Court releases O.J. Simpson on $125,000 bail
Simpson, who was acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend in 1995 in a sensational double-murder trial that left his reputation in tatters, did not enter a plea to charges of armed robbery, assault and kidnapping during a brief hearing before a Las Vegas judge.
A scrum of media and a crowd of supporters as well as protesters were on hand in Las Vegas to catch a glimpse of yesteryear's national hero, who was acquitted of killing his ex wife Nicole and her friend in a verdict that sparked out rage.
"Set the ‘Juice' loose!" yelled one supporter outside the Clark County Detention Center, referring to the football legend's sporting nickname, while another woman shouted "Justice for Nicole!"
