O.J. Simpson Faces 20 Year Prison Term
Half Life ^ | 9/17/07

Posted on 09/17/2007 7:22:33 AM PDT by LdSentinal

Las Vegas authorities say that OJ Simpson could face up to 20 years in prison.

O.J. Simpson was arrested on Sunday, charged with multiple counts. Las Vegas police didn't say exactly what was on those video tapes showing OJ Simpson and other men entering a room at the Palace Station Hotel-Casino.

Police say that did a careful investigation despite the twisted stories that some of the witnesses told them.

Simpson is also heard on a phone answering message telling one of the victims, "Tell the police that there were no guns. I saw no guns. There were no guns." which only adds more counts of criminal charges.

O.J. Simpson could be in prison for decades, even up to 50 years depending on how many counts he's charged with. Police shed some light stating that the former pro football player could be in prison for 20 years.

It is also interesting to note that all those people who thought OJ Simpson was an innocent man for the 1994 killings of Nicole Brown Simpson, and Rob Goldman, are now shifting the other direction. While Simpson's criminal behavior started in 1994, he's had several run-ins with law enforcement for the past 14 years.

The book didn't help either. People who purchased the book are almost horrified by some of the credible writings that only the murderer would know.

As for posting bond, even if Simpson does post a 7 figure bond, the monies go to the Goldman and Brown families. Does OJ have money? A new witness has come forward to say that he assisted Simpson in moving monies to overseas bank accounts.

The plot thickens.

With the proper ignorant, racist jury, we’ll actually all end up paying reparations to this scum.

Well, they say OJ gets about $26,000 to $30,000 a month from his NFL retirement plan, and that cannot be attached.

Perhaps some idiot out there would get a kick out of posting bond for OJ?

OJ TV. Back on the air!

Wonder whats worse. 20 years in prison or another 6 to 8 weeks of “All OJ All the Time” Fox News that we have to suffer through?

He isn’t going to plea out. He’s going to try for a black jury (after all a black man is never really guilty - it’s just the whities putting him down) and a redo of his previous not guilty farce.

It would be funny as all get-out if OJ posted a hefty cash bond, only to have the court turn that money over to the Goldman family when he shows up for trial...

As one of the vanishingly small minority of people who think that OJ was guilty but the OJ jury came up with the correct verdict, I am immensely satisfied to see this man back behind bars.

It would be ironic that he would go to jail for a crime such as this and not for a double murder.

If he does go to jail, how will he be able to continue his tireless search for The Killers?

What happens when his lawyer argues that Simpson cannot get a fair trial anywhere in the country, since the jury pool is so tainted by people who want to send him to jail for the prior murders.

During juror examinations, all the defense attorney will have to do is ask each juror, do you believe that OJ should be in jail now for the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Any juror who would answer yes, it would seem, would automatically have to be disqualified.

Maybe after an exhaustive search of every golf course in the country, OJ has concluded The Real Killers are not at large, and are actually incarcerated for some other crime. This so-called "crime" is just a subtle and ingenious plan to get himself thrown in prison, so he can hunt them down from the inside!

They were saying on the radio that O.J. is being held without bond because he’s a flight risk.

Why was OJ banned from the golf course?

He had a wicked slice!

Simpson was born July 9, 1947. Simpson is 60 years old.

I hope that the Goldman’s and the Brown’s are enjoying this recent turn of events.

All O.J. has to do is claim he’s a Muslim and a closet Homosexual. Then he’ll be released because he’ll be defended on the basis of religious bias and homophbic society.

Last night on Fox they called the sister right after the arrest and asked her about it.

You could hear the joy bubbling in her voice. I thought, that’s one happy lady.

Well, that takes care of that!

Laura Ingraham said this morning that “Juice” needs a “Bro” or a “Manzerre”.

Pretty funny stuff.

So, who is acting as OJ’s lawyer this time? Jackie Childs?

wait it gets better, THINK OF THE PRETRIAL MOTIONS!

This case will be won and lost on pretrial.

The sloppy police work, the recantations, the inconsistent stories.

Look for:
Guns are baaaaad! stories
Unregistered guns are baaaaad! stories
Race victim. stories
Judgment collection. stories.

Simpson bought his way out of a double murder. Question is, will he buy his way to freedom again? The answer is fully dependent on the judge and jury. Ito was bought off and the jury was hand-picked in his last trial. The same might not occur in Las Vegas or wherever he happens to be put on trial.

I’ve never seen anyone so bold in action. He truly believes and has been rewarded for believing he’s above the law. Apparently his smiley image isn’t the only O.J.?

One question that occurs to me is, how good is the Mob’s control in Las Vegas? Do they just control the casino trade, or do they control the authorities as well? And could O. J. make them a good enough offer to persuade them to help him out of this?

Could be pretty expensive.

Instead of the justice system, I wish the mob would take care of this, and “help” him out of this, and his millions in gambling debts, by fitting him for a nice pair of Bruno Magli concrete shoes.

don’t know if he’ll get it but it’ll be something at least.
Kind of like Al Capone who did some
prison time; not for murder or racketeering but for
tax evasion. At least they got him in the
joint for something!

How can you say that a person is a killer but the jury says he's not guilty and you think that's a correct verdict?
