After so many years it's hard to believe that O.J. Simpson will serve up to 33 years of jail time not for the crime of murder, but for kidnapping, armed robbery, and conspiracy convictions. Even though this case had nothing to do with them, the Goldman family attended the sentencing hearing yesterday. Ron Goldman's father Fred made an emotional statement afterward, saying that if his family's actions to recover their $33.5 million wrongful-death verdict over the last decade caused O.J. to commit armed robbery, then great!
Fred told press outside the courtroom: "We are thrilled, and it's a bittersweet moment. It was satisfying seeing him in shackles like he belongs."
While both the judge and the Goldmans said the sentence had nothing to do with Simpson's previous actions, we'll never know whether O.J. would have received the same punishment if he never was charged with murder. Do you think that justice has been served?
