OJ co-defendant gets bail before new Vegas trial

A Nevada judge set bail at $150,000 for a former O.J. Simpson co-defendant facing a new trial in their 2007 robbery-kidnapping case.

Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass on Thursday declared Clarence "C.J." Stewart a flight risk because he knows what he faces if he's convicted again.

The 56-year-old Stewart appeared by video from Northern Nevada Correctional Center in Carson City.

He told The Associated Press by telephone that he wants to prove his innocence.

The Nevada Supreme Court reversed Stewart's conviction in October. It said he shouldn't have been tried together with Simpson.

Simpson and Stewart were convicted in 2008 and sent to prison for an armed confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas casino-hotel.
