesday ended with a second witness, Ismael Flores, a hotel bellman, testifying.
Somewhere between 20-to-30 witnesses are expected to be called. If convicted of the charges, both Simpson and Stewart could get life in prison.
