Prosecutor: Prody to Plead Guilty to Drug Charges
A prosecutor says an ex-girlfriend of O.J. Simpson plans to plead guilty to stealing pain medication while working as an in-home nursing assistant.
Clay County Assistant Attorney Jenny Samarzja says Christie Prody plans to enter guilty pleas to second-degree burglary and drug possession.
The 37-year-old Prody is accused of stealing prescription pills on two occasions from the home of a Moorhead couple, who had installed a surveillance camera after medication went missing.
Prody is a Minnesota native who had a 13-year relationship with Simpson after the NFL Hall of Famer was acquitted in the 1994 slaying of his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles.
The Forum says a jury trial scheduled for next week has been canceled and a plea hearing is set for Sept. 13. Prody's public defender did not immediately return a call for comment.
