O.J. Simpson Found Guilty in Las Vegas

October 4, 2008 12:09:14 AM PDT
O.J. Simpson has been found guilty on all charges in the alleged gunpoint robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel room more than a year ago. The 61-year-old former football star faces a prison sentence of 5 years to life. A weary and somber Simpson released a heavy sigh as the charges were read in rapid fire by the clerk in Clark County District Court. He was immediately taken into custody.

The verdict comes 13 years to the day after Simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in Los Angeles.

Co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart also was found guilty on all charges and taken into custody.

Simpson and co-defendant Clarence "C.J." Stewart were tried on 12 criminal charges. The jury of nine women and three men deliberated more than 13 hours.
