O.J. Simpson was found guilty Friday of robbing two sports-memorabilia dealers at gunpoint in a Las Vegas hotel room.The Juice could spend all of his remaining life in prison. Sentencing was set for Dec. 5.
Simpson was convicted of kidnapping, armed robbery and 10 other charges for gathering up five men a year ago and storming into a room at a hotel-casino, where the group seized several game balls, plaques and photos. Prosecutors said two of the men with him were armed; one of them said Simpson asked him to bring a gun.
The verdict came 13 years to the day after Simpson was cleared of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in Los Angeles. Now that is irony!
Now this might have been just classified as a dispute over ownership of some "old junk" had Simpson not brought a gun along. But his brazen action provided the courts with a second opportunity to put him behind bars. Now the judge took great lengths to ensure Simpson was provided with a fair trial. An usually large pool of 500 potential jurors was called, and they were given a 26-page questionnaire. Half were almost instantly eliminated after expressing strong feelings that Simpson should have been convicted of murder. The judge instructed the jurors to put aside Simpson's earlier case.Below is the video of the verdict.
