Claiming to be an ideal prisoner, a contrite OJ Simpson asked the courts for leniency on Thursday (July 25) in hopes of getting his prison sentence cut short.
The 66-year-old appeared in a Carson City, Nevada courtroom Thursday via a video broadcast from the prison where he’s housed. Five years into his 33-year term, he begged the Board of Parole Commissioners for mercy.
He’s been battling the legal system for well over a decade, and just last night, O.J. Simpson was sent to jail for violating the terms of his bail.
Reportedly the former football stud attempted to contact his co-defendant in his Las Vegas armed robbery case. Simpson allegedly tried to send a message via his bail bondsman Miguel Pereira to Clarence Stewart regarding a plea deal in the case.
Maybe O.J. Simpson should consider going to law school and taking the BAR exam to become a lawyer. At least he could save himself some money.
The former football great will face trial on charges of kidnapping, armed robbery, and several other violations, due to his involvement in a sports memorabilia heist in Las Vegas on September 13th, 2007.
Here’s a shocker! The legal system totally let another celebrity slip through the cracks. This time it was former murder suspect, and current kidnapping/armed robbery suspect O.J. Simpson.
If you’ve been following this story, you know that the former NFL player is being charged with a grand total of 10 - count them - 10 felonies. And after producing $19,000 (the required 15% of his $125,000 bail amount) he is a free man once again.
After a tumultuous weekend, football’s former hero O.J. Simpson is getting some really bad news. If convicted on all of the charges filed against him, he will be looking at life in prison, something he barely avoided twelve years ago.
You may remember the infamous “White Bronco” chase back in 1995 after Simpson was investigated for the double murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her boyfriend Ron Goldman. And if he holds true to form, “The Juice” may be leading police on another highway pursuit.
You’d think that with his checkered legal past, O.J. Simpson would be laying low. But soon after the release of his controversial book “If I Did It” the former football star was arrested in connection with an alleged armed robbery charge.
The “Juice” was ordered to be held without bail after he was taken into custody and charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit burglary and burglary with a firearm. Simpson was staying in the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas at the time of the arrest.
A federal judge in Miami recently awarded the Goldman family the rights to the publication and distribution of the well known murder mystery If I Did It, the ”hypothetical” account of what happened on that night that OJ was accused of brutally murdering ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.
This is the end of a chapter in the Simpson saga that was closely covered by the Gossip Girls several months ago when the story first leaked about the new book. The public outrage over the idea that OJ might profit from “blood money” was so strong that, after trying to defend the decision for two days, the publishing house pulled the book and fired the editor in charge of the project.
The O.J. Simpson book debacle has undergone some new developments. At first, there was outrage over the book that O.J. wrote regarding his wife and Ron Goldman’s murders. Now if it comes out, you can buy it without giving the NFL star a dime.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg announced on Tuesday the decision to keep O.J. Simpson from collecting funds for a canceled book deal and TV interview, also ordering the book rights to be auctioned.
