FROM THIS EPISODE

News helicopters followed OJ Simpson’s car today, this time through the streets of Las Vegas.  He was released on bond after three nights in jail. Simpson is charged with kidnapping and armed robbery for trying to recover sports memorabilia he says belongs to him. Tonight: was it a setup? Are the charges fair?  Will Simpson be tried for these crimes or the ones he was acquitted of 12 years ago?

Main Topic It's OJ, All Over Again

Former football star OJ Simpson has been acquitted of murder and convicted of wrongful death. Now he’s charged with ten felony counts, including kidnapping and murder. Reporters who covered the first two trials and lawyers who rode the case to fame on TV showed up in Las Vegas today to see Simpson released on bail for $125,000 dollars.  It was a circus atmosphere including Marcia Clark, the prosecutor who failed to convict Simpson of killing his wife and her friend, Ron Goldman.  Clark was covering the story today for “Entertainment Tonight.”
