LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- O.J. Simpson is seeking a retrial in the case that put him in the very shackles he wore in to court today.

Former district attorney David Roger took the stand in the hearing today.

Roger prosecuted Simpson for the 2007 robbery and kidnapping of two sports memorabilia dealers. Now he's in the unusual position of defending the defense.

Simpson's lawyers asked the judge on Tuesday to let the shackled former football star and actor have one hand free so he can take notes and sip water while a Nevada judge hears evidence that the 65-year-old deserves a new trial.

The judge agreed.

The hearing is aimed at proving Simpson's trial lawyer, Yale Galanter, had conflicted interests and shouldn't have handled Simpson's case.

Simpson is serving nine to 33 years in prison for his 2008 conviction in the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
