2. WOW
REALLY?

How does that compare to other people found guilty of the same offense with no prior convictions?

3. Well it was several counts and apparently the judge is having him
serve consecutively.

Otherwise I have no clue.

4. I hate to say it
because I am not a fan of OJ and I *think* he was guilty before, however, he was not found guilty in that case and should not be punished for it this time, he should be punished for the crime he was found guilty of.

By not doing so, it just opened up an avenue for appeal for his lawyers.

5. I am in complete agreement
And I guess it is only 15 years. The first report I heard was 21.

6. CNN is reporting 15, parole-eligible after 9.
A Las Vegas judge sentenced fallen gridiron great O.J. Simpson to at least 15 years in prison for leading an armed confrontation last year at a Las Vegas hotel room over sports memorabilia. Simpson could become eligible for parole in about nine years. Grimacing, Simpson was escorted from the courtroom in shackles.

Judge Jackie Glass gave Simpson a tongue-lashing before passing sentence.

10. I am sure there will be somone to take over all of OJ's tee times.
The really sad thing is that OJ will no longer be able to search for the "real killer".

12. LOL
Now I was not in Brentwood that night, but I am pretty sure that every time OJ was on the golf course looking for the "real killer", the real killer was at that very same golf course. What are the odds of that???
