OJ faces life in prison

O.J. Simpson mug shotO.J. Simpson was freed on $125,000 bail after spending three days in jail. He was arrested on Sunday for his part in an alleged sports memorabilia armed robbery at the Palace Station Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas last week. Before letting Simpson go, Judge Joe Bonaventure ordered Simpson to surrender his passport. Simpson is charged with kidnapping, robbery, burglary and assault with a deadly weapon. If found guilty of first-degree kidnapping, he could get life in prison. Outside the court, hecklers shouted “Justice for Nicole, justice for Ron,” referring to Simpson’s acquittal of the murders of his ex-wife and her friend. Simpson is scheduled to return to court in October.

    That gives him plenty of time to write his next book.

    All the evil people wishing OJ ill are gonna burn with anger and rage, like they did the first time around when he walks free. The charges are thin…you really think a Jury of his peer is gonna condemn him to life in prison..for what? Just need 1 black jury member and he walks free…lets face it, its about race and frankly my dear, I dont give damn if he did the last time, as long as he walks free….yes pay back is bitch!

    I agree with you Mini…go OJ go! Let the haters stew in their own vemon! I think there is a group of people on this planet who should be vacinated a birth to eliminate the hate and venom that they have for other groups of people who do not look like them….

    First off, its not life for robbery. If you read the article you’d have seen that the life sentance is applicable to the kidnapping charge and it is applied to all people accused of it not just O.J. Second, in response to the ludicris and disguisting comments above by susy and mini. Why is it when a crime is commited it is ALWAYS someway turned into a racial thing. All people are doing is turning it into a racial thing by accusing others of making it a racial thing. All YOU are doing is spewing the HATE you claim that makes you so angry. Give me one good reason why this woman deserved to die the way she did? From what I read it appears to be “payback’s a bitch”. Payback for what the whites did to the blacks years ago. This woman (nicole)was obviously not racist. She married a black man and had a black mans babies by choice. She also dated other black men. Why were the other black men she was involved with not up on charges for the crime? The way you two believe the justice system seems to be just out to nab a black man for the crime so whay not them? Because they didnt beat the s##t out of her (nicole)time and time again. The story is that of an abused woman who left the marraige only to have a partner with a documented history of violence retaliate against her when he lost control of her. Thats it! Happens everyday to women everywhere. Slavery may be out for the black men but it is not out for women in this world. Women, are beaten, raped, oppressed to this day. Slaves in certain countries, afraid to even look in the direction of another man for fear of prossecution. To turn this event (nicole/ron/o.j) into a racial charged issue is a spit in the face to every woman out there. Domestic violence has no prejucice, it touches all women, black, white, hispanic, asian, middle eastern. ect… You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    This is just a small “aside” from the whole O.J. thing.

    I find myself cringing every time I read these comments. Did none of you learn anything in school or are most of you functionally illiterate? Worse yet are the people who have a valid point or two, but your gutter slang takes away from the strength of your opinion. Maybe instead of spending your time “texting” in slang you should visit a library, read a book, and learn to speak properly.

    Even O.J. managed to get an education and speaks quite well.
