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’m ashamed of the OJ supporters. There hasn’t been an explanation for supporting OJ in the killings other than because he is black. The deep rooted racism by some members of the black community is completely ruining your analytical ability. The polarization of this country due to the feelings regarding OJ has set back racial relations several years. Pro OJ racists posts like some of the above only extend the process.

"This isnt about you GOLDMAN! He got his sentence why is this about GOLDMAN? " BECAUSE.. the civil court awarded simpson's assets to them. the stuff he stole rightfully belongs to them... and HE BRUTALLY MURDERED THEIR SON. you mean to tell me that you would not have been there too ?!? please.

Too bad the judge wasnt able to play his tapes back to him as she sentenced him, would have put the whole thing in perspective for those pro-OJ supporters that like to just spout off without having ever listened to any of the evidence. I am pretty sure the juice could come in there house, kill their kids right in front of them, show him his license, and they would testify that it wasn;t him in court, couldn't have been your honor, he is the man, the juice, you all dressed a white guy up to look like him and killed my kids, DOPES

10. The Judge made it clear that sentencing had NOTHING to do with his prior murder trial, BULLSH!T!!!!!

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

O.J is arrogant and ignorant but 15 years is a bit much........Well the Goldman's with their pathetic hounding asses got what they wanted.

What is so great is that it was a WOMAN who sentenced him.....OJ has so little respect for women.

I think it is more like nine years before he can attend a parole hearing.

I am glad O.J. was found guilty. I hope and pray the Goldmans get that 'stuff' that OJ was trying to keep. They deserve it..

If this trial had been in Caleeeforneyeae, OJ would have walked out the same door as the Goldmans this morning.
