FARGO - An ex-girlfriend of O.J. Simpson on Monday pleaded guilty to a robbery charge in Cass County District Court.

Christie Prody of Moorhead was sentenced to two years of supervised probation and a four-year suspended term after entering an Alford plea - which means she did not admit her guilty but acknowledged there is enough evidence for a jury to likely convict her.

The Class B felony robbery charges accused Prody of trying to steal a woman's purse in November at West Acres Mall, after which the two got into a fight and police were called.

Charges against Prody in Clay County District Court accusing her of stealing painkillers from an elderly couple are still pending.

Prody and Simpson met and began a 13-year relationship in 1996, after he was acquitted of killing his wife and a friend.
