O.J. Simpson to Stand Trial

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ O.J. Simpson says he's not surprised a judge has ordered him to stand trial on charges stemming from an alleged robbery of sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel in September.

He faces kidnapping, armed robbery and other charges.

As he left a Las Vegas courtroom yesterday, Simpson said: "This is what we expected.'' He says his only disappointment is that there was no jury there, adding, "As always, I rely on the jury system.''

Simpson's attorney says the former football star was trying only to reclaim family heirlooms and that he believed no crime was committed. The attorney rejected the idea of a plea agreement.

Two co-defendants were also ordered to stand trial.

    Of course he wants a jury so he can some how manipulate them into thinking he is not guilty!
