OJ Simpson was arrested Sunday for the incident last week where he allegedly broke into the Palace Station casino and stole some memorabilia at gunpoint. He was charged with two counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy to commit a crime and burglary with a firearm, and is currently being held without bail. The AP reports:
The district attorney said he expected Simpson to ultimately be charged with seven felonies and one gross misdemeanor. If convicted of the booking charges, Simpson would face up to 30 years in state prison on each robbery count alone.
How sad would it be if OJ Simpson got away with murdering two people, but ended up getting life in prison because of some silly hijinks over sports memorabilia? It’d be like Hitler getting away with the Holocaust and then getting busted for running a red light. And, you know, if the the punishment for running a red was life in prison. Which it is. I went to law school so I’d know. Yale, in case you’re wondering. And Harvard.
