LAS VEGAS (AP) - O.J. Simpson says an ambitious Nevada prosecutor is pressing a kidnapping and armed robbery case against him that he says even the alleged victims don't want to pursue.

"If I was anybody else, I wouldn't be going to court," Simpson told a reporter for Fargo, N.D., radio station KFGO who interviewed him late Tuesday at a Fargo cigar bar. Simpson was vacationing in eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.

"How many trials have you ever heard of where both of the victims say they don't want this guy to go to jail, they don't want to go to court, and you still go to court?" Simpson asked. "It's only me.

Somebody needs to gently explain to Mr. Simpson that some types of crime, (there is a latin phrase description that escapes me,) to describe a type of behaviour that is going to be prosecuted regardless of the wishes of the victim.

Kidnapping and armed robbery? Good luck.

“Anybody else wouldn’t be going to court”

Anybody else would be doing life or on death row.

Right - what precisely, is OJ vacationing from? I mean, it’s not like he has anything like a job.

Can you believe this guys has set of friends that he golfs & travels with regularly and surely has more than one dumb-ass female seeking his celebrity?

I just finished the Goldman's OJ book.

What a disgusting human...

Well, if you’re looking to stick out in a crowd.....be a famous black person in a Fargo bar.

I’ve always said that......

I admire the prosecutors ambition.

“”How many trials have you ever heard of where both of the victims say they don’t want this guy to go to jail, they don’t want to go to court, and you still go to court?” Simpson asked. “It’s only me.””

Thisisn’t a civil case. It’s a criminal case. THe victims itnentions are utterly meaningless; if he broke the law, he has to pay the price.

Reading the story, the first thing that came to mind was Bear Kurleenbear on his Harley, being chased by LEOs in one of the Dakotas.

He raises a good point. Technically neither Ron Goldman nor Nicole Brown said they wanted him to go to jail.

I'm guessing it would depend on any and type of felony conviction(s) OJ might have.

Beyond that, I'll further guess that they'd let him in for a while if he claims to be a "refugee".
