SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The house that O.J. Simpson bought for his mother is heading for the auction block.

The sheriff's department has posted a notice announcing plans to sell the two-story home at a public auction on Nov. 30.

The house is in O.J. Simpson's name and is being sold to help pay off a judgment he owes to the guardianship of his two children, according to the sheriff's notice.

Simpson bought the house for his mother, Eunice Simpson, 79, in the late 1970s when he was playing football for the San Francisco 49ers.

On Wednesday, no one answered the door. Two cars blocked the driveway.

Experts value the house at about $300,000.

Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 slaying of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman. A civil jury later found him responsible for the deaths and awarded the victims' families $33.5 million in damages.

Calls made by The Associated Press to the office of Eunice Simpson's attorney, Leroy Taft, went unanswered.
