Only 13 years too late, O.J. Simpson will likely die in prison after he was sentenced to 9 to 33 years in prison today for several convictions including but not limited to robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy, and kidnapping (read Jenny’s awesome coverage here) for his role in a robbery at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas last September. Las Vegas Now reports:
“Former football great O.J. Simpson will spend anywhere from nine to 33 years in prison and his co-defendant, Clarence C.J. Stewart will spend 7.5 to 27 years for their roles in a Las Vegas armed robbery case. Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass sentenced Simpson Friday after saying he is arrogant and ignorant. She says the evidence against him is overwhelming. “I can’t ignore that the behavior on September 13 was reckless,” Glass said. Earlier, Simpson apologized and told the judge he is sorry about trying to retrieve memorabilia that he said belonged to him. He appeared ready to break down in tears during a rambling, 5-minute declaration. “This is the first time I had the opportunity to catch the guys red-handed who had been stealing from my family,” Simpson said. “At the time of this event… it was clear to the court, you believed you could do in Las Vegas what you couldn’t do elsewhere,” Glass said.”
I think I speak for everyone when I say ripping out this psychopath’s heart with a corkscrew would’ve been ideal, but being known in prison as the guy who cut off the head of the white lady seems pretty good too.
Update: Here’s a portion of the recording of the robbery during the preliminary hearing before the trial. Warning: NSFW language:
