O.J. Simpson was sentenced to 15 years in prison for robbing sports memorabilia at gunpoint more than a year ago in Las Vegas. The AP reports:
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.”
Simpson stood stone-faced Friday when Judge Jackie Glass quickly rattled off his punishment after he pleaded with her that he didn’t mean to steal from anybody when he tried to retrieve memorabilia.
He appeared ready to break down in tears as he told that he was “sorry and confused” before going into a rambling and emotional 5-minute declaration.
So now that he’s finally going to jail for many, many years, I can’t help but think that it’s funny the reason he got jailed is because of robbing some stupid sports memorabilia and not because he was found guilty of murder. Anyway, that’s a pretty long time so O.J. will be hard-pressed to keep that smirk on his face.
