This afternoon, OJ Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in jail. With the possibility of parole after 9 years. He will reportedly spend that time in protective custody due to his celebrity. OJ Simpson spoke before being sentenced. His last words? “I’m sorry… I was just trying get my stuff back.”more..
Last night OJ Simpson was found guilty of all 12 charges against him in the Las Vegas robbery case. The jury consisting of nine women and three men, determined that OJ was responsible for planning and helping to carry out a plot to retrieve, at gun point, personal items he lost to a pair of sports memorabilia dealers.
OJ Simpson’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, said OJ’s guilt hadn’t been proven and that the case took on a life of its own because he was involved. In a statement to the jury, Galanter said, “Every cooperator, every person who had a gun, every person who had an ulterior motive, every person who signed a book deal, every person who got paid money - the police, the district attorney’s office, is only interested in one thing: Mr. Simpson.”more..
The internet’s tagline should be there are no secrets. No matter what the situation, if scandalous details exist they will turn up on this web of ours. Had the Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murders happened today, there would be cellphone clips snapped just before their death. That last gasp of life being a thumb on the email send button.. “You’ve got mail!”
As if you don’t know.. OJ busts into a Las Vegas hotel room to get back sports memorabilia he says was stolen from him. Apparently OJ knows the guy and apparently isn’t denying that he had his stuff. When interviewed by police on Friday, OJ asked them, “I’m O.J. Simpson. How am I going to think that I’m going to rob somebody and get away with it?”
His thing seems to be that he wanted his stuff back and had to get rough to do it.
After looking at the evidence OJ was arrested on Sunday and is currently being held without bail.more..
