LAS VEGAS — O.J. Simpson arrived in a courtroom Monday morning in wrist shackles and dressed in a blue jail suit seeking a new trial in his 2008 sports memorabilia robbery and kidnapping conviction that sent him to prison.

Several of his family members were seated in the Clark County courtroom of District Court Judge Linda Maria Bell. A bailiff told the crowd to refrain from calling out to Simpson or making contact with him.

Looking grayer and heavier, Simpson had his handcuffs removed before the proceeding began.

Simpson, 65, who is serving nine to 33 years in prison, is expected to testify Wednesday, which would be his first court statements in the case that led to his arrest. He still maintains that he didn’t know that two of the five men with him that night at the Palace Station hotel brought guns, according to the Associated Press.
