World Celebrates as O.J. Simpson Gets 15 Years in Jail

by at . Comments

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology, saying, "It was much more than stupidity."

Simpson was convicted on October 3 of 12 criminal counts, including armed robbery, kidnapping and burglary after he and some buddies broke into a Nevada hotel room, attempting to recover his allegedly stolen sports memorabilia.

The 61-year-old Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer stood both shackled and stone-faced as Judge Jackie Glass read the punishment.

A rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, in which he was simultaneously apologizing for the holdup as a foolish mistake and trying to justify his actions, ended with O.J. Simpson choking back tears. And earned him zero sympathy.

The judge emphasized that it was a violent confrontation in which at least one gun was drawn, and someone could have been shot. She said the evidence was overwhelming, with the planning, confrontation and aftermath all on tape.

Hard to argue with that.

JUICE NO LONGER LOOSE! At long, long last, O.J. Simpson is headed for the long prison stint he so richly deserves and worked so tirelessly to attain.

The judge said several times that her sentence in the Vegas robbery case had absolutely nothing to do with O.J. Simpson's controversial acquittal in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

Simpson was immediately led away to prison after the judge refused to permit him to go free on bail while he appeals. His co-defendant and former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J." Stewart, also was sentenced to at least 15 years.

The Juice could be paroled after as little as nine years. Maybe Christie Prody will even be there when he gets out. True love always waits.

Well, aren't you a lovely bunch? The first comment and the one above mine are absolutely disgusting and you should feel ashamed! I think he did deserve it but does not deserve to be called the N word. 1488 you are a sick and disgusting person.

JUSTICE, albeit it 13-years too late! Although O.J.'s incarceration will not bring back his two murdered victims, Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, hopefully both families will now have a semblance of closure. And I hope Simpson spends several miserable years in prison before an inmate slashes his throat and stabs him numerous times and he bleeds to death on a cold cement floor. He deserves NO MERCY or sympathy for his horrendous behavior. The only thing he was sorry for in court today was that he was finally caught. Rot in hell, O.J.

I am caucasion and totally insulted by the language in the previous post.Whether you agree or disagree with the 1995 acquittal, that was what the jury decided. O J Simpson has now been tried and convicted of these other charges and yes he is going to jail. I do believe this sentence is a carryover from his non conviction in murder trial thus I am not rejoicing. He will be incarcerated for a very long time and hopefully what the previous commentor had to say does not happen. I wish you well Mr. Simpson and hope you are successful on appeal.
