O.J. Simpson is headed back to trial again. After four days of jury section and several hundred prospective jurors, a panel was seated late yesterday for Simpson’s Las Vegas trial. Nine women and three men were selected to hear the case, which is scheduled to go to trial on Monday.
Simpson is being tried with co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart. Both face a series of charges including robbery and kidnapping. If found guilty, they could get life in prison.
The charges are the result of an alleged raid on two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel, last September.
The jury pool began with 500 people on Monday. Besides the 12 jurors, six alternates have been selected as well. The only two African-Americans –a man and a woman — are among the alternates.
