O.J. Simpson found guilty of robbery and kidnapping
A jury found O.J. Simpson guilty for kidnapping and armed robbery charges in Las Vegas.
O.J. and his friend Clarence Stewart faced charges for robbing a sports memorabilia dealer at gunpoint at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The trial lasted for 12 days and 22 witnesses took the stand.
The prosecution claims that O.J. plotted to get back his personal items from a dealer after he lost them while trying to hide them from the Goldman family in order to avoid giving it to them as part of the wrongful death civil suit judgement.
The prosecutor accused O.J. and other accomplices (who took a plea deal) of breaking into the hotel room and threatening the dealers with a gun.
O.J. was found guilty on all 12 counts. Ironically, the verdict comes on the 13th anniversary of the day that he was found not guilty for murder against his wife Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Depending on what the court decides, O.J. could get anywhere from five years up to life in prison.
