OJ Sentenced

I just watched the OJ Simpson sentencing live on ESPNNEWS. OJ was choked up as he made his closing statements, in which he apologized for his actions, and claimed he didn't have the intention of hurting anyone. But the judge had little sympathy for OJs statements, and sentenced him to 18 years in prison. OJ will be eligible for parole in 5 years

This trial almost felt like a "makeup", for OJ's last trial. Nevertheless, the man was clearly guilty, and its good to see the American justice system working properly. Nobody is above the law, and OJ will have to learn that the hard way.

UPDATE: Apparently, the judge's decision was so confusing that ESPN misinterpreted the sentence. OJ was actually sentenced to 33 years in prison, with parole eligibility in 9 years. So basically, OJ will probably spend the rest of his life behind bars. But hey, think about all of the money hes gonna save on green fees
