Las Vegas - Thursday 18th September 2008

* MOCK-UP OF HOTEL ROOM BUILT FOR O.J. TRIAL The site of O.J. SIMPSON's alleged hotel heist is to be recreated in the basement of Clark County Court in Nevada, where the former sports star is on trial for kidnapping and armed robbery. To save the judge and jury in the case from a trip to the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas, where Simpson and five associates allegedly burst in on sports memorabilia dealer Bruce Fromong and a business partner and demanded the return of stolen goods while wielding guns, the suite is coming to them. Skilled crime scene reconstruction workers have built an exact replica of the room in the courthouse's basement, so that jury members can get a feel of what happened last September (07) shortly before Simpson and his posse were arrested. Simpson and an associate, Charles Stewart, face life imprisonment if they're convicted. Both have pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping and armed robbery.
