By LINDA DEUTSCHAP Special Correspondent
LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson, who went from American sports idol to celebrity-in-exile after he was acquitted of murder in 1995, was found guilty Friday of robbing two sports-memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room.
Simpson, 61, could spend the rest of his life in prison. Sentenced was set for Dec. 5.
Simpson's co-defendant, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, 54, also was found guilty on all charges and taken into custody.
Jurors made no eye contact with the defendants.
"I've sat through the trial," Glass said. "If you want a motion for new trial, send me something."
The judge instructed the jurors to put aside Simpson's earlier case.
