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."

I really hope #64 was posted by a TMZ employee. Otherwise, God help us all because we have a racist, illiterate cop/lawyer running around somewhere. Also, #64, if OJ was suspected of dug trafficking as you claim, all the more reason to lock him up for a long time. Now go take an English course.

It's about time he served SOME time in prison. OJ you cannot simply do whatever you feel like, murder, kidnapping, theft, assault with a deadly weapon etc....AND NOT FACE THE CONSEQUENCES. I for one am GLAD to see you heading to prison to face time for SOME of your crimes....too bad they couldn't tack on time for MURDER too!

He should have been convicted way back when. I think that OJ belongs in jail, but not for these charges. How in the hell do you go to jail for stealing your own sh!t???

He wasn't stealing his own sh!t. He was hiding assets that should have gone to satisfy the Goldmans civil judgment, so he was actually stealing the Goldmans' sh!t. Funny how things work out. Enjoy your time in prison, OJ!

HOLY CROCODILE    

I hope bush gives OJ a pardon before he leaves office. He is not spending time for theft, he is spending time for supposedly murder. I hope the neighbors of a lot of you people steal something from you and then you not go get it back.Remember,you can go to jail if you go take it back. Granted,if my neighbor took my wife he can keep her.

OJ, OJ, OJ -- drop the bottom half of your prison pants, bend way over, grab your ankles and hold on tight, and prepare to become a big burly cellmate's wo-man! It couldn't happen to a more deserving piece of shi*.

OJ will be out when his parole comes up but the point has been made. Never pull a gun out in a casino property in Vegas. You could be Jesus Christ and the Clark County DA will crucify you. Fred Goldman must be happy though since he can milk a few more bucks out of the media for the renewed exposure.

Simpson could serve up to 33 years but could be eligible for parole after 9 years, according to Elana Roberto, the judge’s clerk.
