According to Livesteez, the gig is finally up for the Juice:
Former US football running back OJ Simpson has been sentenced to 15 years in jail for armed robbery, conspiracy to kidnap and assault with a deadly weapon.
District Judge Jackie Glass, who described Simpson, 61, as arrogant and ignorant, said the evidence was overwhelming.
Simpson made an emotional appeal prior to sentencing at the Las Vegas court, saying he was “sorry” and “confused”.
His accomplice, Clarence Stewart, was also sentenced to 15 years after the two were convicted on 12 charges, reports BBC News. The charges related to the robbery and holding of two sports memorabilia dealers at the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas in September 2007.
Simpson and Stewart had seized the memorabilia dealers in an attempt to reclaim items linked to the former National Football League star’s sporting career, which Simpson claimed still belonged to him.
Before sentencing, Judge Glass said: “The potential for harm to occur in that room was tremendous.” “You went to the room, you took guns… you used force, you took property… and in this state that amounts to robbery with a deadly weapon,” said the judge.
