The jury in the O.J. Simpson-Clarence Stewart kidnapping and armed robbery trial will begin deliberating tomorrow at 8:30 am.

Prosecutor Chris Owens told the nine women and three men
In his closing arguments the "offense is against the peace and dignity of the state of Nevada."

Owens called Simpson arrogant and said he was motivated by spite and anger.

Owens said there was plenty of evidence to find both defendants guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of the crimes allegedly committed during a memorabilia sting at a Palace Station Casino hotel room.

Simpson's attorney Yale Galanter painted a picture of his client being targeted by money hunting liars and police out to get him.

Galanter stressed Simpson just wanted family heirlooms back.

Galanter asked, "Does anyone truly believe that O.J. Really had the intent to commit a crime?"

Stewart attorney Brent Bryson told the jurors there are lots of (prosecution) smoke screens and innuendo, but no proof his client committed a crime.
