GUILTY GUILTY



A court official says the jury has reached a decision in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery and kidnapping trial in Las Vegas.

Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer says, "We have a verdict." Sommermeyer says the verdict will be read about 10 p.m in Clark County District Court.

The 61-year-old former football star and a golfing buddy, 54-year-old Clarence "C.J." Stewart, were tried on 12 criminal charges in the alleged gunpoint robbery two sports memorabilia dealers in a casino hotel room last year.

Each faces five years to life in prison if convicted of kidnapping, or mandatory prison time if convicted of armed robbery. The jury of nine women and three men deliberated more than 13 hours Friday.

O.J. Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart were tried on the following charges and faced these possible penalties in a Sept. 13, 2007, confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel:

-- Two counts of first-degree kidnapping, felony: life in state prison or a definite term of 15 years, depending on the sentencing judge's discretion. Parole eligibility begins after five years. Use of a deadly weapon during a kidnapping can add an additional 1-20 years, depending on the circumstances.

-- Two counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, felony: mandatory 2-15 years in prison, plus a possible additional 1-15 years for use of a weapon.

-- Burglary while in possession of a deadly weapon: felony, probation or up to 2-15 years.

-- Two counts of coercion with use of a deadly weapon, felony: probation or up to 2-12 years in prison.

-- Two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, felony: probation or up to 1-6 years.

-- Conspiracy to commit kidnapping, felony: probation or up to 1-6 years.

-- Conspiracy to commit robbery, felony: probation or up to 1-6 years.

-- Conspiracy to commit a crime, gross misdemeanor: probation or up to 1 year in county jail.

13th anniversary of him getting away with a horrific double murder. It was wonderful watching his face when they declared him guilty. Hope his cell has a view of a golf course.

So if he serves 10 years he will be 71. This could be a life sentence for him.

It just seems to me the worst people have a way of clinging on to life. I hope the rest of his is very long and he suffers in anonymity and poverty. I think this is the on thing that would truly make him pay for his crimes.

I do believe what goes around comes around; his days of living in the penthouse are over. You could say if the video and audio fit, then you must convict. I applaud the jury and Judge for getting this scumbag off the street.

Legally it can't be considered. Realistically I have no doubt it was.

Fred Goldman pleased with Simpson verdict (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2008/10/04/state/n143901D16.DTL)


The father of the man O.J. Simpson was accused of murdering along with his ex-wife says he's pleased that the one-time football hero could end up spending the rest of his life in jail.


Fred Goldman, the father of Ronald Goldman, told CNN Saturday that his family is "thrilled to see the potential that he could serve the rest of his life in jail where the scumbag belongs."

Simpson was convicted late Friday on a dozen charges related to the armed robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room last year.

He was taken into custody shortly after the charges were read against him and is due to be sentenced on Dec. 5.

The verdict came 13 years to the day after Simpson was cleared of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, her friend.

Why? He ain't any closer to getting OJ's money then he was the day he hit the tort lotto jackpot. Sorry but I think The Goldmans are Pieces of shit. "my Kid got murdered and all I got was a Civil court to award me a shitload of money"

That's a little harsh.:eek:: I admit to being skeptical when they released the OJ book but I do not share your belief that they are pieces of shit.

I don't like the precedent his lawsuit set, for "back-up justice", but in the case of the Goldmans (not the Browns, they are a different matter, having ridden the OJ gravytrain for years), I really don't think they would have sued had OJ gotten convicted in the murder and sent to prison back then.

The story being told on LA talk radio this morning is that O.J. had the audacity to have a post-trial victory party planned and in place - thinking this was going to be a slam-dunk case. (Must have been inspired by Rumsfeld).

Simpson associate Thomas Riccio, after an in-studio interview Friday with radio talk-show host Anthony Crivello and retired Las Vegas police detective Phil Ramos, invited them to join O.J.'s entourage at an undisclosed location.

"That's how certain he was," Crivello said during an interview on Saturday, a day after Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart were found guilty on all counts, including armed robbery and kidnapping with a deadly weapon.

"He's been predicting a hung jury," said Ramos, who attended the trial and provided expert commentary on Crivello's show, "The Sicilians" on Fox Sports Radio KBAD-AM, 920.

Doesn't surprise me
