    Very weird about the 13 year thing, right to the day, then it took the jury 13 hours of deliberation... He deserves it. Good to see him where he belongs finally.


    Can someone please explain how he is guilty of "kidnapping"? I completely fail to see the conviction on that charge.

    Anytime you hold somebody in a place against their will,or remove and transport themto another location against their will it is considered to be kidnapping.When he clearly said nobody leaves this room he was ascerting control over their ability to leave.

    If you are lucky (have enough money) enough to beat a double homicide rap you fly so so so slow under the radar. He is a PUTZ and got what he deserved.

    So, if an armed robber orders a victim to "freeze", then he is guilty of kidnapping as well as armed robbery? How come all armed robbers are not being charged with kidnapping?

    So happy that justice is finally served, but it still dose not hold him accountable for Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. He escaped justice in that case but the media, a bungling trial judge and a dream team of defense lawyers got him through that. He can appeal all he wants to, I believe they have too solid of a case to have it overturned or retried.

    I hope he never see the light of day again from the outside for what he has done in the past. He is a bad person.

    Depending on the circumstances during the robbery,sometimes they are charged with kidnapping,It depends a lot on the District Attorney and what charges they file,they usually file every charge they can think of to try to get a plea bargain,IIRC in some states a kidnapping charge will get you 20 years to life

    Sorry guys, but I fail to see the problem here. Was he aquitted incorrectly in his original murder trial? That remains to be seen, and I suspect he may very well deal with that before his maker at some point.

    As for this particular case, did he screw up legally speaking? Yes of course. That doesn't mean he was wrong. Sorry gotta say it. So, theft is ok as long as the thieves make it out of the house to sell the goods?

    Again, I'm not saying it was right legally. I just have a different moral outlook. I tend to take the viewpoint that theft is an impact on a person's right to life(among many many others). As far as I'm concerned if he found em with the goods, he can take em out back and hang em by their jewels. I think that's what's wrong with our country these days. We've decided too long ago that everything that happens to us is someone elses problem or someone elses duty to fix. WRONG!

    Please keep in mind that he WAS convicted in a civil trial for both murders, and found financially liable. That jury had no problem at all finding him guilty with the same exact evidence.

    I just feel that it was a grandstand trial with Johnnie Cochran and Judge Lance Ito allowing all sorts of nonsense.

    I remember watching the entire trial on TV (as I work from a home office), and there was no doubt in my mind as to his guilt.

    So let me understand this correctly If you shoot someone in self defence and in a criminal trial you are found not guilty, but the family sues for wrongfull death and wins. That makes you guilty of murdur? This is what is being said of OJ. Just want to understand this.
