Today, OJ Simpson was sentenced to at least fifteen years in prison for his part in a hotel armed robbery. The judge rejected his apology, telling Simpson, "It was much more than stupidity." Judge Jackie Glass refused to permit him to go free on bail while he appeals, and Simpson was led away to jail after the sentencing.
The judge repeatedly reiterated that the sentence in the Las Vegas case had nothing to do with Simpson's 1994 acquittal in the slaying of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
Maybe so, but these fifteen years are the only justice that Simpson will get for the slaying of his wife and Ron Goldman in 1994. The Goldman family, unsurprisingly, is happy with the sentence.
"There's never closure. Ron is always gone. What we have is satisfaction that this monster is where he belongs behind bars," Fred Goldman said.
