Karma Baby: O.J. Simpson Sentenced to 9 to 33 Years in Las Vegas for Kidnapping and Robbery … The Juice Finally Squeezed


It really is true, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

In this case it will be O.J Simpson staying in the Nevada penal system for the next 9 to 33 years. 61 year old former NFL star OJ Simpson was sentenced today in Las Vegas by Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass to spend at least nine years in prison up until 33 years. Glass also sentenced co-defendant Clarence Stewart to at least 7 1/2 years behind bars with a maximum sentence of 27 years.

Reporting from Los Angeles and Las Vegas — Brushing aside a tearful apology from O.J. Simpson, a Las Vegas judge today sentenced the former football star to at least nine years in prison for the kidnapping and robbery last year of two sports memorabilia dealers in a casino hotel room.

Under the sentence handed down by Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass, Simpson would be eligible for parole in 2017. The maximum time he could serve is 33 years, at which time he would be 94 years old.

O.J’s apologies and sob story to judge fall of deaf ears.

OJ Simpson Finally Receives Justice in a Court Room


O.J. Simpson statement before sentencing

Your honor, I stand before you today sorry. Somewhat confused. I feel, like, apologetic to the people of the state of Nevada. I’ve been coming to Nevada since 1959. I worked summer jobs for my uncle in ’60 and ’61, and I’ve been coming ever since, and I’ve never gotten into any trouble. People have always been fine to me.

For more than 13 years, OJ Simpson has been widely regarded as the man who got away with murder … today in Vegas his luck ran out.

      He was pretty pathetic with all his crying to the judge.

      Karma Katches up with Kreep!

      So with Murder you can get away
      in the Good Ole USA!

      But do not try robbery with a gun,
      ‘cuz prison is not much fun.

    4. Michelle on December 6th, 2008 8:14 am

      Finally! The man will be behind bars where he belongs….


    5. Richard on December 6th, 2008 9:21 am

      He had summer jobs in the state? Now that’s a good reason to give him mercy … have any of US ever held summer jobs?

      I’m puzzled, though … a sentence ranging from nine to 33 years seems to be pretty broad. Why so much leeway?

      White America finally wins! Modern day lynch-Mob!

    7. Scared Monkeys on December 6th, 2008 10:11 am


      Hardly, it is called justice served.

      This is what happens when one breaks the law and there is no jury nullification. This is also what happens when one is allowed to literally get away with murder and thinks they are bullet proof.

      However, if your black and white world, maybe Barack Obama will pardon OJ.


    8. ANewGirl on December 6th, 2008 12:08 pm

      IMO, 9 years is not enouugh of a sentence for this Monster of a Man. This sentence merely fit and was applicable to the RECENT crimes OJ committed.

      OJ is a murderer—plain and simple. In cold blood he murdered Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman and walked around a free man for how many years???

      As far as anyone on this blog attempting again to turn this into a race issue—-kiss my Monkey A** on that, will you please?

      This is about the HUMAN RACE, and a criminal’s disregard for human life and breaking numerous laws in the country where he lives. Who the hell does OJ Simpson think he is kidding, anyway?

      Somebody, please send him a Shrink in prison because he definetly needs one.

      NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW !!!!!!!! The US Justice & Legal system is imperfect like any other legal system in the world. Mistakes have been made in the past.

      Bottom line here is, once again:

      A Zebra never changes his stripes. OJ (like Joran VDS) was bound to committ another crime and eventually get caught because a true Sociopath believes they are justified for committing their crimes and have no real fear of ever getting caught.

      Hope the Juice uses his time wisely to reflect upon his life, the hurt and pain he has caused many (including his own Children) and hope he muses upon what destiny awaits him when he goes to meet his Maker. I don’t think God is finished with him yet.

      #6 Wave

      Grow up!

    10. david r on December 6th, 2008 6:25 pm

      #6, why do think he got “lynched”? Are you sympathetic to him because he was once a great football player ? Or because he is black ? Do you think he did not slit his ex-wife’s throat and kill an innocent young man out of jealous rage ? I hope SM leaves this video up for a while. I get a good yuk out of it every time I see it. It could not happen to a more richly deserving criminal.

