O.J. Gets

9 Years!

12/5/2008 3:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to nine years in prison, a judge ordered today.

Play video
O.J. pleaded his case to the judge before she sentenced him, but to no avail.

Simpson was convicted on October 3 of 12 criminal counts, including kidnapping, armed robbery and burglary after he and a few pals broke into a Nevada hotel room in an attempt to recover allegedly stolen sports memorabilia. Two of the counts were dismissed at the beginning of today's hearing.

Simpson's cohort, CJ Stewart, was also sentenced to 16 years. He is eligible for parole after six.

David Cook, a lawyer for the Goldman family, tells TMZ, "Fred Goldman is certainly going to wish Mr. Simpson a pleasant journey."

Great!! He said he "didn't mean to steal anything"!!!! This guy's full of excuses. The definition of "didn't mean to" is when I'm walking down an aisle at the grocery store, and I turn and run into your cart because I didn't know you were there. Unlike the "other crime", this one was all caught on tape, OJ. Nice try though!

Very Interesting    

His first chance of parole will be 6 1/2 years from now (due to one of his counts being sentenced as CONSECUTIVE and not Concurrent, like all the other counts). Then he will get a chance for parole each year following that initial parole date. All the parole board members AND judges are elected officials. So there is NO way in hell that he will ever be paroled.

Bottom line... he will not get out until 16 years from now- 2024!!!

OMG    

He will be eligible after serving 6 years. They will appeal but it won't happen. Bye Bye O.J. It's about time you got what you deserve.
