Do you think that OJs's sentence is fair?
I don't know whether he was innocent or guilty on the first event. This one he was guilty. I am convinced that this sentence reflects the news over the years, the constant harrassing by the families and his own behaviour over the years since the first trial.
I understand his frustration trying to retrieve his own memorabilia, but he should never have had a gun in the process.
He got away with two murders; no sentence will be enough.
I thought he looked more sorry for getting caught than for what he did.
I agree Jim, it doesn't appear he was tried and sentenced solely on this case alone.
I think he got too long of a sentence for what they were actually trying him for, but I think they were also trying him for Nicole Simpson.
The judge has to go by the sentencing guidelines for the crime. Who know what was going the mind of the jury, the judge or anyone else at such a time?
kidnapping and armed robbery carries a stiff penalty, these are very serious crimes. and CB is right there are guidelines and the judge has to follow the guide lines, but sounds like he gave him the max on both counts. Which he deserves because he thinks he can commit crimes and it means nothing, he isn't answerable for them.
Maybe they will start making new commercials with him, running through prisons because it Hertz.
Sorry but I haven't been watching it what WAS his sentence?
Wasn't the range like 7 years to life?
OJ lives in Miami, FL just around the corner from my Wife's Aunt & Uncle. They have seen him on many occasions in the neighborhood and say he acts like he can do anything he wants to do with no penalty.
Guess his address will change for a few years now. No matter the original sentence, he will be eligible for parole in about 9 years, the problem then is that nobody wants to be the parole board that let OJ out of prison.
I wouldn't have any idea what the penalty is in that state. But I do know the judge is bound by whatever the law in that state says about the penalty, if he did something outrageous they could fight it and OJ would eventually get out of it, with a much lesser, hardly nothing, prison stay.
He will only need to serve 10% before becoming eligible for parole anyway.
I think he deserves whatever he gets, and then some. It's past time his crimes caught up with him.
Your wife's aunt/uncle must live down the street from me, as I too live (or lived) down the street from him.
OJ will be a hero in the slammer.
Perhaps you meant SHERO... I understand high profile folks like OJ get undesired attention in the slammer because they upset the natural balance of power. For the powerful to remain in power, they must being OJ types under their control. Prison politics...
He kept trying to give excuses at his trial, saying "It was just a disagreement among friends" or something like that. People there said he was not remorseful and did not admit it was wrong.