    11. Wendy on December 6th, 2008 7:17 pm

      I do not care for O.J. Simpson at all, but I see a much bigger problem with the judge’s truly biased sentencing. This case was ruled not by case law but in racist vindication of a previous trial even though he was found innocent. As in the past many verdicts for whites who have killed innocent Black/Hispanic men, women and/or children can be “unbelievably” acquitted by hand-picked jurys and neighborhood judges” and considered fair and just. The justice system needs to be “revamped” perhaps with a panel of judges from “all neighborhoods” so laws and sentencings will be determined on a more level playing field. Can you imagine, you are robbed of priceless valuables, the law intentionally denies help with recovery, you finally “take” your items back, no one is killed and you are now are facing up to 33 years of incarceration???? Come on !!! Let’s sanitize our justice system from this type of injustice or one day this could happen to any of us or worse yet OUR CHILDREN….

    12. michelle on December 6th, 2008 8:08 pm


      I don’t think you understand….Those items did not belong to him….You can’t just barge in and take items from someone like he did….

      As far as I’m concerned, he got just what he deserved….

    13. david r on December 6th, 2008 9:04 pm

      #11, there many innocent people of all segments of our society who are unjustly convicted of crimes, some of them executed. OJ Simpson is not one of them. The memorabilia he sought to heist was not even his. Even if it was, it would have belonged to the Goldmans. Were you siding with those jerks who were taunting Fred Goldman after the verdict ? It is amazing how many people point out how OJ was acquitted in the criminal case, but choose to ignore the civil case. He owes them $33 million. But I think the criminal jury was simply racist, just like the Mississippi juries in the 50′s who acquitted those who lynched blacks. They were just as evil.

    14. Wendy on December 6th, 2008 9:14 pm


      Ohhhh No denial here. You are obviously from the same “neighborhood” I wrote about. This trial was not about him barging in and taking things that did not belong to him. It was about how whites felt about this black man supposedly getting away with killing two white people. He was acquitted. Wake up. He went into this trial without any prior convictions except from the “neighborhood of racists” trusting a playing field deemed equitable. Ha! Look, I am about justice for all not for just the “chosen” and am confident that the passion you express is not for this case but the previous, so be it. Thank goodness Karma “does not discriminate”.

    15. kitty on December 6th, 2008 9:25 pm

      With a weapon, mind you… he and his cronies had weapons…

      The items did NOT belong to him any longer. He was THAT desperate to recover them.

      I applaud the Goldman family for keeping the pressure on him and O.J.’s agent was just as guilty for making that family suffer as they have, by diverting his money. Yes, the cases were seperate, however, O.J. got what he earned and deserved for this particular/seperate crime.

      It was heart wrenching seeing Mr. Goldman and his daughter share with the world, what they’ve been through on Dr. Phil show, with O.J’s agent present also discussing this ~ and very hard to watch. I have deepest respect for the Goldman family, keeping the pressure on O.J. and finally, finally, O.J. slipped up ~

      For O.J. killing of Nicole Brown, his WIFE and Mr. Goldman, yesm he walked away with blood on his hands, guilty. O.J.’s lawyers were brilliant to play the race card. The man was guilty, it didn’t matter, if he was purple, blue, red or pink… he was a murderer… who was aquitted.

      The Goldmans still suffer greatly, as Nicole’s children have, Both of their families not having a Daughter or a Son, Mother.. brother…

      ~for O.J. not having a fair trail, I’m not drinking that koolaid ~ he recieved the consequences of his actions and behavior ~
      there is NO justice, sometimes it “Just is”.

      This time, he was sentenced for his crime. His luck ran out in his crap shoot.

      Did anyone really believe he didn’t kill his wife and Mr. Goldman?… most folks where I live, didn’t believe it for a minute and it’s one of those memorable moments most of us, will never forget ~ he, literally, got away with murder. Now, That’s scarey… imagine how HIS children must of felt, not to mention, he was a danger to society?… Now, he’s locked up.

      No. 8 said it well, I don’t think God is done with him yet… he will have to meet his maker, as we all will one day ~ let him think of that, while he’s in jail/prison. Lots of time to reflect there.

    16. Wendy on December 6th, 2008 9:31 pm

      R.. What you need to be doing right now is writing the man who stole the election,excuse me 2 elections, orchestrated 911, out sourced jobs and probably has your but in foreclosure. Bushamanic has pardoned some pretty rough characters before leaving office and you think Obama should pardon OJ Why?? because he is black?? Every channel had this rediculous OJ sentencing although it should of had Bush delivering stimulus payments dates to the American people who need it most. If you want Obama to act on everything now then ask for Bush’s impeachment..Or shut up about Obama.,.,,,,

    17. Ed on December 6th, 2008 10:12 pm

      White America did not win. America won. It is a bittersweeet victory as 2 people are dead cause of this animal. I think even black merica came to realize that this scumbag committed and got away with murder. At least he won;t hurt anyone for at least 9 years. Hopefully more

    18. Ed on December 6th, 2008 10:16 pm

      Hey oj

      who is going to look for the murderer of the mother of your children? I have good news for you.

