Footballs, jerseys and other O.J. Simpson memorabilia used as evidence in the former NFL star's armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas are now in a Santa Monica courthouse awaiting a sale, according to a lawyer for Fred Goldman.
The items are to be sold to satisfy part of the $33.5-million civil judgment against Simpson in the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole, and Goldman's son, Ron, the lawyer said.
A spokesman for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department said the agency had received one box of memorabilia.
A Las Vegas jury convicted Simpson in October of a host of felonies stemming from an encounter with memorabilia dealers in a casino hotel room in 2007. Simpson, 61, is serving a sentence of nine to 33 years in a northern Nevada prison.
The men believed they were meeting a potential buyer, but instead Simpson and a group of associates, some armed, confronted the two dealers and seized the memorabilia.
