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."

Where's Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson protesting outside, saying that his sentence is unfair "because he's black?"

"A child rapist get fewer years........."

Really? What country are you from? Maybe for consensual statutory rape you'd see a light sentence, but I've heard of few real child rapists who get 16 years with the possibility of parola after only 6.

Actually, if you add it all up right, he will serve a min. of 7 1/2 yrs, before being eligible for parole.

I really hate the GOLDMANS.they have NO business to be there at all. GET OVER IT! GOLDDIGGERS! This is a get even game and if they were really good people they would know they have no business in that court room. They wanted to make the judge know they were there to feel pity on them. OJ was found not guilty in the murder trial period. Goldmans need counseling period. A good dose of shut the hell up and get on with it!