      The murderer is now in jail. So you can relax knowing that he is in jail

      you were right to search the golf courses. He was playing golf all along

      hahahahahahahah look who is laughing now murderer

    19. alicia banks on December 6th, 2008 11:14 pm


      see more on oj’s karma


    20. Betty on December 7th, 2008 3:07 am

      For those of us who followed this entire case closely from beginning to end, Simpson’s phony apology contained many statements that were outright lies — absolutely contradicted by the tapes and/or court documents.

      His rage has manifested itself over decades in violent acts. His sense of entitlement and greed was his undoing.

      When I read that Simpson turned down a plea agreement that the State of Nevada had offered and which would have meant less prison time than that to which he has been sentenced … I laughed.

    21. michelle on December 7th, 2008 11:54 am


      Wake up! This is not about racism. This is about a man who thinks he is above the law.

      Karma is a bitch and no I’m not a racist. It has nothing to do with the color of the man’s skin. He committed a crime and needs to pay for it.

      Those things did not belong to him therefore he had no right to try to take them. He was wrong.

      Get it?

    22. michelle on December 7th, 2008 2:05 pm


      Bush did not steal any elections, if you want to speak of stealing elections, then look at Obama. The dems & repubs are both guilty of why the economy is messed up, and Bush did not mastermind 9/11. That is really sad if you truly believe all that you post. You might want to do your research before you start spreading lies. What the hell does Bush have to do with O.J. getting what he deserves anyway? The man is guilty and he’s going to jail. PERIOD! It has nothing to do with the color of his skin. WOW! You sound like one of those people who make everything about race.

      SO SAD

    23. ANewGirl on December 8th, 2008 1:49 am

      #21- Michelle—You Go, Girl !! Way to tell the bleeding heart left wing Moonbat Wendy where it’s at!

      Uhmmmn, Yah- Wendy, Babe—the 60′s are over ok?? I know, I know….it’s all about peace, love & understanding but we stopped burning our bra’s years ago so save your flower child hippie BS for another blog…Thanks


      PS @ #11 & 14- WENDY——> We know Bush screwed up and that many mistakes were made over the last 8 years as well. There is so much wrong with our economy and so many problems to fix in the US Government overall, even Obama will not be able to fix half them in the next 4 years, so get a clue will you ??? You are delusional at best.

    24. not to metion the duck on December 8th, 2008 9:45 am

      finally some justice

    25. Michelle on December 8th, 2008 10:00 am

      A New Girl

      Thanks :)

      You ever notice how some people try to make everything about race? Those are the one’s that are racist. It’s really sad :(

      Justice has been served. He is behind bars where he should have been 14 years ago. He was acquitted of murder but found guilty in the civil case and has not paid the Goldman’s the money he owes them. He thinks he’s so smart but he got a judge & jury that wasn’t buying his b.s. this time.

      Well boo hoo…I don’t feel sorry for him. He’s a monster and he deserves to be locked up.

    26. super dave on December 8th, 2008 10:00 am

      oj is where he belongs. well , actually he’s not there yet ! he’ll go there on judgement day. and yes, white america did get some form of justice this time although it wasn’t harsh enough.
      better keep those butt checks clamped tight. one of your brothas is waiting on you.
      and talk about stealing an election. barry tops all in crooked elections. buying votes, stealing votes, cheating to get votes, using hookers to get votes. and last but not least, using his pals from acorn to secure millions of votes illegally.

    27. John schaeffer on February 26th, 2009 5:40 am

      They pulled a 1960′s style trial on oj. Some people get only 2-3 years for crime oj commited. The verdict was extreme but than again oj should have known the politcs would be against him.
      SM: All OJ needed to do was keep his nose clean. Sadly, he could not find it in himself to do that.

      Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time.

    28. John schaeffer on February 26th, 2009 5:48 am

      Throw bush in jail with oj save taxpayer money
      SM: How does it save tax payers $’s to throw one in jail? Who do you think pays for their room and board? Flawed logic, if any.
