O.J. Simpson Sentenced to Prison For up to 33 Years

O.J. Simpson was sentenced today from his conviction in early October (Berman Post: O.J. Simpson - Guilty on All Charges). He will go to jail for up to 33 years, but could be eligible for parole in about nine years. The video of the judge handing down the sentence is below the quoted text.

"A broken O.J. Simpson was sentenced Friday to as much as 33 years in prison for a hotel armed robbery after a judge rejected his apology and said, "It was much more than stupidity." The 61-year-old football Hall of Famer stood shackled and stone-faced when Judge Jackie Glass quickly rattled off his punishment soon after he made a rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, choking back tears as he told her: "I didn't want to steal anything from anyone. ... I'm sorry, sorry."
Simpson could serve up to 33 years but could be eligible for parole after nine years, according to Elana Roberto, the judge's clerk.

Hat time to Hot Air [] for the video.
