O.J. Simpson faces 6 years to life at sentencing

By KEN RITTER, Associated Press Writer 1 hr 34 mins ago

LAS VEGAS O.J. Simpson is going to prison; the question is for how long.

The 61-year-old former football star who walked away a free man after a celebrated murder trial was due to learn Friday how much time he'll spend in a Nevada state prison for a botched attempt to recover sports mementoes and personal items from two collectibles peddlers.

Neither Simpson, who was acquitted of the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife and her friend in Los Angeles, nor his co-defendant and former golfing buddy, Clarence "C.J. Stewart, testified at trial. They were convicted Oct. 3 of 12 criminal charges, including kidnapping and armed robbery, and face mandatory prison time a minimum of six years and up to life.

"Best-case scenario we're hoping for is six years. That's the bottom-end number before being eligible for parole," Bryson said.

1. OJ's Lawyer was quoted:
"Your honor, please take mercy on my client. He hasn't killed anyone in years"





(ok not really a quote)

2. Reminds me of another story..
school kids were touring a courtroom, and the lawyer escorting them was explaining all about the layout.. and when he got to the tables, a kid asked who sat where.. he said "so and so sits there, and the lawyers sith there..and that chair? that's where the guilty guy sits".. Supposedly that's a true story, but I cannot remember which talking head lawyer on tv told it :)

I am soooo sick of hearing about OJ.. I almost hope they give him the minimum, so we won;t have to keep hearing about him
