OJ Simpson Trial Postponed until September, 2008!

It's not on the record yet, but corespondent Beth Karas just reported on TruTV that a new trial date has been set for September 8th, 2008. We will bring you more updates as they happen.

Update: 10:43 am
The robbery charges and the kidnapping charges still stand.

This is very disappointing news. It means that several trials may be happening around the same time. Spector, Simpson and Entwistle. What in the world are we going to watch this summer? The only other trial that has captured our interest is the Skylar Deleon trial (the murder of Thomas and Jackie Hawkes) scheduled to start in June.

We completely agree with kathlb's sentiments:

Okay, I think it's time for an uprising! To court schedulers everywhere.....

CNN.Crime is reporting:
-- Defense lawyers say a Nevada judge has agreed to delay O.J. Simpson's trial on armed robbery and kidnapping charges to September 8.
O.J. Simpson, pictured at his November 2007 arraignment, has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Lawyers Yale Galanter for Simpson and John Moran Jr. for co-defendant John Ehrlich emerged from a meeting with District Court Judge Jackie Glass and said she agreed to give them more time to prepare for trial.

Delay, delay delay. This is a standard defense tactic in US courts.

Last time he couldn't wait to get to trial, this time he's delaying! I wonder what he is scared of? I see prison in OJ's future.
