    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.

    Guilty across the board for both Stewart and Simpson.

    My guess is 15 - 25 years. Non parole, ten years.

    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.
