LAS VEGAS — oj-new-trialWearing a blue prison uniform, O.J. Simpson testified Wednesday that his former attorney advised he could use some force to reclaim personal items from sports memorabilia dealers as long as he didn’t trespass.

Simpson took the witness stand in a Las Vegas courtroom in an effort to get a new trial on the robbery, assault and kidnapping charges he was convicted of in 2008. He insists that his attorney in that case, Yale Galanter, didn’t adequately represent him.

Simpson said he trusted Galanter’s advice on how to get the items back. The items, he believed, were stolen, and he wanted to give them to his children someday.

“The overall advice that he gave me is that you have a right to get your stuff. He gave me an example that if you’re walking the street and you see your laptop in a car, you can use force to break the window of the car,” Simpson told the court.
