LAS VEGAS — The judge who sentenced O.J. Simpson to prison plans to take over for Nancy Grace on the syndicated television show “Swift Justice.”

Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass, who sentenced the former football star to nine to 33 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping in 2008, submitted her resignation to Nevada’s governor on Tuesday, her clerk, Elana Roberto, told The Associated Press.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval received the letter, his spokeswoman Mary-Sarah Kinner said.

Grace said in a release from CBS Television Distribution that she’s leaving after the show’s first season because it’s relocating production to Los Angeles from Atlanta.

“Leaving such a successful show was a tough decision,” Grace said. Grace will continue to host her justice-themed cable show “Nancy Grace” on CNN’s Headline News.

Promoted with the tagline “no robe, no gavel, no prisoners,” “Swift Justice” featured Grace sorting out varied disputes submitted by viewers and fans.

Glass, a former anchor and crime reporter with experience on television and radio, is known for severe sentences and a strong personality in the courtroom.

Fired Lil Jon’s donation short, but charity still likes it

DECATUR, Ga. — When Lil Jon was fired from Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice,” the rapper-producer fell short of the amount of money he wanted to raise for his charity.

That charity thought his efforts were just enough, though. On Tuesday, he was honored by the United Methodist Children’s Home for raising $80,000. The proceeds will be placed in an endowment fund to help educational opportunities and refurbish buildings at the sprawling 99-acre campus in suburban Atlanta.

Warren held on three charges after crash

LOS ANGELES — “Planet of the Apes” actress and former model Estella Warren was arrested after a late-night crash that led to her allegedly assaulting a police officer then trying to flee from custody, officials said Tuesday.

Warren was driving when she crashed into three parked cars, police said. Someone heard the noise of the crashes, called police, then pursued Warren when it was clear she wasn’t going to stop, police said.

The person then forced Warren to stop. Police arrived and arrested Warren on suspicion of driving under the influence, but, they said, she assaulted one of the officers and was then charged with felony battery on an officer.

Police took Warren to Wilshire station, where she slipped out her handcuffs then burst through a door to the police station and briefly escaped. She was immediately recaptured and booked on a felony escape charge.
