Tears of Joy...OJ's Goin' to Jail.

Mr. "I'm Above the Law", OJ Simpson can rot in jail Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman
NO ONE has forgotten you


FoxNews reports:

LAS VEGAS — A broken O.J. Simpson was sentenced Friday to as many as 33 years in prison for a hotel armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology and said, "It was much more than stupidity." The 61-year-old football Hall of Famer stood shackled and stone-faced as Judge Jackie Glass rattled off the punishment. Moments before, Simpson made a rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, simultaneously apologizing for the holdup as a foolish mistake and trying to justify his actions.

He choked back tears as he told her: "I didn't want to steal anything from anyone. ... I'm sorry, sorry."

Simpson said he was simply trying to retrieve sports memorabilia and other mementos, including his first wife's wedding ring, from two dealers when he stormed a Las Vegas hotel room on Sept. 13, 2007.

But the judge emphasized that it was a violent confrontation in which at least one gun was drawn, and she said someone could have been shot. She said the evidence was overwhelming, with the planning, the confrontation itself and the aftermath all recorded on audio or videotape.

Glass, a no-nonsense judge known for her tough sentences, imposed such a complex series of consecutive and concurrent sentences that even many attorneys watching the case were confused as to how much time Simpson got.

Simpson could serve up to 33 years but could be eligible for parole after nine years, according to Elana Roberto, the judge's clerk.




Lest we forget the horror he inflicted on two people and their families...

Wikipedia:

"Shortly before ten on June 12, 1994, Brown and Goldman were found fatally stabbed outside Brown's Bundy Drive condominium in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, California. Her two children, Sydney (aged 8) and Justin (aged 5), were asleep inside in an upstairs bedroom. O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson had divorced two years earlier. Evidence found and collected at the scene led police to suspect that O.J. Simpson was the murderer. Nicole had been stabbed multiple times through the throat, to the point of near decapitation; she also had a swollen face. Goldman's body was found with 'teaser' wounds on it, implying that the murderer taunted him with the knife before actually killing him."

It won't bring their beloved family members back, but maybe this helps the Goldman and Brown families just a bit. OJ's no longer at the golf course, drinking and picking up blondes.

It's about goddamned time.

Oh happy day!! I was so pleased when I saw this on the news, I nearly offered to buy the whole bar a round of drinks...well, nearly!! And it IS about GD time!!
I hope he gets everything he deserves in prison. Nevada won't be putting him in some country-club prison either. He'll do time just like every other loser in Gen Pop. Ha! Take that, you freak!
