Can OJ Simpson be charged with anything for his "If I Did It" stunt?

OJ is coming out with a book called "If I Did It," which I talked about here. He's also doing a televised "confession" telling how he did it, if he did it.

"If Simpson did end up in court, could his televised "hypothetical" confession be used against him? Yes. The fact that he's beginning every sentence with "If I did it … " might give him a little bit of wiggle room, but it doesn't grant him any kind of immunity. His hypothetical confession will still be damning if it reveals any new information about the case that only the killer could have known.

Slate's The Explainer explains under what circumstances OJ Simpson could land in court again.
