OJ Minimum of 6 years in county/state prison
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 01:21 PM by underpants
EDIT-I mixed up concurrent and consecutive. So it will be 6 years.

I couldn't keep track of the maximum

The first count was 12 months in county. The rest were in state.
I think that is right-two of the counts (#'s 7 & 8) were to be consecutive meaning that they will be served at the same time

He is currently 61 years old.

That's adequate for his crimes. This is from True TV.

6. Couldn't keep track of the concurrent and consecutive terms.
The major counts of kidnapping and robbery were 15 years minimum.

16. One thing -
Her sucking on the Slurpee straw was a bit undignified. A glass of water might have looked better.

I've never seen a judge do that, but, hey, it's Nevada.

OJ's in prison until he's 70 years old - at least.

25. I missed her blowing her nose.
When did that happen?

I think actually it (shipping her Big Gulp)showed that this judge wasn't playing to the cameras.

27. She did something that struck me as odd,
but then, anything involving OJ Simpson is going to be odd, I believe.

She made a great point of stating that her sentencing today had absolutely nothing to do with his previous trial, where he was acquitted. I never heard of anything like that before, but, as I said, OJ is strange.

She's a smart judge, tough, too.

13. Was Ron Goldman's father and/or sister there? I hope so.
Those poor people have been through hell. At least seeing his constant smirk
replaced, even momentarily, with disappointment and fear should give them a small (very
small) bit of comfort.

14. He'll have to serve
nine years before he's even eligible for parole.

He got off lucky.

He'll be 70 years old before he's up for parole.

His personal statement was offensive on so many levels. The weasel wouldn't take the stand during his trial, where he'd have been subject to cross-examination, but he tried to testify about what a great guy he was in his statement. Weasel. Coward. Scum.

Good judge, good sentence.

24. And another story says a minimum of 15
LAS VEGAS A broken O.J. Simpson has been sentenced to at least 15 years in prison for a Las Vegas hotel armed robbery by a judge who rejected his apology and said, "It was much more than stupidity."

30. maybe in prison he'll get some tips so he can find the "real killers"
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 05:32 PM by WI_DEM
The last decade of pursuing the "real killers" on golf courses across the USA hasn't really been too successful.
