Jury selection enters third day for O.J. Simpson robbery/kidnap trial

10 September 2008

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- O.J. Simpson appeared to be in good spirits this morning as he arrived for the third day of jury selection for his upcoming criminal trial.

He and his former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, face a dozen kidnapping, robbery and weapons-related charges stemming from the alleged raid of two memorabilia dealers' Palace Station hotel room last fall.

Simpson smiled and waved to the small collection of fans who greeted him as he and his lawyers made their way from a black SUV into the court.

The former NFL star did not respond to questions from the media as he entered the Regional Justice Center.

Judge Jackie Glass briefly stopped proceedings at one point this morning after two potential jurors were contacted last night by a man who claimed to be a journalist. Potential juror No. 194 and prospective juror No. 177 assured Glass that the man didn't influence them.

Glass has excused 21 possible jurors and retained 12 other possible jurors this week.
