MOORHEAD, Minn. - An ex-girlfriend of O.J. Simpson wants to have her criminal case transferred to drug court in Minnesota.
Thirty-seven-year-old Christie Prody was set to plead guilty Thursday to burglary and drug possession. Instead, the plea hearing was continued until early October to allow time for a drug court evaluation.
If the case is accepted for drug court, Prody could begin chemical dependency treatment even before entering her guilty pleas.
The Forum reports Assistant Clay County Attorney Jenny Samarzja didn't object.
Prody is accused of stealing prescription pills on two occasions from a Moorhead couple while working as an in-home nursing assistant.
Prody 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.
