O.J. Simpson Expected to Testify to Try to Wrangle New Trial

Blames current imprisonment on bad legal advice


O.J. Simpson is expected to take the stand Wednesday in his effort to get a new trial on robbery, assault and kidnapping charges from 2007.

"He didn't testify in the first trial and he wants to tell his story. He's anxious about it," attorney Osmaldo Fumo said Tuesday, the first day of the hearing in Las Vegas.

Simpson, who is serving a 33-year prison term, argued in court papers that bad legal advice led to his arrest and conviction in a 2007 confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers.
