This is not celeb news, but none-the-less newsworthy… [Website – Amy Grindhouse].
O.J. Simpson, the man who was cleared of murder 13 years-ago, now faces life in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping.
I can’t even lie and say I had been following this douche’s trial. I hadn’t. I don’t have as much time as I would like, to read anything other than yummy-delicious celeb news – as this is a celeb news site.
However, I gather that a douche being found GUILTY on all 12 counts, of armed robbery and kidnapping and being sent to jail, is a big deal.
So here is the scoop from CNN:
The jury of nine men and three women, none of them African-American, began deliberations Friday after hearing from 22 witnesses over 12 days of testimony. Chief among the witnesses were seven of the nine people inside Room 1203 of the Palace Station Hotel and Casino for the September 13, 2007 confrontation.
The evidence included testimony from the two dealers, four co-defendants who cut plea deals and cooperated with prosecutors and hours of often-profane, crackling, secretly recorded audiotapes.
Prosecutors alleged that the men, led by Simpson, burst into the room, flashed a gun and threatened memorabilia dealers Bruce Fromong and Al Beardsley.
The men then filled two pillowcases with Simpson trinkets, signed Pete Rose baseballs and Joe Montana lithographs. Simpson’s defense attorneys maintained their client was merely trying to retrieve personal photographs and other mementos that belonged to him.
Neither Simpson nor his co-defendant Clarence “C.J.” Stewart testified during the trial.
In summary, Douche ZERO, Jail System ONE – O.J. now faces a prison sentence of 15 years to life for gun-point robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room, more than a year ago.
UPDATE: Now with video footage of the verdict being read out.
