Authorities: OJ Simpson's ex-girlfriend didn't report for burglary, drug possession sentence

Authorities say O.J. Simpson's former girlfriend has failed to report for a 34-day jail sentence on charges of felony burglary and drug possession in a Minnesota case.

The Forum reports (http://bit.ly/17zPUcj ) that 38-year-old Christie Prody pleaded guilty in May to stealing painkillers from an elderly couple in Moorhead, Minn., while working as an in-home care assistant.

On Friday, Clay County Judge Steven Cahill denied Prody's request to wait until after the weekend to begin serving her sentence because her mother had to work and Prody had no one to care for her 2-year-old daughter.

Clay County jail officials confirmed Monday morning that Prody was not in their custody.

Prody and Simpson began dating in 1996 after he was acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles.
