According to some of the comments we've gotten leading up to the sentencing, this ends a 15-year wish for this man to be held accountable for his actions.
Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass delivered quite a zinger while delivering her pre-sentence lecture.
"Earlier in this case at a bail hearing, I said to Mr. Simpson I didn't know if he was arrogant or ignorant or both," she said. "And during the trial and through this proceeding, I've got the answer. And it was both."
Very few people are coming to O.J's defense. The prevailing feeling seems to be is that he's made his bed over and over and now he must sleep in it.
Like we pointed out before, this event is nowhere near the epic moment that the 1995 verdict was. But, a sentence of 15 years given to a 61-year-old man equates to a significant portion of his remaning life.
Simpson addressed the court with an impassioned plea where he tried to portray himself as a confused and innocent victim in all of this. In short, he claimed he didn't know he was doing anything illegal.
He did seem sincere, although Simpson honed his acting chops in the "Naked Gun" movies.
In the end, his pleas fell on deaf ears and a strict sentence was handed down.
Simpson has gotten his comeuppance, in the eyes of these humble bloggers. And we know we're not alone. We only wonder if anyone out there cares to defend Simpson at this point. My guess would be no.
