LAS VEGAS (AP) -- O.J. Simpson is back in a Las Vegas courtroom, waiting to hear whether he and two others should face criminal charges for allegedly storming a hotel room and robbing two sports memorabilia dealers at gunpoint.
Today, defense lawyers are expected to try to undercut the testimony of Tom Riccio, a California collectibles broker. He said yesterday that he set up the meeting at which Simpson and the others, including two men with guns, burst into a hotel room and carried off hundreds of sports-related items Simpson said were his.
Riccio captured the hotel-room confrontation on a digital recorder. In the recording -- played for the judge yesterday -- people could be heard screaming profanities and threats at the two dealers.
