Court considers releasing O.J. Simpson

A trio of Nevada Supreme Court justices is considering whether to let O.J. Simpson and a former golfing buddy out of prison while the full court reviews their convictions for a gunpoint hotel room heist. Justice Michael Cherry didn't say at the end of a hearing Monday how long it will take for the three-member panel to rule on whether the former football star and convicted co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart should be allowed to post bond.

Simpson and Stewart weren't in the courtroom, but their lawyers say they deserve to go free while they work to prove that they were denied a fair trial.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger argued that a jury had spoken, and the two men should continue to serve their sentences for kidnapping and armed robbery.
