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.
OJ Simpson Finally Receives Justice in a Court Room
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.
