OJ Simpson's Attorneys Get More Time For Appeal Of Robbery Conviction

The Nevada Supreme Court has agreed to give attorneys representing former football star O.J. Simpson more time to try to overturn his armed robbery and kidnapping conviction.

The court refused last month to overturn Simpson's 2008 conviction stemming from a gunpoint heist in a Las Vegas hotel room. Justices rejected a claim that prospective jurors were dismissed because they were black.

The deadline to ask for a new hearing was Monday, but attorneys Malcom LaVergne and Yale Galanter asked for seven more days to seek a rehearing. The court gave them until Nov. 16.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years at a state prison in Lovelock, 90 miles northeast of Reno. His legal team says the remote location makes communicating with their client difficult.
