- O.J. Simpson was so confident that he was going to beat the rap again that he had an acquittal party planned, it was learned.
Simpson associate Thomas Riccio, after an in-studio interview Friday with radio talk-show host Anthony Crivello and retired Las Vegas police detective Phil Ramos, invited them to join O.J.'s entourage at an undisclosed location.
"That's how certain he was," Crivello said during an interview on Saturday, a day after Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart were found guilty on all counts, including armed robbery and kidnapping with a deadly weapon.
"He's been predicting a hung jury," said Ramos, who attended the trial and provided expert commentary on Crivello's show, "The Sicilians" on Fox Sports Radio KBAD-AM, 920.
Clarke was the same gossiper who reported last week that Simpson, who resides in Florida, was thinking about staying in Vegas. As in, like, taking up a permanent residence in the Sin City. Clarke wrote:
- One of my spies heard him say, "I've already told my kids, if it were my choice, I'd like to move to Las Vegas."
