Simpson" href="/topic/sports/football/o.j.-simpson-PESPT006743.topic">O.J. Simpson</a>'s trial. Riccio was the auctioneer who set up Simpson's  meeting with the memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel; he  surreptitiously taped the six-minute encounter on a digital recorder hidden atop an armoire. He later sold the clip to celebrity gossip site TMZ.com for $150,000. Riccio, who was granted immunity for cooperating with prosecutors, also taped the hours surrounding the confrontation -- including Simpson denying in phone calls afterward that he saw weapons.
