Simpson's sentence for kidnapping and robbery in Las Vegas -- nine to 33 years -- and was known for her courtroom personality during the Simpson trial.

Glass' clerk told the Associated Press that Glass handed in her resignation on Tuesday. Glass said that she's honored to take the new gig. "I've always admired Nancy Grace and her inherent sense of justice and I'm honored to take her spot behind the podium," she said in a statement.
