The OJ Simpson sentencing – 6 years or life in prison? A Las Vegas court rendering sentencing for OJ Simpson today decides for Simpson if minimum or maximum sentencing is appropriate.
Simpson’s team believes minimum 6 years, the prosecutor wants life in prison.
The events unfolded in the Palace Station hotel has left Simpson still seeking appeal despite today’s sentencing.
His attorney tells press in advance of the ruling shortly:
“O.J. comes into court with a lot of baggage. Even though he was acquitted in the mid-’90s, the public perception is that he did it.”
His team thinks the 18 years to life being sought is inappropriate, calling that sentencing request “of a hardened criminal mind.”
