OJ has been sentenced to 15 years. What do you think of the sentence? Should the sentence be longer or shorter? Busch can pardon him since it was a state court that sentenced him. Is the world safer with him in jail. Does the sentence send a message to thugs? How long do you think OJ will survive in prison. Do you think he has any appeal possibilities?

On behalf of my fellow Floridians, who have had to tolerate the nauseating escapades of O.J. and has drunken girlfriend, not to mention the other assorted family members of equal or less class for the past several years, I say good riddance! Considering the fact that O.J. believed that he was perfectly within his rights as One Who Is Above The Law to go to that hotel room with a bunch of armed thugs to retrieve his personal items, and that the thought of contacting the police never entered his smug mind, I believe that he got almost what he deserves. The Nevada justice system worked and the sentence was fair considering his age and the fact that no one was hurt...or killed this time. O.J. will be a star in prison but I'm sure he will be kept out of the general population so I hope he finds solitary confinement to be very lonely. I sincerely hope that he's lost his NFL pension, that his property in Florida will be sold and that he will go before several parole boards before he's finally released...as a very broke old man. As far as appeals possibilities...nothing is 100% when it comes to the law but O.J. received a fair trial and was convicted with no claims of misconduct. Personally, I don't think he has a snowball's chance in he11. I didn't notice the drunken girlfriend sitting with his familly this time...unless I missed her. Maybe they already gave her the boot.

This is a definite injustice to the African American community, they obviously are only putting him away because he's black! ... Just kidding. Finally we have put this man behind bars, OJ Simpson disgusts me and I really do think he killed his ex wife and her friend, and I think this is just more proof to why we shouldn't let killers walk the streets.

Amen, sister! You know, he lived down here in Florida and we used to hear about some kind of crap or another going on with him and his drunken girlfriend about once a week. One time she "fell" out of a moving car. I was sick of seeing his ugly mug a long time ago and I'm so glad he's behind bars now.

I heard that he was looking at up to 33 years and denied bond during the appeal process. If my memory serves me correct he was found guilty of 12 seperate charges. I think I also heard that he could be eligible for parole in as early as 9 years. At his age I am thinking he should be able to maintain good behavior while looked up.

He will come up for parole for the 15 year charge in 5 but the odds are against his being granted parole the first time around because, even during his pre-sentencing statement, he showed no remorse and still didn't *get it* that what he did was wrong. Once he's paroled for that one another one kicks in and he will eventually go before the parole board for that...a time or two before that one's granted, which is when the last in the consecutive charges kicks in and he has to wait yet again to go before a parole board. Nine years is the earliest estimate but it should be longer than that.

Am I the only one that doesn't care? Yeah, glad he went to jail. I just wish the news would focus on nicer stories. I'm sure someone helped an orphan somewhere.

Well I think he is guaranteed to serve at least nine years. How much more of that sentence will he serve I don't know. I think he is right where he needs to be which is prison. He is a coward and probably should have shot himself in that bronco when he realized what he had done. I personally wouldn't care if he never got out.

Well if he WAS guilty of the murders all those years ago, then this would have to be one of the most solid cases of karma I think I have ever seen! The world isn't any safer without him roaming freely because he has been prettu much ostracized for many years anyway. As for sending a message to thugs, I think the sensationalism surrounding the fact that it's OJ and his history in parallel will be more focused on than any other angle unfortunately. He will survive just fine in prison too and will possibly even be somewhat of a novelty because of his "celebrity" status. He will lodge appeals for sure, but I doubt very much that he will be out of jail anytime soon.

dude beat a murder rap, whether he murdered nicole or not, there is no reason to put yourself in this type situation ever in the rest of your lifetime...i doubt dudes beating murder convictions even get speeding tickets...he deserves it cause it shows his ignorrance in believing he's above law. and this is coming from a black man himself.

This is nothing more that poetic justice. He will finally serve some of the time he SHOULD have been sentenced to when he killed those two people years ago, which he pretty much admitted to when he wrote that book about it not long ago. The title was "If I did it" (or something like that), but the title SHOULD have been "HOW I did it." Everyone knew he was guilty then, and everyone knows that the only reason he got way with it was because he had enough money to buy the system or to pay someone to tamper with the evidence somehow. I hope he stays in there a long time...

I have one simple statement to make about the whole thing and I do feel that O.J. is getting some form of his just dues here: I am glad our judicial system actually worked this time and didn't fail as it did during the murder trial. I guess he didn't have as much money to throw around and all his fame and fortune has worn off revealing who he really is.

I guess all those who believe he is guilty of murder would like to see him go away for longer but that was not what he went up for this time, at least he won't be so smug now, and hopefully he wont get special celebrity treatment as a lot of celebrities get....
