O.J. Simpson

Goes Down Bigtime

10/4/2008 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

O.J. SimpsonThirteen years to the day after OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder, he had the book thrown at him -- Simpson has been convicted on 12 criminal counts, including kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary. He faces life in prison.

Simpson has been remanded into custody -- which means he's in jail.

The Las Vegas jury delivered its verdict just before 11:00 PM PT.

Simpson and his co-defendant -- also found guilty on all counts -- confronted a memorabilia collector in a Las Vegas hotel to get Simpson's stuff back, with the help of a gun.

User "Hmm", your argument makes no sense: "if we're gonna have a "justice" system, then it needs to be a fair "justice" and not a revenge for things that a person was found not guilty for 13 years before".

So the verdict 13 years ago was "fair"? You even said yourself it was BS. So since the first jury got it wrong, and everyone knows it, this verdict was actually 'fair'. On it's own merits he should have been acquitted with those sketcky characters testifying against him, but this is FAIR justice, it's right a wrong, if the first verdict 13 years ago wasn't "fair" to the Goldman family, why you raise a stink about it? Makes NO sense, you can't have it both ways, the first verdtct was "unfair" and this just fixed that.

I'm new to this country from Belgium and I don't understand this case, please explain. If this character OJ Simpson has been proclaiming his innocence for 13 years, why has he not devoted every single day to find the killer of his wife and the mother of his children? Why hasn't he spent a penny on private investigators to track down the perptertators of that heinous act? I don't understand. Why hasn't he been looking for the person who killed his wife for the last 13 years? He plays golf all day? Did he know he was the real murderer and didn't care what people thought since he was a free man? Strange!

OJ has always thought he was above the law. Even those of oyou who say he was just getting his own belongings back, you don't take the law into your hands. I guess he thought it was OK to kill Nicole also because she was his "belonging". Poor Ron was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, justice has been served in a round about way.

die a painful death already Hollywood    

I HOPE OJ DIES IN PRISON FROM SYPHILLIS OF THE BRAIN HE CONTRACTS IN A VISIT FROM BUBBA .
OJ WILL NOT BE GOING HOME SOON OR AT ANYTIME EVER . AN APPEAL FOR A NEW TRIAL WILL TAKE YEARS AND HE WILL STILL GET CONVICTED AGAIN EVEN IF HE IS RETRIED . EITHER WAY HE WILL DIE IN PRISON WHICH IS WHAT HE DESERVES / ALONG WITH THE NICE THINGS THAT OCCUR IN PRISON.
YOU CANT STEAL EVEN IF ITS YOUR OWN STUFF AS OJ CLAIMED . IF OJ CHOOSE TO USE FELONS AND THUGS INSTEAD OF CALLING THE POLICE WELL THATS HIS BAD CHOICE . OJ DIDNT CALL THE COPS BECAUSE HE WASNT SUPPOSE TO HAVE THOSE ITEMS IN THE FIRST PLACE AND THEY WERE HIDDEN FROM BEING SEIZED TO SATISFY THE WRONGFUL DEATH JUDGEMENT IN THE FIRST PLACE .
THIS VERDICT IS CORRECT ON SO MANY LEVELS . THOSE YOU THINK HES SO DAM INNOCENT SHOULD JOIN HIM IN PRISON .

The jurors in OJ's murder trial got it WRONG and anyone with half a brain that watched that trial knew he should have been convicted. I believe OJ himself was shocked and amazed when that Not Guilty verdict was read 13 years ago. Instead of counting his lucky stars and trying to lead whatever kind of honest life he could, he continued believing he was invincible and committed this insanely stupid crime. Unbelievable.

So now this jury gets it RIGHT, and people are crying foul. That somehow this jury is merely convicting OJ as payback for the incompetence of the LA jurors and their verdict. Please. Finally OJ is getting exactly what he deserves, a possible life sentence for KIDNAPPING and ARMED ROBBERY, two very serious crimes. Even though he was aquitted of two barbaric murders 13 years ago, perhaps now the Brown and Goldman families can feel some sense of closure for the savage taking of Nicole and Ron's lives, even if it comes as a guilty verdict for a lesser crime committed on someone they've never met.

GOOD will always prevail over EVIL - What goes around, comes around. OJ's time has finally run out.

None of you heard the jury instructions or the definition of the crimes given to the jurors by the judge. They took their time and deliberated carefully. Unless you have sat on a criminal jury, don't pass judgement. I've been on three, and it's not an easy task. You have to find a verdict based on the law and not your emotions or gut feelings.
