O.J. Sunk By Classic Arrogance

12/6/2008 1:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Oj SimpsonKiller O.J. Simpson's killer arrogance torpedoed his chance for a get-out-of-jail card.

The man who hacked two people to death (relax, a civil jury said he did) was offered a plea deal but rejected it. According to the prosecutor, "Mr. Simpson wanted something just short of a public apology" and rejected a deal that would have kept him in the pokey for less time than his sentence -- 9 to 33 years.

Like we've said before, it was only a matter of time ...

OJ did not receive a stiff sentence. He could of received a lot more from my understanding he was found guilty of the 12 charges, including kidnapping and armed robbery with a deadly weapon. Twelve charges, twelve guilty verdicts, and the possibility of life in prison. Please! He got what he deserved......

Although the 94 trial had nothing to do with this verdict, (YES NOTHING), he got away with murder and should have taken advice to lay low. He continued to live in the spotlight, due to his ARROGANCE! He is an individual with serious mental issues. He and he alone did himself in....... Good Riddance!!!!

TMZ hits a new low    

Hey Dolly #40, what an idiot you are. Do you have any idea on earth how cases are tried? The Brentwood killings were in Los Angeles County and the District Attorney of the county prosecutes. And the county court houses are where O.J.'s trial took place. Those are in downtown Los Angeles. The pool of jurors was controlled equally by the defense and prosecution. Where jurors live is not where necessarily the accused lives. You can't "try" a case in Bel Air! And it wasn't tried in South Central Los Angeles! Please do not breed.

As for this case, it seems like a hell of a lot of prison time for a man who wasn't holding a gun. It's a miscarriage of justice that the two guys with guns rolled themselves under the bus pretty quick for their turn to cop a plea. OJ made a horrible decision but he didn't rob anyone at gun point. He was sentenced for manslaughter yesterday is my guess. Not quite murder, but more time than what was deserved for un-armed robbery.

Hey Guess what, Wrong again! The civil jury NEVER said "OJ hack two people to death" Because that was not their job, not could they say that, since he was found not guilty of the crime. The said he was fiancally resonsible for the deaths. (winfall for the money grubbing Brown/Goldman familes). Look like OJ can finally pay off the judgement with the libel verdict award he will most likely get from you! Get the fact, or don't you support this country legal system?

I feel so sorry for his children.

This is a person who very clearly does not think the law applies to him. From what I could tell, he told the judge he felt that he could do whatever necessary to get his property back, so therefore his intent was not wrong. This guy cares so little for his family that he ignores the law and ends up in jail. Basically those two younger children are now parentless--not even mentioning the fact that he very probably killed their mother.

The other big shame is that he probably taught those children to be above the law too.

No, Obama WILL NOT pardon him... get over it, he WON!

OJ should have been tried in BRENTWOOD first round.. WHY in the world did he not get a jury of his peers that time? That was doomed to fail... that was WRONG WRONG WRONG... D N A!!!!

This time he still thought he was above the law, even shunning the plea agreeement. He seems to think laws are for everyone but him.. Sorry Juice, Buh Bye!

wow..I really wonder what life is like for this man's children?? I bet no one ever thinks about them, they are innocent in all of this and it's really sad that they seem to be living in exile due to their fathers bad and horrid choices...

Of all the places to commit armed robbery. Vegas has some of the toughest laws in the country. Karma is a bitch, but so are mandatory minimum sentances.

OJ was on the audio tapes orchestrating the entire heist. Multiple felonies were commited including armed robbery, kidnapping. It doesn't matter if he had a gun himself, or ordered somebody else to weild

If the judge were really sending him away based on the California murders, she would have given a longer sentence, she did have that right after all. In some states just the fact that there was a gun involved is an additional 5 years on top of any other sentence. In California he would have received 2 strikes - the crime and the gun - and would have to serve 85%. But, truth be told, in California he probably would have gotten off......again. I saw a birthday card in Target today that had his picture on front, behind bars..the quote inside said, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!"
