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."

"If I Did It" .... it should have been called "When I Did It". People can criticize the Goldman's all they want, but I don't see the O.J. backers bringing up this classless book he "wrote".

Burn in hell, O.J.!!

As guilty as OJ was back in 95 he was just as innocent in this one. So everyonje should be happy he is in prison. I guess Karma does mean something. However the Goldmans need to move on. They had no business in this courtroom other than a media show. I guess they will spend the next few days on all the talk shows, again.

This is wonderful news. If the man that got away with murdering your son had another chance to rot in prison, you would be at the courthouse, too.

Yes, the juice didn't seem to do a lot to "FIND" the real killers in the last 13 years, as he promised he would 13 years ago. Nor has he had a lot to say about those "killers on the run", funny, isn't it ?

If I was Mr Goldman, I would take some of the money that he won in the civil judgement and send it to some of the brothers in the Nevada pen to ensure that OJ does not have any silent nights. That would be Karma. Having someone use your own money to ensure that you are pimped out everyday.

WRONG, all but one sentence is concurrent, meaning, he got 16.5 years tops, and can be paroled in 6.5 years, but since parole in Nevada is decided by people that are ELECTED and not APPOINTED FOR LIFE, he doesn't stand one chance in billion of EVER getting paroled, because THEY want to get elected again, and paroling him has no upside for them at all.

So not 30 plus years, only 16.5 tops.

To the idiots who are saying "we all love you" to OJ, speak for yourselves, not for the rest of us. He is dispised by the majority of people of this country. From the looks of these posts, most people believe he finally got what he deserves.

I love "Mike" comment,and agree completely.I can't imagine the rage I would feel knowing the man who slaughtered my son was not only aquitted with the overwhelming amount of evidence presented at trial,but then taunted the family of the man he murdered,then wrote a book.Now he has ruined another mans life,Mr.Steward.If you look at all of the people whose lives have been ruined or negatively affected by OJ Simpson,it is mindboggling.
