This time – O.J. wasn’t so lucky.
The Hall of Famer was found guilty today in Las Vegas of an armed robbery that took place back on September 13th. The jury deliberated for 13 hours after a 13-day trial. The 61-year-old was convicted of the following: kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges. The incident in question took place when Simpson stormed a room at a hotel-casino in Vegas and took sports mementos from two collectors.
Both Simpson, and his co-defendant, Clarence “C.J.” Stewart. They could spend the rest of their lives in prison. Kidnapping is punishable by five years to life in prison. Armed robbery carries a sentence of at least two years behind bars and could bring as much as 30. Simpson and Stewart were taken to the Clark County jail, he’ll be there until at least December 5th, when he and Stewart are scheduled to be sentenced.
Some will say it’s justice for the murders he got off on in 1995. It seems that Simpson has found trouble ever since, and it finally caught up with him. As they say – what goes around – comes around, and for Simpson, the law finally caught up with him in a big way, and it may cost him life in prision.
